Overview

The Time Warp Trio find themselves in the middle of an adventure in prehistoric times, where cave art is a form of graffiti and "rock" music takes on a whole new meaning.

Some people will do anything to get out of doing their homework. The Time Warp Trio is back - and they're going back in time, all the way to the Stone Age, where there aren't any math problems. But there are plenty of other problems to keep Sam, Joe, and Fred on their toes, including a tribe of hostile cavewomen, a hungry-looking saber-toothed tiger, a bone-rattling earthquake, and a woolly mammoth who wants to turn them into toe-jam. But worst of all, how can The Book get them back home again when writing hasn't even been invented yet?

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Scieszka and his comic cohort, Smith, support the vision of kids in Your Mother Was a Neanderthal, one of the Time Warp Trio series. Joe, Fred and Sam are three wild and crazy guys who travel to prehistoric times where they face earthquakes, a saber tooth tiger, and the frustrations of communicating with cave people. All Scieszka's skinny time travel novels are fat with adventure, laughs, and tension. The Time Warp Trio reacts and relates the way kids would.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Joe, Sam, and Fred find themselves ``absolutely naked'' at the outset of this prehistoric adventure. While fans of the previous three books won't be surprised at this somewhat outrageous beginning, it's sure to catch the attention of first-timers. Scieszka's humorous, zippy dialogue and word play, combined with Stone Age icons (a saber-toothed cat; a woolly mammoth; cave paintings; and an interesting and hilarious collection of cavemen, women, and girls), are sure to appeal to readers. References to classic time-travel books-Edward Eager's Half Magic, Madeline L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, and H.G.Wells's The Time Machine- are bound to spur many readers on to other new adventures. This fast-paced, fun story is perfectly matched by Smith's wacky black-and-white illustrations. Another great book from the dynamic duo!-Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, ID
