WARNING: DO NOT BELIEVE THE STORY YOU'RE ABOUT TO READ. Well, you can believe some of it. There is some real history. But also hijinks. Time travel. And famous figures setting off on adventures that definitely never happened — till now. Time is getting twisted, and it's up to two kids to straighten things out.
Siblings Abby and Doc have been racing through time to fix history after Abraham Lincoln, Abigail Adams, and Neil Armstrong started popping up in the wrong places, at the wrong times. When Amelia Earhart accidentally lands her plane in Ancient Greece, Abby and Doc partner with Kyniska, the first woman to win the Olympics, to get Amelia back on track to finish her first solo flight across the Atlantic.
Steve Sheinkin combines history, hilarity, and surprising twists in Amelia Earhart and the Flying Chariot. The Time Twisters series is a surefire hit with history buffs and reluctant readers alike!
"In this addition to Sheinkin’s effervescent series, nine-year-old protagonists Abby and Doc are exhausted from their journeys through history via cardboard box time machine. But when Abby’s glasses get mixed up with Amelia Earhart’s goggles, she dives back into the box to find them (plus, she really wants to meet Amelia Earhart).... Swaab’s black-and-white art accentuates the text’s humor, while Sheinkin creates a graceful blend of true history and outrageous adventure." — Publishers Weekly
