About the Author

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 received an M.F.A. in fiction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. He is the author of many books for children including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (illustrated by Lane Smith), the Caldecott Honor book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (illustrated by Lane Smith), and Math Curse (illustrated by Lane Smith). 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. In 2008, 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 acted as a spokesperson for children's literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading.

Reviews

Gr 2-5-More historical mayhem with the Time Warp Trio. Great-granddaughter Samantha drops in from the future, requesting the boys' help. Her robot cat has vanished into the past, along with her school report on George Washington and the gang's time-hopping book. The three warp back to Christmas, 1776, where a very harried Washington is trying to decide whether to cross the Delaware. His officers are all for staying on their own side of the river and predict disaster in battle against the professional Hessian troops. Meanwhile, the freezing, demoralized Continental soldiers are looking for scapegoats. The time travelers must save American history, find Samantha's missing pet, and avoid getting hung as spies. All the series hallmarks are here-short text; snappy, irreverent dialogue; and slyly twisted history. A must for Trio fans-old and new.-Elaine E. Knight, Lincoln Elementary Schools, IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

[The time warp trio s] tongue-in-cheek humor makes for laugh-out-loud reading. School Library Journal, starred review
