Yikes!!! by Bill Myers

Book Description:  In an effort to find the last of the fuel ingredients for their time pod, 23rd-century goofballs Tuna and Herby transport themselves to Africa. Unfortunately, they also transport TJ Finkelstein and half of her 7th-grade science class, including TV star Hesper Breakahart and dreamy Chad Steel. In the jungle, the Time Stumblers’ usual mayhem jumps to a new level as Herby is adopted by a mother gorilla, Tuna is transformed into an ostrich chick, and the students are taken in by an African tribe. When Hesper tries to escape by leaping into a raging river, TJ finds that it’s time to begin showing the leadership qualities that Tuna and Herby claim she’ll have someday as a world leader. Thanks to her, everyone makes it home safely, and the Time Stumblers fuel up their time pod, leaving with laughter, tears . . . and one last zany surprise for TJ.

My Thoughts:  Summer time is here!  And that means reading fun books during the summer for our newly turned teen.  He loves books by Bill Myers!  He began reading books authored by Bill Myers when he was 8 years old.
Of course, I read these books too.  Well, they are just so much fun!
TJ and the Time Stumblers (I love that word...stumblers! )  This word suggest that they "just happened upon a discovery" and this is why my son loves this series . . . the adventure!
This time TJ and his friends are transported to the jungle.  Yikes! Every 7th grade boys dream! Without his mom, of course.  Yikes!  The escapades these kids get into is fun but then fun has a price.  Time for TJ to get it together!  
It's not just any ole adventure, but Bill Myers uses that zany humor of his 
to make this an adventure that is laugh.out.loud funny!
