Author - Bill Myers
Title - Yikes!
Format - ebook, paper
Find on Amazon
Tuna and Herby have almost fixed their time pod and will be able to return to the 23rd century. They just need an ostrich to digest the chili. But needless to say, they still manage to accidentally transport TJ's science class to the wilds of Africa, get turned into a baby ostrich, and send a Mama Gorilla to New York. Still it's business as usual for TJ as she once again has a lesson to learn.
This is the conclusion to this series. (Well not for me as I still need to read books 1 & 5). I have to say I've enjoyed this series far more than I thought I would. I love the way that Tuna and Herby teach TJ practical lessons and that she really does learn them.
In this one, TJ learns the importance of being a servant. She learns that there is more to leadership than just leading. Leaders must also serve.
I have loved each of these books. I highly recommend them to kids ages 8-12.
I rented this book from the library to read as part of the Tyndale 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
