While its accessibility makes it a good choice for a reluctant reader, I don't recommend it as part of a permanent home library. Jul 03, Bernadette rated it it was amazing Shelves: What a fun book! It would be a fun wrap-up read aloud to our unit. Students will be able to relate to the characters and their fun adventure.
And it will be very motivating to listen to a story in which the setting and characters are all about something we have studied. This is a fun book to incorporate into the study of history. A quick read with a lot of action also lends itself to a dramatization of the story.
Tut, Tut (Time Warp Trio, book 6) by Jon Scieszka
We had been steadily working our way through the Time Warp Trio series and then we somehow took a break. I'm not sure why. I guess it's just a matter of too many books and not enough time to read them all. In any case, after a ten-month hiatus, I thought it was high-time that we start in again. I really missed this series. The stories are so silly and fun, but a little educational too.
And I love that Joe's little sister Anna joins them on this trip. This is a good book about ancient Egypt and we really enjoyed reading it together. Aug 26, Jessica rated it really liked it. I really enjoy these books because they are entertaining, adventurous and sneak in factual information. May 24, Maximilian Lee rated it really liked it.
I liked this book because I like ancient stuff. I also liked this book because I like secret stuff. Jun 07, Cadie Sommer rated it really liked it. My students and I love these silly fast reads. Jan 13, Naomi rated it it was ok. I thought it was not very detailed and not super interesting. Still, an okay book though. Oct 21, Skylar Burris rated it it was ok Shelves: Jon Scieszka's series was on a list of books for my son to read for a school library program, so we gave it a try. He's in second grade and just reading on grade level, so I had to read most of the book to him.
It's written on a 3. My son was not overly interested in it, but my 4th grade daughter was, probably because she's been reading Rick Riordan's Egyptian mythology series and the gods get a mention here as well. The Time Jon Scieszka's series was on a list of books for my son to read for a school library program, so we gave it a try. I don't know which came first, but one must be a rip off of the other. Overall, I didn't think much of the book. It was very out-of-a-box formulaic, as too much children's literature is these days, and even so the loose ends weren't adequately tied up.
That is, the ending was rather abrupt, and the Trio surprisingly did little to foil any plots. The book read like a series of small, predictable adventures with overly convenient resolutions. I would not read more of this series for my son, and he would resist me if I did. Dec 18, Trace rated it liked it Shelves: This book is very light-hearted, more than a little silly This is the first book that we read in this series, it was recommended as extra-curricular reading for Story of the World a history curriculum.
I would have loved it to be just a wee bit meatier and the silliness dialed down a bit more.. BUT I have to admit that I'm not a fan of silliness - and This book is very light-hearted, more than a little silly I'm just the parent.. He would't let me put it down, so we had to read the entire book in one night which was easy to do. He remembered learning about Hatshepsut, for example. So perhaps MY expectations as a stodgy ol' parent are a bit too high for a children's book I liked it and will probably read more of them in the future to supplement our history curriculum Mar 17, Christina rated it liked it Shelves: The boys amaze Thutmose with tennis shoes, basketball and skiing.
But they make an enemy of the greedy priest, Hatsnat. With Hatsnat scheming against them and The Book lost as usual, the time travelers must use their 'magical' powers to keep them in the good graces o In the sixth installment of the Time Warp Trio, Joe, Fred, Sam and Joe's sister Anna, along with her cat Cleo, find themselves in ancient Egypt during the time of Hatshepsut and her son Thutmose III, who is the same age as the Trio.
With Hatsnat scheming against them and The Book lost as usual, the time travelers must use their 'magical' powers to keep them in the good graces of the rulers until they find a way back home. As with the other books in the series, Tut Tut is a quick read and entertaining. There is no shortage of booger jokes due to the priest's name- Hatsnat. And it was a fun twist to have Joe's sister along for the ride; she turns out to be intelligent and entertaining. Aug 11, SaraLaLa rated it really liked it. I picked up this book and a few others in the series looking for good supplemental readings for my students as we cover these topics in Social Studies.
I didn't notice that the target audience is ages , making this book too juvenile for even my 6th graders. Some kids my still enjoy it; especially my struggling readers. While in their adventure, the reader catches a glimpse of clothing worn, food eaten, religion, geography, and more. This is far easier to read than our text book. Jan 09, Patricia Bell rated it really liked it. The little professor's favorite quote: We love studying about ancient civilizations and countries in general. This book, along with visits to the Field Museum in Chicago, has The little professor's favorite quote: This book, along with visits to the Field Museum in Chicago, has definitely increased the little professor's curiosity about what life was like in ancient Egypt.
Joe's little sister Anna bets the boys that there was a female pharaoh. However, the chief priest Hatsnat is secretly trying to take control and Joe, Fred, and Sam just happen to hear his plan. This is a twelve mini-section book 74 pages. The book is based on a book Sam was given by his uncle Joe, that he believed to be magical.
Every time his sister Anna open the book they were drawn in like a time machine into ancient Egypt. Every adventure lead to losing and finding Sam's sister, her cat cleo, and the book and finding them by outsmarting eqyptians. Throughout the book interesting vocabulary comes up, such as inundation, shaduf, and hatshepsut. In the back of the book there is a se This is a twelve mini-section book 74 pages. In the back of the book there is a seven word quiz.

The Kid carried this book around with her for days as we traveled over the Summer. Jan 11, Josie rated it really liked it. This was a fun book of pharaohs, three fun time-traveling boys, and some bad guys.

Frequently bought together
This one was one of my favorite books because it's a very interesting adventure book. I like reading adventure books. He accuses them of being robbers and decides to have their heads chopped off when they are interrupted by Thutmose III. Thutmose befriends the Trio and decides to take them to the palace to see his Aunt Hatshepsut. Little does the gang realize that their troubles are far from over, and apart from retrieving the book, they also have to find Anna and her cat Cleo this time.
I had mixed feelings about this book, because although I liked all the adventures that the Trio went on in this book, such as Sam almost being caught by crocodiles, the Trio finding Anna, or being Mummified alive, I thought this book ended really abruptly because they didn't get a chance to meet Thutmose or Hatshepsut in the end to tell them about Hatsnat. However, judging by the events that really happened, I guess this was a plausible ending for the author to come to.
Apart from that, I did enjoy reading this book because it had a lot of twists and turns, with beautiful illustrations from Lane Smith. Overall, for me, this is a memorable Time Warp Trio book because of their eerie escape in the end. Candy caramels are made with nutritious ingredients mixed with equal parts sugar. They are tasty, enjoyable, and have virtually no nutritional value.

They are very like this pleasantly written, irreverent and forgettable time-travel story, part of a longer series by the same author. In Tut Tut, three friends are accidentally whisked into the time of ancient Egypt by a pesky younger sister, who is befriended by the goddess Isis. They, in turn, impress the boy-pharaoh with their sneakers and basketball skills, with a little additional help from scientific tricks that they pass off as magic.
Amidst the lighthearted, fast-moving plot the author mixes in quite a bit of trivia about ancient Egyptian culture, with quite a bit of juvenile humor but without any real sense of the cultural gravity of that great society. This is a fairly unobjectionable library read. While its accessibility makes it a good choice for a reluctant reader, I don't recommend it as part of a permanent home library. See all 22 reviews.
