Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Partridge
The dynamic trio, Joe, Sam and Fred are at it once again in this new segment of "The Time Warp Trio" series. The boys are about to start rehearsing their school play about ancient Greece when the script gets knocked into The Book, a magical time-warping tome reminiscent of The Never Ending Story. Suddenly, they find themselves in Hades, and so begins their quest to get back to the future. The celestial crew on Mount Olympus are a bunch of wise-cracking smart-alecks, sounding a lot like certain American eleven-year-old boys, many of whom might find the insulting tone very funny. There are a ton of references to actual facts about Greek mythology, so readers just might learn a thing or two along the way. This isn't great literature, but the humor, wordplay, and cliffhanger chapter endings could very well hold the attention of reluctant readers. There's a glossary in the back to explain a bit about the Greek mythological figures.
