Will this be the Time Warp Trio's last stand? Hi-yo Trio, away! Thanks to the magic of "The Book, ," Joe, Sam, and Fred are back in the wild, wild West - and it's proving to be way too wild. First they're cowboys, being poinsoned by trail chow, stampeded by a herd of crazed cattle, and suffocated by foul cow-fumes. Maybe they'll be better off with the Indians. The chief seems to like them - but why do his warriors keep staring at their scalps? Time is running out. Will the intrepid friends find "The Book" in time to escape?

Review: The Good, the Bad, and the Goofy (Time Warp Trio #3)

User Review  - Veronica Boeve - Goodreads

Again, not at good as the first book in the series, Knights of the Kitchen Table. In this one, the trio travel to the Wild West and nearly get scalped by a tribe of revenge-seeking Native americans and almost come face-to-face with Colonel Custer on the battlefield in 1868. Read full review

About the author (1992)

Multiple award-winning author Jon Scieszka grew up in Flint, Michigan, the second oldest and the nicest of six boys. Jon went to school at Culver Military Academy in Indiana where he was a Lieutenant; Albion College in Michigan where he studied to be a doctor; and Columbia University in New York, where he received an M.F.A. in fiction. He taught elementary school in New York for ten years in a variety of positions. He is the author of many boks for children including the New York Times Best Illustrated Book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales (illustrated by Lane Smith), the Caldecott Honor book The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (illustrated by Lane Smith), and Math Curse (illustrated by Lane Smith).  In addition to his work as an author, Jon also runs a web-based literacy program called “Guys Read” that is designed to encourage boys, particularly reluctant readers, to get involved with books. In 2008, Jon was named the country’s first National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, a joint effort of the Library of Congress and the Children’s Book Council. During his two-year role as Ambassador, he acted as a spokesperson for children’s literature, speaking to groups of parents, teachers, and children to encourage the importance of reading.
