Front Flap

"Joe, Sam, and Fred are feeling pretty smug. Their ancient Egypt history projects are all finished, and they haven't even considered using The Book - that magical time-travel book that has landed them in some amazing times and places, and some even more amazing trouble!

"But who figured on Joe's sister Anna and her cat Cleo getting into the act? Soon the Time Warpers are dodging crocodiles on the Nile, out-witting the evil high priest in tombs and temples, and searching for an escape route from the top-secret mummy-making chamber."

Jon Scieszka (1954- ) is a favorite on my bookshelf not only for his great children's stories - Time Warp Trio, Stinky Cheese Man, The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, and many others - but for his advocacy of children's literacy. He founded Guys Read in 2001 to get boys to read and love it so much they become lifelong readers, and maybe even writers.

Lane Smith (1959 - ) is one of the most-recognized children's book illustrators of the last fifty years. He's been awarded the prestigious Kate Greenaway Award, two Caldecott Honors, Horn Book Honors, five New York Times' Best Illustrated Book awards, and many other honors.
