About the Book
In an effort to find the last of the fuel ingredients for their time pod, 23rd-century goofballs Tuna and Herby transport themselves to Africa. Unfortunately, they also transport TJ Finkelstein and half of her 7th-grade science class, including TV star Hesper Breakahart and dreamy Chad Steel. In the jungle, the Time Stumblers' usual mayhem jumps to a new level as Herby is adopted by a mother gorilla, Tuna is transformed into an ostrich chick, and the students are taken in by an African tribe. When Hesper tries to escape by leaping into a raging river, TJ finds that it's time to begin showing the leadership qualities that Tuna and Herby claim she'll have someday as a world leader. Thanks to her, everyone makes it home safely, and the Time Stumblers fuel up their time pod, leaving with laughter, tears . . . and one last zany surprise for TJ. (Goodreads)
What a fun book that takes you to Africa! TJ thinks she is just going on another science field trip when her friends from the 23rd century show up. Of course Hesper Breakahart happens to be in the class and so very annoying to read about. Her character adds a point to the book but sometimes I think the author makes her too annoying. They end up in the jungle of Africa and encounter all it's dangers, including animals.
Hesper drives everyone crazy but in this book TJ learns to be a real leader even with annoying people.
I really enjoyed this book in the Time Stumblers Series!
Young adults (or older!) will enjoy!
