“A historical home run!” —Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of Captain Underpants
Two kids must un-twist history after Amelia Earhart changes course in this hilarious Time Twisters chapter book by award-winning author Steve Sheinkin.
WARNING: DO NOT BELIEVE THE STORY YOU’RE ABOUT TO READ.
Well, you can believe some of it. There is some real history. But also hijinks. Time travel. And famous figures setting off on adventures that definitely never happened—till now. Time is getting twisted, and it’s up to two kids to straighten things out.
Siblings Abby and Doc have been racing through time to fix history after Abraham Lincoln, Abigail Adams, and Neil Armstrong started popping up in the wrong places, at the wrong times. When Amelia Earhart accidentally lands her plane in Ancient Greece, Abby and Doc partner with Kyniska, the first woman to win the Olympics, to get Amelia back on track to finish her first solo flight across the Atlantic.
Steve Sheinkin combines history, hilarity, and surprising twists in Amelia Earhart and the Flying Chariot. The Time Twisters series is a surefire hit with history buffs and reluctant readers alike!
In this addition to Sheinkin's effervescent series, nine-year-old protagonists Abby and Doc are exhausted from their journeys through history via cardboard box time machine. But when Abby's glasses get mixed up with Amelia Earhart's goggles, she dives back into the box to find them (plus, she really wants to meet Amelia Earhart). Crossing paths with the dauntless aviator in 1932 and learning about her famed transatlantic flight leads to an unexpected diversion: time travel to Olympia, the site of the ancient Olympics. Swaab's black-and-white art accentuates the text's humor, while Sheinkin creates a graceful blend of true history and outrageous adventure. Fans of the books will particularly welcome the appearance of the irrepressible Abraham Lincoln in this volume. Also available in this series: Abraham Lincoln, Pro Wrestler; Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean;and Neil Armstrong and Nat Love, Space Cowboys. Ages 7 10.
