Grade 2–5—Fred, Joe, and Sam are back in a new version of Scieszka and Lane Smith's "Time Warp Trio." This adaptation from the television series has not lost any of the appeal of the original: the story is fast paced and amusing. The boys are pondering the important question of what to eat when that familiar green mist begins to engulf them-just as a Mongolian barbecue takeout menu floats to the ground. And so they end up in the middle of a sheep herd in 13th-century Mongolia. One thing leads to another, and they are rescued from a tribal war by none other than the young Genghis Khan, Temujin (or T.J. for short). The turmoil is not over, since prince T.J. has a rival in Tarkutai, who has The Book. Joe, Fred, and Sam assist T.J. and recover it, but not before they dress as girls to infiltrate the enemy's camp. The boys make it back to Brooklyn in one piece, albeit still hungry. This installment in the series has new black-and-white illustrations (cleaner design, but not the same as Lane Smith's quirky art). Purchase for fans of the Trio and for kids looking for a fast-paced action story with lots of laughs.—Alison Grant, Ruby S. Thomas Elementary School, Las Vegas, NV
