    One thought on “Marco? Polo!”

    1. The Time Warp Trio is three boys from Brooklyn who since finding "The Book" have been spontaneously warping to different times and places. Once warped they must locate "The Book" in order to get back home. In the first of the series the boys are warped to the time of Marco Polo and ride with the explorer to Xanadu, the great palace of Kublai Khan. There they narrowly avoid death by Royal Astrologist to locate the book and there way back to Brooklyn. Great series to recommend to young reluctant r [...]

    2. I hadn't read any of the Time Warp Trio. I was comparing it as I read to the Tree House Mysteries and found it not as enjoyable. Tough historical setting due to the lack of description given, I thought.

    3. I've been a Time Warp Trio fan since I was a kid, and I'm excited to be collecting them again to read to my son. Unfortunately this particular installment pales in comparison to the brilliant and hilarious earlier books. It's neither as amusing nor as well-structured, though the topic is still interesting and spending time with the trio is never unpleasant.

    4. Hey guys and girls this is the kind of book that will make you want to read about Marco Polo and his adventures of what he did because he discovered a lot of things. My opinion about this book is that it made me laugh a lot and be surprised because of the beginning and the ending parts. I will also may be giving ***Spoil Alerts*** so if you don't like that I'm sorry. This book is a fiction and adventure book because they go to other places in camels and in the desert. Also when they go through t [...]

    5. The Time Warp Trio: Marco? Polo! follows three friends as they are time warped by a magical blue book into the adventures of Marco Polo. The three boys are in a quest to find the blue book, which they know will quickly send them back to modern time. Things become complicated when the Emperor of China’s astrologist starts to smell something fishy about the three boys. This texts combines humor, adventure, and a history lesson about thirteenth century Chine and the explorer Marco Polo. This book [...]

    6. This is the sixteenth book in the Time Warp Trio series by Jon Scieszka. We've been slowly working our way through the series and we really enjoy these stories. We've skipped around a bit, but it doesn't seem to matter too much.This tale takes us to the middle of a desert as the trio join Marco Polo on the Silk Road in China. Our youngest studied Marco Polo last year and we've been reading additional books about his life and travels. This is the most outrageous of the stories we've read, but it [...]

    7. Joe finds himself alone in the desert and wondering what happened to the game of Marco Polo he and his friends had been playing in the Brooklyn YMCA pool. He is rescued by none other than… Marco Polo then led on an adventure to find The Book in Kublai Khan's Xanadu. Joe, Sam, and Fred must outwit Court Astrologer Ding Dong to make it home. Luckily, their horoscopes gave them some hints and Sam’s knowledge of the Chinese zodiac seal the deal. Do you know what your zodiac sign is?

    8. This series frustrated me. It's fairly well-written, but very formulaic. The book's do play off this formula, but the character's never try to learn anything about the time-traveling magic of the book, and the end of the series just leaves me with a lot of questions. I know I'm not exactly the target audience for this series, but I think I'd have a hard time recommending this to younger readers.

    9. I loved so many things about this book--as I love the series. Picking your own chinese zodiac at the end was a treat as was each of the chapters being numbered in chinese. This one integrated a real adventure.

    10. Read it outloud to my 8 year old son. He loved it! As a huge fan of the Magic Tree House series this was a good "step-up" in terms of language and humor. Will definitely read more in the series. (He wants me to add that he gives it 5 stars)

    11. summary:Marco Polo is about learning about Marco Poloaracter Trait: Joe is funny and braveM.I.E: When joe met Marco Polo and saved the slaves from a sandstorm.I would recremend this book to anyone who likes history and science fiction.

    12. A light-hearted and easy read, with just enough nods to actual history to make it "count" in our history studies.

    13. These are great for early readers - Scieszka has a really quirky sense of humor - plus I just heard him speak and so like his writing even more now!

    14. Hilarious time-traveling with the Time Warp Trio in the typical laugh-out-loud type of writing of Jon Scieszka.

    15. This was one I read with my 10-year old, and it was OK at best. Scieszka can be a very funny guy, but this was a pretty pedestrian effort, in my opinion.
