4.0 out of 5 stars An amusing sci-fi comedy 18 Dec 2001
By Michael J. Mazza - Published on
"Your Mother Was a Neanderthal," by Jon Scieszka, is a young adult novel in the "Time Warp Trio" series. The book features illustrations by Lane Smith. The story is narrated by Joe, a young schoolboy. With the aid of a magic book, he and his pals Sam and Fred travel back to prehistoric times. They have an adventure involving primitive humans and dangerous prehistoric beasts.
This is a humorous story that is nicely complemented by Smith's surreal, funny drawings. The prehistoric characters are amusing and likeable, and the three "modern" heroes have an entertaining chemistry. Overall, a pretty good adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! You'll never put it down. 23 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
What do you think would happen if you traveled back to the time of cave men and women? The time warp trio found that out. In the stone age, they met Ma, the leader of a group of cave women,(who were very civilized for their time)and her children, Nat-Li, Lind-say, and Jos-Feen. They also met Duh, the leader of a group of cave men,(who were not 1/2 as civilized as the women). Find out what happens to the Time Warp Trio in this awsome book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it and laugh! 31 May 2000
By Nancy R. Woodington - Published on
as I couldn't stop doing at the typically boyish descriptions of the misadventures of the Time Warp Trio in this little volume. The jokes may be juvenile, but they're not too juvenile for middle-aged me, and I was perfectly willing to read the whole book to my children for the sake of their (completely satisfactory) reaction to a joke about cooked meat.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved the TIME WARP TRIO~!!! 17 Mar 2010
A Kid's Review - Published on
I am a fan of TIME WARP TRIO. This is the book my teacher read it to my class. (I'm a second grader on elementary school.)
This is a hilarious book that three boys named Joe, Sam, and Fred travel to the past and the future with The Book. This time they traveled to the past in the Stone Age. The three boys lost everything except Fred's baseball cap, Sam's glasses, and Joe's straw. Then,as they follow the three girls,the adventrue begins!
I recommend this book to anyone who likes funny,adventurous,and science stories.

Time Traveling

By Zachary

Your Mother Was A Neanderthal is about three boys named Fred,Sam,and Joe who go to the past and see LIVE NEANDERTHALS!!! When they are there,they go through a lot of adventures such as teaching the Neanderthals to read and write.They got to the past by a book called The Book that Joe's uncle gave to Joe for his birthday.

Hope is found in this book because they hoped they would get back to the future because they were in the past.

A message in the story is never get ahead of your self.I agree with this because sometimes when I write stories,I put important things in front of other important things.Another is never give up.I agree with this because I never give up when hard things happen.

If I could trade places with a character in the story it would be Sam because I could recreate modern civilization in the Stone Age.

I think Sam represents intelligence because he can make clothes using leaves and vines.I think Joe represents magic because he knows a lot of magic tricks.

My point of view about the characters is I think Joe,Fred,and Sam are good characters.

Before I read Your Mother Was A Neanderthal I thought that you should give up if things were way to hard but after I read this book I changed my schema,now I think you should never give up.

I recommend this book to boys and girls because both might like the setting.Also recommend this book to kids in reading level 2 through reading level 4.I gave my book a 5 star rating.
