WARNING: DO NOT BELIEVE THE STORY YOU'RE ABOUT THE 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.

Or will they be the ones who need to be rescued?

Editorial 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 seriesUndefeated:"A model of research and documentation as well as of stylish writing that tells an always absorbing story." -Booklist, starred review"A gifted storyteller who never forgets the story in history. . . . Superb nonfiction that will entertain as it informs." -Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewMost Dangerous:"Easily the best study of the Vietnam War available for teen readers." -Kirkus Reviews, starred reviewThe Port Chicago 50: "Sheinkin delivers another meticulously researched WWII story." -Publishers Weekly, starred reviewBomb: "This is edge-of-the-seat material." -The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred reviewThe Notorious Benedict Arnold: "American history is brought to life in this engaging story of revolution and treason." -School Library Journal, starred review
