Aaaargh!!! - A Review
Series - TJ and the Time Stumblers book 2
Author - Bill Myers
Title - AAAARGH!!!
Format - ebook, paper
Find on Amazon
TJ Finklestein is trying hard to fit in at her new school, Malibu Junior High. That's a little hard to do when she's the subject of a history report by two teenage boys from the 23rd century. Plus there's the small matter of the pirates. And the cannonball hole in her room. And that book report...Join TJ and her time traveling buddies as she learns lessons in honesty and cheating.
I've read Bill Myers' adult books before, but never his kids' books. This was hilarious! I loved every second of TJ's adventure.
I did think that the best characters were Tuna and Herby, the time travelers. The way that they got TJ into trouble in the first place and then tried to help her get out of trouble. I can't remember the last time I laughed like this while reading a book! I also loved the way that TJ learns the lessons she needs to.
I rented this book from the library to read as part of Tyndale's Summer Reading Program. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
Recommended to fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, teachers, librarians, kids ages 8-12
