Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One minute the guys are wrestling around in Joe's room, the next minute The Book has transported them back to ancient Rome-and face to face with one big old gladiator. Luckily Joe, Sam and Fred, the Time Warp Trio, have seen enough professional wrestling to make it through gladiator school-but not even a bodyslam can help them at the Colosseum. Will our trusty heroes be able to find The Book and hightail it out of there-or will the Romans turn them into mincemeat first?

"[The Time Warp Trio's] tongue-in-cheek humor, laced with understatement and wordplay, makes for laugh-out-loud reading." (School Library Journal, starred review)

About the Author

Multiple award-winning author Jon Scieszka grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second oldest and the nicest of six boys. Jon went to school at Culver Military Academy in Indiana where he was a Lieutenant; Albion College in Michigan where he studied to be a doctor; and Columbia University in New York, where he received an M.F.A. in fiction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. He is the author of many boks for children including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (illustrated by Lane Smith), the Caldecott Honor book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (illustrated by Lane Smith), and Math Curse (illustrated by Lane Smith).  In addition to his work as an author, Jon also runs a web-based literacy program called “Guys Read” that is designed to encourage boys, particularly reluctant readers, to get involved with books. In 2008, Jon was named the countrys first National Ambassador for Young Peoples Literature, a joint effort of the Library of Congress and the Childrens Book Council. During his two-year role as Ambassador, he acted as a spokesperson for childrens literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading.
