Sam, Joe, and Fred time warp back in time to 2095. And they get on top of the Brooklyn bridge. They stumble into a Viking. Sam was trying to make an invention. They wanted to go to the frontier. Then they stumbled into a pirate. Then they bumped into there, great-granddaughters! Everybody was surprised to see Sam, Fred, and Joe. Joe tries to trick the Ugly man. Then Joe beat him. Sam and Samza were fighting about what Sam said. Then they got into rushing hour. There wasn't any electricity, and they were stuck in the 1899. Joe was tries to do a magic trick with his rope. So he checked his pockets. His rope was not there! He found a rope in the bushes. Than he tugged it then the book came out! Then they tried to figure out what the voice command was. Fred and Freddie had to play baseball. Then Sam made an invention he said it then they went back into their own time.

My favorite characters are Fred and Freddie. I like Fred because he is very funny. I like Freddie because she is cool. It reminds me of my first hit a baseball. It was funny; and I liked the book, all of the boys said funny jokes!

I recommend this book to all of my classmates because it was really funny.
