Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Scieszka and his comic cohort, Smith, support the vision of kids in Knights of the Kitchen Table, one of the "Time Warp Trio" series. Joe, Fred and Sam are three wild and crazy guys who travel in time. All Scieszka's skinny time travel novels are fat with adventure, laughs, and tension. Their seventy-plus pages feature wacky heroes who are consistently kid-like, and each book fulfills a promise of wild adventure and giggles galore while making history come alive.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-- A book from his magician uncle transports Joe and his friends, Fred and Sam, back in time to swashbuckling adventures fraught with dangers at every turn. In the first story, quick thinking and daring-do save them from a fire-breathing dragon and a foul-smelling giant; in the second, an encounter with the dreaded Blackbeard almost causes their demise. Tongue-in-cheek humor, laced with understatement and word play, makes for laugh-out-loud reading, as verbal insults are hurled, and the boys outwit their foes. Villains and heroes clash, as do modern and archaic language and dress, causing misunderstandings and mayhem. Short, easy-to-read sentences and lots of zany dialogue perfectly suit the breathless pace. Smith brings new dimension to black-and-white drawings, as looming villains tower over the trio, brandishing swords or lances, and the boys escape their captors. A true melding of word and pictures, and jolly good fun. --Trev Jones, School Library Journal
