In this story based on a TV script, Jodie, Samantha, and Freddi use "The Book" to warp back to 1937 and answer a distress call from Amelia Earhart. They have a hunch that Fred Noonan, the navigator, may have been responsible for the aviator's disappearance; however, these time travelers are not allowed to alter history. This is not their only problem, as "The Book" keeps disappearing, and without it, the girls might not be able to return to their own time zone. Colorful cartoon illustrations on every page enhance this plot-driven tale that packs a great deal of action into a few short chapters. Hopefully this early exposure will pique children's interest and encourage them to tackle the original books when they are ready.
