Sam, Fred, and Joe--the Time Warp Trio--find themselves face-to-beak getting a giant, 266-pound chicken. As the chicken begins to chase them, the boys realize with horror that they are smack-dab in the middle of Daniel Pinkwater's The Hoboken Chicken Emergency! who, unfortunately, looks hungry. How did they get there? Fred accidentally stuck the school's summer reading list in between the pages of"The Book"--a time-warping, green-mist-expelling book that triggers time travel in all of Jon Scieszka's well-loved Time Warp Trio action-adventures.
In Summer Reading Is Killing Me! , illustrated by innovative artist Lane Smith, the boys find themselves trapped inside a dreadfully skewed literary planet exactly where Joe, the narrator, says"I saw Homer Price becoming carried by the Headless Horseman. (Ages 8 and older) --Karin Snelson Dracula was dragging Winnie the Pooh in a headlock. And for teachers, parents, and librarians who are deeply enmeshed in kid-erature--it's purely delicious."Whether or not young readers register every literary allusion is inconsequential--Summer Reading Is Killing Me! might be a rollicking, sarcastic, ultraweird, suspenseful adventure that kids will like regardless."It becomes the boys' charge to find"The Book"and yank the summer reading list out of it before children's literature is destroyed forever as the"bad"characters knock off the"good"characters and take over the stories. We made our way by way of a crowd of Robinson Crusoe, a blue moose, Julie with some wolves, a snowman, a plain and tall lady named Sarah, a kid with a hatchet, too as a very confused-looking Robin Hood helping Eeyore reattach his tail. Mr. Twit was breaking Harold's Purple Crayon. The literary references accelerate to a breakneck pace:"We stepped more than an extremely hungry caterpillar consuming his way via a dictionary.
