Reviews

"A historical home run!" --Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of Captain Underpants

"A dash of history. A scoop of fun. Give this book to hungry readers everywhere!" --Jennifer L. Holm, New York Times-bestselling author of The Fourteenth Goldfish

"Imagine what the world would be like if Steve Sheinkin had decided to become a NASCAR driver instead of one of the finest history writers I know of. Or what if Neil Swaab chose to be a pastry chef instead of becoming one of the most clever cartoonists alive? Well, those guys might be happy, but it would be a very dull world indeed because we wouldn't have the terrific "Time Twisters" series for our reading pleasure. If you want to have fun while simultaneously learning some truly valuable lessons about history, then you absolutely MUST read these books." --Nick Bruel, New York Times-bestselling author of the Bad Kitty series
