REVIEW: Time Warp Trio #4: Your Mother Was a Neanderthal

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars, Genre: Fiction/Children, Pages: 80, Level: Easy

Book Description:

“Some people will do anything to get out of doing their homework…

The Time Warp Trio is back- and they’re going back in time, all the way to the Stone Age, where there aren’t any math problems. But there are plenty of other problems to keep Sam, Joe, and Fred on their toes, including a tribe of hostile cavewomen, a hungry looking saber-toothed tiger, a bone rattling earthquake, and a woolly mammoth who wants to turn them into toe jam. But worst of all, how can The Book get them back home again when writing hasn’t even been invented yet?”

Once again, the boys are sent back in time; this time, they travel to the Stone Age. They meet up with some cave people and the matriarch looks strikingly like Joe’s mother. How did that happen? The boys must battle a dinosaur- what? A dinosaur? That doesn’t sound right. Well they have to battle all sorts of things. You are just going to have to read the book to find out what a dinosaur was doing alongside cavemen and how the boys are going to get back to their own time long without The Book since books there are no books in the Stone Age. Or are there?

Another quick and entertaining read in The Time Warp Trio series. Your Mother Was a Neanderthal was not my favorite so far, but it was still mildly entertaining and a good, quick, before bedtime read. Boys will likely enjoy it and if you have a daughter like mine, they will enjoy it as well because gross is funny to kids. While I would not sit down and read this book for myself, it is a good book for read aloud sessions.
