“Joe, Sam and Fred are feeling pretty smug. Their ancient Egypt history projects are all finished, and they haven’t even considered using The Book- that magical time-travel book that has landed them in some amazing times and places, and some even more amazing trouble!
But who figured on Joe’s sister Anna and her cat Cleo getting into the act? Soon the Time Warpers are dodging crocodiles on the Nile, outwitting the evil high priest in tombs and temples, and searching for an escape route from the top-secret mummy-making chamber.
The intrepid Time Warp Trio is back, and up to hieroglyphic high jinks in the land of pyramids and Pharoahs.”
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. 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 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.
