Your Mother Was a Neanderthal

In this adventure of the Time Warp Trio, the boys thought they knew the secret of time travel. They got ready for their next trip but when they arrived in the Stone Age, they were not wearing anything. Joe's mom was a cavewomen. The girls and boys didn't live in the same place in the Stone Age. The Time Warp Trio helped to bring them together. The boys were chased by all kinds of things. There was an earthquake and it blew a rock over the door of the cave and all the cave people were locked in. The boys helped move the rock and were rewarded with the very first picture of the Magic Book on the wall.

I liked this book because it was funny. One example was when Joe said, ?You call that a detail.? My favorite part was when the girls? hair puffed up because they were trying to brush their hair. I liked all the characters because they were funny. I especially liked how they used their expressions.

I recommend this book for children ages eight to twelve.
