Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maria Lamattina
I'm glad I was introduced to this book series based on a WGBH television series. Although I don't teach the targeted grade levels (4 through 6), I checked out the Time Warp Trio Web site to learn more about the books. Intended as a vehicle for getting kids interested in learning about history, the book I read should do just that—generate questions about who Lewis and Clark were, and what they were doing in that time period. Jodie, Freddi, and Samantha, "typical" twenty-second-century girls, are able to travel in time. On this adventure they travel back three hundred years, and find themselves in a dangerous situation with a bear. Lewis, Clark, and Sacagawea come to their aid. With lots of fast-paced dialogue, and one suspenseful situation after another, the book is an easy and delightful read. I intend to buy each of the series books for my nine-year-old grandson. Between the books themselves and the lesson plan suggestions on the Trio's Web site, I should be able to spark some discussion and even generate some potential research questions.

Chapter One

"Great. Just great," I said, pulling a twig from my hair. "I told you to stop messing with The Book."

"You definitely didn't, Jodie," Samantha said. "You told me to stop getting marshmallow all over it."

Leave it to Samantha to get specific at a time like this. Thanks to her sticky, marshmallowy fingers we were now stuck in a shrub in Rocky Mountain-nowhere, three hundred years back in time.

"Excuse me," I said. "You're right. Next time I say that, what I really mean is--stop messing with The Book." After landing in a bush, my hair was totally dreadful, and so was my mood.

"Fine," Samantha said. "I'll never touch The Book again, and you can't touch my cat."

"That's a promise," I said. Did she really think I cared about her silly metal cyberpet? We're talking about a tin cat that ate thumbtacks.

Samantha was about to say something back, when Freddi interrupted. "Uh, guys," she said. "Could you look at this?"

Freddi seemed worried--as usual. She motioned Samantha and me toward a clearing in the brush.

"Hey, it's The Book!" Samantha cried.

"And my backpack," I said, spying the pink mound a few feet away.

"Yeah," Freddi said. "And also . . . a bear!"

"AAAAAAAAAGHHHHHHHHHH!" Samantha and Iscreamed.

There it was--a giant grizzly bear--smack- dab in the middle of the clearing. It was rooting around near my backpack and . . . The Book!

Samantha, Freddi, and I dove back to our bush and hid in the spindly branches.

"Don't move. Don't even breathe," I whispered.

We had to find a way to grab The Book and get back home--and becoming a bear buffet was definitely not part of the plan.

The grizzly was sniffing around my backpack. He must have smelled something tasty inside. I just hoped he wasn't going to get his nasty bear-slobber all over everything.

Meanwhile, Freddi pointed out a bigger problem. The bear was lowering his big furry bottom toward the sticky marshmallow-covered book.

"Don't sit on The Book. Don't sit on The Book," Freddi whispered.

Just our luck . . . the bear sat on The Book. And thanks to the marshmallow goo all over the cover, it immediately stuck to his fur.

"Okay," I whispered. "Who wants to ask that nice bear to move his butt? Samantha?"

Samantha did get us into this mess after all. But apparently she was too busy getting a case of the hiccups.

"Hic," she blurted loudly. The bear turned his huge, mean face in our direction. I guess even grizzly bears know that bushes don't get the hiccups.

"Shhhhhhhh," Freddi and I whispered.

"I can't just . . . hic . . ." Samantha tried to talk between the hiccups. "I need to . . . hic . . . drink some water . . . hic . . . or stand on my head . . . hic . . . or get really, really scared."

Suddenly, the bear poked his head--sharp teeth and all--through the bush and let out a huge ROOOOOOOAAAAAR that shook the branches.

"AAAAAAAGHHH!" we all screamed at once.

We scrambled out of the bush and ducked behind a nearby boulder. Freddi and I tried to catchour our breath.

"Hey! It worked," Samantha said. "My hiccups are gone."

"Well, that's just super," I said. Peering around the edge of the boulder, I saw the bear rooting around my backpack again. The Book was still stuck to his bottom.

"Okay," I said. "Let's not panic. Bears are pretty dumb, right? It's not like we're facing a crazed mountain man or anything."

Suddenly, Samantha, Freddi, and I heard a twig snap behind us.

"Don't move," a voice commanded.

We turned and saw a man in old-fashioned mountaineer clothing. He held a huge rifle . . . that was pointed at us!

"Hic," Samantha blurted.

But something told me Samantha's hiccups were the least of our worries.
