TIME TWISTERS: BOOKS 1 & 2 Abraham Lincoln, Pro Wrestler; Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean

by | Read by Marc Thompson

Children Ages 10+ • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Steve Sheinkin's meticulous research and cinematic writing are highlighted in the engaging, humorous Time Twisters series. In these debut stories, listeners meet siblings Abby and Doc, who are bored with history. So is Abraham Lincoln, who turns from the presidency to pro wrestling, and Abigail Adams, who escapes White House chores by joining a crew of Caribbean pirates. Both episodes are narrated by Marc Thompson, who transforms history into a rousing romp with his energetic reading. His animated characterizations help earlier times reach present-day listeners--whether through the menace of pirates or the propriety of Abigail Adams. Sound effects add to the dramatization, though occasionally the background soundscapes distract. The author's afterword "untwists" the stories's events, pointing out their facts.
