Time Warp Trio #10: Sam Samurai Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They've conquered the summer reading list, Greek monsters, and Roman gladiators, but a poetry assignment? Stuck writing haikus for English class, Joe, Sam, and Fred take one little break from doing their homework and BAM!-they land smack-dab in the middle of seventeenth-century Japan. But how will the boys search out The Book and find their way back home when they're busy dealing with grumpy samurai warriors with really big swords?

"You say there's nothing for boys to read? Never fear, the Time Warp Trio has arrived." (Booklist)

Synopsis:

Everyone’s favorite time-travelers are changing their styles!  The Time Warp Trio series now features a brand-new, eye-catching design, sure to appeal to longtime fans, and those new to Jon Scieszka’s wacky brand of humor.

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 books 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.
