Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

POPGr 3–5—Everyone in Abby's class hates history, especially her stepbrother, Doc. At the end of the school day, when Abby and Doc are waiting for their mom in the library storage room, they hear a thump coming from inside one of the cardboard boxes. Suddenly, out jumps Abraham Lincoln. He has traveled through time to let the students know that because of their complaints, he and other famous people have decided to quit history. This is where Abby's and Doc's exciting adventure begins. They must undo the damage they have done so that Abraham Lincoln will show up to the election and win the presidency. In this first book of the "Mixed-up History" series, Sheinkin combines historical facts with outlandish time travel antics. His historical note at the end encourages readers to "look it up" to find evidence of the unbelievable facts he shares about notable historical figures. Black-and-white line drawings reinforce the silliness of the story, while the short chapters will keep reluctant readers hooked. VERDICT A fun way to entice students to embrace what might seem, at first glance, like boring history.—Annette Herbert, F.E. Smith Elementary School, Cortland, NY

Review

“Mixing history, humor, and cartoon illustrations, Sheinkin’s new series for young readers blends the appeal of Scieszka’s Time Warp Trio, Osborne’s Magic Tree House, and Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.” ―Booklist

“By the end, readers will have learned quite a bit of history along with the protagonists, without being bored at all [in this] silly story.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“[A] lively Abraham Lincoln–themed romp . . . The truth about historical figures, Sheinkin suggests, is more interesting than the myths, and Lincoln’s story concludes with hints about the historical mix-ups that will figure into subsequent books.” ―Publishers Weekly

Black-and-white line drawings reinforce the silliness of the story, while the short chapters will keep reluctant readers hooked. A fun way to entice students to embrace what might seem, at first glance, like boring history.” ―School Library Journal

“A historical home run!” ―Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of Captain Underpants

“Imagine what the world would be like if Steve Sheinkin had decided to become a NASCAR driver instead of one of the finest history writers I know of. Or what if Neil Swaab chose to be a pastry chef instead of becoming one of the most clever cartoonists alive? Well, those guys might be happy, but it would be a very dull world indeed because we wouldn't have the terrific "Time Twisters" series for our reading pleasure. If you want to have fun while simultaneously learning some truly valuable lessons about history, then you absolutely MUST read these books.” ―Nick Bruel, New York Times–bestselling author of the Bad Kitty series

“A dash of history. A scoop of fun. Give this book to hungry readers everywhere!” ―Jennifer L. Holm, New York Times–bestselling author of The Fourteenth Goldfish, on Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean

Undefeated:

“A model of research and documentation as well as of stylish writing that tells an always absorbing story.” ―Booklist, starred review

“A gifted storyteller who never forgets the story in history. . . . Superb nonfiction that will entertain as it informs.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Most Dangerous:
“Easily the best study of the Vietnam War available for teen readers.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review

The Port Chicago 50:
“Sheinkin delivers another meticulously researched WWII story.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

Bomb:
“This is edge-of-the-seat material.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review

The Notorious Benedict Arnold:
“American history is brought to life in this engaging story of revolution and treason.” ―School Library Journal, starred review
