    Okay...I'm a huge fan of Bill Myers. I've loved his books forever, both for kids and adults. But Tj, Tuna and Herby....too over the top cheesy for me. "Yikes" wraps up the series, and the antics are way, way too much. I mean, in order to get home, they need chili and a baby ostrich? C'mon! The one redeeming element is the lesson of servanthood that TJ finally grasps, securing the future the boys have come from and are trying to return to. Maybe if I was a ten-year-old I'd find the books cool. But for me they were just too silly, and by the end, I won't be remembering this series with fondness.

    Yikes!!! is the sixth book in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series by Bill Myers. It is also the last book. In this book the gang (TJ, Herby, and Tuna) end up teleported to Africa, but it's not just them, TJ's schoolmates end up transported as well. They end up spending two days in Africa while Herby and Tuna try to get everything figured out. Many scary situations happen and TJ learns that too lead you must be a servant.




    The lesson of this book is very valuable and this book actually is the best I've read from them. She has finally learned to forgive and so there isn't as much bad talk of Hesper which is nice. There are still grammatically incorrect words but of course, if your child is old enough to realize they are incorrect than it would be fine. Overall it's a nice ending to this series.

    Strangest book of the series


    This is not my favorite series. The book itself follows the series' standard outloopishness but really takes it over the top. It is nice to see TJ start becoming a leader though. I was glad TJ matured where Chad was concerned, but don't like the actual ending to the book.  While TJ exhibits servitude in her adventure, it doesn't show the carry-over into her family life, which I found disappointing. I also thought the author broke the 4th wall too often.
