I'm a girl, and I have this best friend named Michael. I want him to come over to my house, but there's mistletoe. Umm... what if I walk under it with him? It would be okay... but awkward...

I found this book both hilarious and encouraging. It has a great message that becomes clear at the end of the book. In this one, TJ ends up accidentally being cast in a TV show... with none other than her little arch nemesis and craziness ensues (as in every book I've read so far in this unpredictable series). The book is very fast-paced, the main character is just the kind of girl I could have related to in middle and high school, and I "totally dig" the storyline. Definitely recommend... and I'm a very picky mom when it comes to what I allow my kids to read. However, YOU know your kid. Read the book first (it takes about an hour) and then decide if it's right for them.

Once again Tuna and Herby, tow 23rd century time travelers bumble around, creating havoc wherever they and TJ go. Talking elephants, super large babies, cat/birds, flying pizzas and more in this book! But the real heart of the book comes when TJ says, “I also learned to always try to think best about others because… God created everyone…and everyone deserves to be loved”. Crazy, zany book for preteens!

Oops! is the first book I have read of the TJ and Time Stumblers. I have to say it is quite interesting. I had a hard time following at first, but once I caught on, it was funny. TJ learns a great lesson of that everyone is different and God loves everyone. 4 1/2 stars.

The time travelers stumble from one adventure to another, from being chased down the aisle of the theater by an elephant to playing basketball to morphing into a goldfish. They have a thought producing pen that broadcasts people’s thoughts. There were those who talked too much, who thought only about themselves, or whose thoughts turned into reality. Weird things happened. It was not only funny, but it teaches a great lesson in dealing with others.

Once again, Bill Myers has crafted a humorous tale with a moral message: if you can't say something nice, keep the Acme Thought Broadcasting Pen far, far away! Seems Tuna and Herby and their gadgets from the 23rd century are creating more chaos for TJ. Somehow she ends up winning a part on Hesper Breakaheart's television show. Yes, you read that right...her last name is Breakaheart. But no worries! The P.E. coach is Steroidson, Tuna and Herby have a nemesis named Bruce Bruiseabone....practically every character has a strange last name. With the exception of TJ's major crush, Chad Steel. So, can TJ learn to curb her thoughts? Can she figure out a way to only think well of others? And how much more trouble can Tuna and Herby cause her? This is only book three, so I have a feeling lots more chaos is headed TJ's way. If your kids love goofiness, this is the series for them. Me, I like my stories a little less goofy. But I love Bill Myers writing, so what's a girl to do?

OOPS! is another wacky instalment in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series by Bill Myers. What would happen if your thoughts became reality? I mean literally. Well TJ is about to find out when the Time Stumblers thought broadcaster goes a little haywire and her thoughts become real life. She learns a valuable lesson in controlling her thoughts and what she says about people. This is a great lesson in remembering that we are all God's creation and deserve to be loved and that usually the mean kids are the ones who are the most insecure and need friends. Once again, I'm not super impressed with these books but if you are looking for some light hearted fiction that teaches good values for your middle schooler then they would be great.

This is the third book in T.J. and the Time Stumblers. T.J. still has Herby and Tuna hanging around and making her life interesting and helping her learn that she not only needs to be careful with her words, she also needs to be careful with her thoughts. While the book might seem a little odd to an adult while reading it will be perfect for an older child.

Oops!, by Bill Myers, is book #3 in the TJ and the Time Stumblers 6 book series. Once again, TJ and her friends, Tuna and Herby, delve into chaotic times. The story is so creative, over the top and silly. The fonts (some large – to emphasize emotion) are fun and make this series unique. The lesson taught in this tale (there is a moral to each book) is to watch your tongue. It’s easy to slip into negativity, and it can be hurtful to others when you say not-so-nice-things about them. If you think nice things, that’s what will come out of you. (Matthew 15:18, “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.”)

(To begin, let me say that I'm over a decade out of the target audience age range, so that definitely affects my opinion of the book.)  "Oops!" is the third book in a "juvenile" series about a modern-day junior-high student, T.J., and her from-the-future pals, Herby and Tuna. This book chronicles her adventures over the course of a crazy, action-packed week as she deals with one catastrophe after another resulting from the chaos of having two 23rd century companions and all of their sci-fi gadgets. A lot of the craziness in "Oops!" results from a futuristic invention that makes thoughts audible, which is obviously disastrous, if not as funny as the author intended. I found it a little obnoxious, but again, I'm an older reader than the author intends. ;-) Like the other books in the series, the author uses font size and shape changes along with written sound effects to bring the story to life, which is amusing.  "Oops!" teaches the importance of not only being careful of what we say, but also of what we think, a great Biblical truth, as Matthew 12:34 says, "For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks." Definitely a great lesson for readers of all ages, but how great to learn it while still young? However, I did not appreciate the plethora of boyfriend/girlfriend stuff and some of the "he's hot" or "she's a babe" lingo in the book especially since the main characters are like 12 and 13. So, for that reason I'm going back to down to 3 stars for this book (I gave the previous one in the series 4).

TJ is still dealing with the 2 guys from the 23rd century. They continue to make a mess of things. After several mishaps, TJ learns that she should not say mean things about others, even if she doesn't like them. I thought this book was good, and just as silly as the previous books in the series. A good lesson about kindness was taught in the story.

Over the top This book is so over the top - beyond what happened previously. Not that the book doesn't make good points about valuable lessons, but maybe it would be good for TJ to have to live with the consequences of her actions instead of getting a do-over thanks to 23rd century technology. Of course, that would make for a really awkward life, in this instance.

This is our third book in the 'TJ and the Time Stumblers' series.  "Oops!" focuses again on our heroine, 13 year old TJ Finkelstein.  TJ is still being observed by Tuna & Herby, two characters from the future (23rd century!), who have chosen her as a case-study for their history project.  Eventually, TJ will become a great world leader, but at the moment she is facing some life and character decisions. In this book, TJ gets a part on her fake frenemy Hesper Breakahart's TV show, and struggles to understand that underneath it all, Hesper just might be a real person who is extremely insecure.  (Knowing people's thoughts is soooo inconvenient sometimes!!) This book teaches a great lesson on how your thoughts can become your actions.....

This is book three in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series. I think this series has great appeal for kids because of the silly dialogue, malfunctioning machines, and general chaos. In the midst of all the catastrophes, Myers manages to convey a different message in each book. In this book, the message is to say nice things about others. TJ learns that it is easier to say only nice things about others by only thinking nice things about others. This stems from viewing others as a unique and special creation of God. I recommend this series of books to kids and adults who have kids. It is light-hearted and funny with a valuable message!

Good, clean fun. I like the creativity and the humor. These books are very entertaining. This is a really fun series with an unusual concept and likeable bumbling time travellers. The author writes extremely well and makes me laugh. The books have imagination, action, and futuristic technology that malfunctions frequently. In this episode, I love the touching scene with TJ and her dad. The characters make a point in an amusing way for young readers.

In Oops!, one of Herby and Tuna’s whacky, broken gadgets reveals anyone’s opinion about other people and starts to turn TJ’s cruel or judgmental thoughts into realities. TJ learns the lesson that all of God’s creations need to be loved, no matter how mean he or she might be to others. The “cutest boy in school,” Chad Steel, begins to feature more heavily in this book, so those sensitive to “crush” and “boy/girl” language should take note. I received the TJ and the Time Stumblers series (6 books in all) for my classroom, and they quickly became hits with a lot of the kids. A Christian riff on Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the Time Stumblers series features Herby and Tuna, two silly guys from the 2200’s who travel back in time to the twenty-first century in order to get some first-hand data for their history project on TJ Finkelstein, a great world leader from their past. They end up stuck with a seventh-grade version of TJ in her own time, and while they work on finding their way home they help TJ learn many of the biblical virtues and life lessons that will make her a godly and revered leader one day. My female students love that the books feature a godly heroine who, though destined for greatness, struggles with the same hardships, homework, and heartbreaks as them; and the boys get a kick out of Herby and Tuna’s antics.

Oops! the third book in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series brings more of TJs side splitting antics. Definitely a must read for those who have read the first two books. Bill Myers has out done himself once again.

In my opinion this was a cute and simple book – but in the opinion of my non-reading 11-year-old, this book was AWESOME! Even my teen enjoyed it. We both agreed that it was fun and a definite Christian read that will enhance even the most reluctant reader’s bookshelf. This was the third book in the series and I picked it up and enjoyed it without confusion – though I will be buying more. This book received an A+ from me because it’s the first book my son has finished with more than 100 pages… Except for the Wimpy Kid series.
