Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean (Time Twisters #2)


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?


“Mixing history, humor, and cartoon illustrations, Sheinkin’s new series for young readers blends the appeal of Scieszka’s Time Warp Trio, Osborne’s Magic Tree House, and Kinney’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.”


“By the end, readers will have learned quite a bit of history along with the protagonists, without being bored at all [in this] silly story.”

Kirkus Reviews

“A historical home run!”

—Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of Captain Underpants

“Imagine what the world would be like if Steve Sheinkin had decided to become a NASCAR driver instead of one of the finest history writers I know of. Or what if Neil Swaab chose to be a pastry chef instead of becoming one of the most clever cartoonists alive? Well, those guys might be happy, but it would be a very dull world indeed because we wouldn’t have the terrific “Mixed Up History” series for our reading pleasure. If you want to have fun while simultaneously learning some truly valuable lessons about history, then you absolutely MUST read these books.”

—Nick Bruel, New York Times–bestselling author of the Bad Kitty series

“A dash of history. A scoop of fun. Give this book to hungry readers everywhere!”

—Jennifer L. Holm, New York Times–bestselling author of The Fourteenth Goldfish
