i loved this book and with the tyndale rewards program was able to bring it to my home for my kids and home school kids for free
I've read the first 3 books in this series and they crack me up. They feature 2 goofballs from future who end up in the present day to research a teenage girl named TJ. TJ happens to be one of the dorkiest girls in school. However, "someday TJ would grow up to be a brilliant leader doing brilliant things (hard to believe, since she was still having a hard time opening her locker.)" Anyway, these 2 goofballs drive TJ crazy: her first reaction is "always to shout at them every time she wakes up in the morning to see them standing in line to use her bathroom. (Apparently even 23rd entury time travelers need to use the facilities)". All the asides in this book are equally hilarious. This book features pirates (hence the "Aaaargh!!! title). The story begins when some pirates show up with Tuna and Herby to help TJ with her Treasure Island book report. Tuna pulled out a giant swiss army knife ("the type sold at time-travel stores everywhere"). The pirates shout things like "Argh" and "bleep-bleep-bleep": "which is all pirates are allowed to scream in a pg-rated book." And it only gets better from there. One crazy shenanigan after another. Bring in the mean girl--Hesper Breakaheart--who has tons of "very, very best friends" and who is totally out to get TJ. She may even be worse than the pirates.
AAAARGH!!! is a decent book for kids. It's definitely cheesy, but addresses in wrongness & consequences of cheating. The conflict is not really resolved by the end of the book.
