Product Description:

#2 in the Time Twisters series. Abigail Adams doesn’t want to be known only for being the first First Lady to live in the White House and for hanging laundry in the East Room, so she jumps back in time to become a pirate.

Publisher Description:

Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean, is a chapter book in the Time Twisters series by award-winning author Steve Sheinkin about what happens when a famous First Lady tires of life in the White House.

WARNING: DO NOT BELIEVE THE STORY YOU'RE ABOUT TO READ.

Well, you can believe some of it. There is some real history. But also hijinks. Time travel. And famous figures setting off on adventures that definitely never happened--till now. Time is getting twisted, and it's up to two kids to straighten things out.

Abraham Lincoln may have returned to history books, but other historical figures saw what he did--and now they know they can escape from their times, too. When Abigail Adams decides there's more to life than doing chores in the White House, she joins a crew of Caribbean pirates! Can siblings Abby and Doc set history straight? Or will they be the ones who need to be rescued?

This title has Common Core Connections.

Category Description for Time Twisters:

History is boring! Or that’s what the kids in Ms. Maybee’s class think. Abby and Doc groan along with the rest of the class when it’s time to get out the history books, until Abraham Lincoln pays them a visit and warns them that he’s quitting unless they change their minds about history. Abby and Doc try to find a way to show their classmates that history isn’t boring, and Lincoln tries his hand at professional wrestling. Now other important people in history have seen that they can travel in time and try something new. What if Abigail Adams wants to be a pirate? Will Abby and Doc be able to get time straightened out?

This fun history series is comparable to The Magic Tree House, and is sure to get kids excited about history. These stories are historical fiction with a twist, as historical figures visit other time periods while their own struggles in their absence. The books include real history facts, and a section at the back of the book explains the details of the story that are historically accurate. This series is great for young readers because the stories flow smoothly and quickly, with engaging illustrations that interact with the narration. Each book is 176 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel E.
