Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Another adventure featuring the three boy heroes of The Good, the Bad and the Goofy and Scieszka's other time-travel comedies, this action-packed tale takes the trio to ancient Egypt. Ages 7-11. (July)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The Time Warp Trio is off on another adventure and this time it takes place in Egypt. This adventure is slightly different because Anna, Joe's sister gets to go along. The crazy combination of contemporaryt kids in a civilization more than 3,000 year old provides an opportunity for plenty of humor. There is also a smattering of historical facts, Egyptian mythology, and a perilous situation brought about by nasty priest named Hatsnat. Readers know that the kids will escape but the suspense is still there and the ending offers and interesting twist. 1998 (orig.
Children's Literature - Donna Freedman
Joe, Sam and Fred-those fast friends and even faster time travelers of Scieszka's popular "Time Warp Trio" series-are at it again, zipping back to ancient Egypt as they work on a Egyptology project for school. This time, Joe's pesky younger sister and her cat go along for the ride. It's a briskly written tale, with Scieszka's trademark snappy dialogue and kid-friendly sense of humor. (The Egyptian villain, for example, is named Hatsnat-pronounced "Hot Snot.") As usual, Scieszka manages to sneak in some interesting historical details, from pharaohs to brain hooks. Girls who read the series will no doubt be glad to have a female protagonist for a change; the Time Warpers think Anna's a pain, yet she not only pulls her own weight but helps them get back home.
