Product Description

Review

"The snappy dialogue and classic boy humor in this series of chapter books guarantee chuckles from the most reluctant readers--and the generous type size and McCauley's comic illustrations don't hurt either."

Format: Paperback
I'm a big fan of the Time Warp Trio series. The jokes and puns are inventive. The three boys interact well together. The informative bits, (Maya calendar, number system), are interesting without breaking the flow of the adventure.

But. The first few volumes have more of a sense of fun and adventure. These later books have a little bit of a weary, here-we-go-again, flavor, and reading them seems more like a task than an entertainment. Maybe that's inevitable when you have an invariable formula for each book. And it's probably OK for big fans of the series. But, this might not be where to start a new reader of the series.

And remember, these books are all so much better than the fart/poop/booger books that are usually flogged off on "boys and reluctant readers", whatever that dismissive description is supposed to mean.

My 15 yr old has been a big fan of the Time Warp Trio for a long time -so much so that he is buying the same stories but with the different covers just to ring the changes - we like the fact that the stories seem sound as far as historical accuracy is concerned too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sam and Company are back again 7 Mar. 2004
By james hatfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The time hopping friends are back again, this time they are 1000 years in the past in Ancient Mexico. My kids love the Time Warp Trio. Knights of the Kitchen Table was the first chapter book my 8 year read, and he was hooked.
This book is great for the reluctant readers (generally boys). Sam and company find adventure, play some sports, and have some fun with puns (as usual).
I gave this book only 4 stars because some of the names in the story may be hard to pronounce for young readers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The time warp tros adventures 15 Nov. 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Have you ever had a book that can bring you back in the past to 1000A.D? Well Fred, Sam, and Joe had one because they are the Time Warp Trio. They got there hands on this book by their uncle and ever since their life was miserable. This book is called Me Oh Maya, by Jon Scezka. It all takes place in the court yard.

One day Fred, Sam, and Joe were playing Horse on the Basketball court. When Sam was writing the score in Mayan numbers all of a sudden green mist started to gather up like fog. Before they knew it they were warping back to the year 1000A.D. When they arrived they were in a town called Chichen Itza. In Chichen Itza they had to find the book that brought them there. When they were looking they encountered a Mayan basketball court. Fred started showing the town's people how good he was in basketball. When Fred made a shot with a technique they never saw before they all went wild and they worshiped them. The king found out that they were getting worshiped so he brought them to the palace. The king tied them up to a tree to feed them to the jaguar because he thought that they were getting powerful. When they were tied up to the tree they saw black eyes. All of a sudden a boy jumped out of the bushes and untied him. The boy's name was Jun. He was one of the cheering fans when Fred made the shot. He untied them and he brought them to his house. When they got there they made a plan to get rid of the king because he was a horrible king. Jun's mom made a plan to play a basketball game with him because the mom knew that he was terrible at it. The next day it was time to play basketball. Read this book to find out what happened next.

I recommend this book to all the book lovers in the world. I can relate to this because I have two siblings and including me that makes three. We had wild adventures and we don't have to go back in to time to have those adventures. When you read this book I think that you are going to be thrilled. The fun doesn't stop when you're done reading one of their books; there is a series of these books are called the Time Warp Trio. They are easy to read so anyone can read them. When I read this book I had fun. It is funny how they get threw things like playing basketball games to rule a whole city. If I enjoyed it, I think you will enjoy it too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Insubstantial 26 Dec. 2006
By Lisa/Edkela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was entertaining. My six-year-old listened to it avidly and thought it was funny. We read it as part of our homeschool unit on the Maya people. It did present some history, but I felt that the irreverant and flippant tone of most of the book was disrespectful and unnecessary (e.g. the character named "Kakapupuhed"). The author seems to have the perspective that history is boring and needs to be made more interesting so that children will find it appealing. It was fun and it was funny, but I didn't think it was worthwhile for building his character or his understanding of history or other cultures.

Time Warp Trio

Me oh Maya

I read the Time Warp Trio: Me oh Maya. It was a good book. My favorite part was when they played basketball. My least favorite part was when they went back in time because it wasn't really that exciting. This is a great book for people who like short books. I think that the book was okay, but it could be better.
