2095 (Time Warp Trio, Vol. 5) School & Library Binding – March 1, 1997
Enhance your purchase
FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Three friends, Sam, Joe, and Fred travel through time having action-packed, outlandish adventures. The snappy dialogue and classic ""boy"" humor in this series of chapter books will engage the most reluctant readers.
Gr. 3^-5. The Time Warp Trio is back--to the future, this time, as Joe, Fred, and Sam travel to the year 2095, again courtesy of Uncle Joe's magic book. Launching their trip from the 1920s room in the Natural History Museum, the boys arrive in the future's museum, where they see the 1990s showcased in an exhibit of the past. Such ironies of time travel abound as the three encounter their great-grandchildren, who rightly strive to return their ancestors to the past. Scieszka writes with a kid's perspective at all times, blending a warp-speed pace with humor that ranges from brainy riddles to low brow upchuck jokes. Although the plot is a bit thin and meandering, readers will find sufficient distraction in the robots and levitation footwear of the future. Smith targets the audience equally well with black pencil illustrations brimming with zany, adolescent hyperbole.

Don't know where this series of book been when I was raising my son but I super glad I found them for my 7 years old grandson. He loves this series especially this one, 2095. He love the fact that the boys go Into the future and runs Into automated robots with lasers. I love the fact that now I have no trouble getting him to get ready for bedtime. All I have to say I'll read him a Time Warp Trio book.
