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.

Meet the Author

Jon Scieszka

Multiple award-winning author Jon Scieszka grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second oldest and the nicest of six boys. Jon went to school at Culver Military Academy in Indiana where he was a Lieutenant; Albion College in Michigan where he studied to be a doctor; and Columbia University in New York, where he got a M.F.A. in fi ction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. In addition to his work as an author, Jon also runs a web-based literacy program called “Guys Read” that is designed to encourage boys, particularly reluctant readers, to get involved with books. Currently, he lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and two kids.

Recently, Jon was named the country’s first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a joint effort of the Library of Congress and the Children’s Book Council. During his two-year role as Ambassador, he will act as a spokesperson for children’s literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading.


LANE SMITH was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on August
25th, 1959. His family moved to Corona,
California when he was three, but spent the better part of every summer back in Oklahoma. "My family would take the old Route 66 highway. I think that's where my bizarre sense of design comes from. Once you've seen a 100-foot cement buffalo on top of a donut-stand in the middle of nowhere, you're never the same."



Lane has one brother, whose name is Shane. "Shane and Lane. My Mom thought this was funny.
Really. A real hoot. However, HER brothers were named Dub, Cubby, Leo and Billy- Joe! My
Dad's brothers were Tom and Jerry! I SWEAR this is true!"



"I had a great childhood. We lived in the foothills, and my brother and I spent all of our after-school time exploring, building forts, collecting lizards, etc. My favorite time of year was
Fall, when the wind would start up and the air grew colder. I lived for Halloween and I loved the old Universal studios' monster movies. Shane and I would watch them, then read each other horror stories with titles like Tales to Tremble By. The foothills were full of dry bushes and desert trees and in the Fall we'd get a lot of creepy looking tumbleweeds blowing through our backyard at night. I used to lay awake in bed and imagine what wild adventures might be happening in the hills. I think some of those memories later evolved into THE BIG PETS.



Lane supplemented the money his parents were putting towards his college tuition by taking a job at Disneyland. "I worked at Disneyland for about five years as a janitor. Only we weren't called janitors, we were called custodial hosts. One of my duties was to clean out the attractions at night. It was great to be left in the Haunted Mansion all alone. Another duty was to clean up after someone if they got sick on the Revolving Teacup ride. Like I said, it was great to be left in the
Haunted Mansion all alone."



After he graduated from college with a B.F.A. in Illustration, he headed for the Big Apple with a small portfolio of illustrations.



Since then his work has appeared on the covers of The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times
Magazine, The Boston Globe, Sierra, American Bookseller, The Progressive, Time, Newsweek,
Mother Jones, and Ms.



"A lot of reviewers have misidentified my technique as airbrush or dyes or even egg tempera. I
think this is because it almost looks as if it was sprayed with paint with little dots of color and texture visible. Actually, my work is rendered in oil paints. I paint on board, building up several thin glazes of the oil, sealing them between coats with an acrylic spray varnish. This not only dries the oil instantly, but also causes a chemical reaction between the oil and the acrylic. Normally, it would be a mistake to combine two opposites like this and in fact it was a mistake the first time I
did it, but I liked the results. I'm a big fan of artists who play with surfaces. I love texture and grunge. The trick is to know when to stop. Sometimes I keep adding more and more layers until
I've ruined the piece. Usually I stop when the painting starts to look interesting. Then I go in with a fine brush and add details, lights and darks, etc. It's a laborious process, but it's unpredictable and it keeps me interested and surprised. Of course, I'm influenced by other illustrators too, like
N.C. Wyeth, Maurice Sendak, Arthur Rackham, Edward Lear, Gustav Dore and Tomi Ungerer. I
hope I can follow the path these dark illustrators have walked, or at least use the sidewalk that runs alongside it."
