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.

    Great, Awsome, Magnificant, Pure Genius

    I think it was a very good book because their story is in the the right order of events. Unlike the other books it's i the right order of events. Also, I think it was funny how Jon Scieszka had the script fal into the book so the people in mythology were saying their lines in the play. If you have a chance you should read it. It will make your head spin but remember it's only a book.

    It's All Wierd to Me

    There is apperantly something missing in the book It's All Greek to Me by Jon Scieszka. The book was about 3 boys that have a Greek Mythology book. When the boys(Fred, Sam, and Joe) hit or touch the book green mist appears and they travel back to Ancient Greece. The boys are supposed to be doing a play at school about Greek mythology but they mistakely hit thebook, then the green mist appears and they go back into the ancient days. In Greece, they meet gods like Zeus and much more of the Greek gods. The boys also noticed that mysteriously the gods have the same lines as the people in the play. Then for the rest of the book they are going all over Greece they are trying to find thier book. This book It's All Greek to Me I thought could have been written better and could have been more detailed and should be longer. I also thought it could have been explained better because when they reached ancient Greece they did not explain why the book was lost. I thought also that the book was kind of corny because it really seems like this is a children's book because it really does not seem to be real and the plot I thought was kind of stupid. That is why I only gave it 2 stars.
