This was a pretty quick read. While a middle grade novel about time travel is not completely original, Gutmand makes it his own. Luke, Julia, David and Isabel are approached by a stranger and is given 4 $5 bills and an invitation. This leads them to a meeting with Chris Zandergoth and presented with an opportunity for an adventure of a lifetimes. They accept and travel back to November 18,1863. They are given the task of getting a picture of Abraham Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address. Gutman keeps the reader engaged by allowing for the unplanned to happen. Despite every attempt to not to, the Flashback Four finds themselves in a situation that they may not be able to get out of. They quickly realize that they are in over their heads and that they may be stuck in 1863 forever. Really, the only downside is that the story ends on a cliffhanger. It was nice to go back in history and see it as if it was the present. This is a book that I would recommend to upper elementary/lower middle school, to teachers who wants a fun way to introduce this part of history to their students, and to kids who enjoy or are interested in history and time travel.
3 stars ***
Four children are invited to go back in time to take a photo of Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address. Along the way, they develop an understanding of history in general along with the specific time period of the adventure.
This fast-paced, light-hearted adventure immerses readers in history using an approach that will appeal to a broad audience.
The book includes an author’s note, further readings and websites, as well as places to visit.
Librarians will find fans of Dan Gutman flocking to his new middle grades series. Readers will particularly enjoy how the narrator jumps into the story providing historical information. The diverse cast of characters and unique approach will keep readers coming back for more.
