Joe, Sam, and Fred have conquered the summer reading list, Greek monsters, and Roman gladiators, but a haiku-writing assignment lands them in what might be their scariest adventure yet! Samurai warriors, really big swords, and three twenty-first century kids are a dangerous combination . . . unless one of the boys can figure out a way to find the book and get them back home before disaster strikes. Joe's Time Travel Haiku: So what cranks the book? What triggers the time warping? Almost anything! "Told at a quicksilver pace, the stories are furious and funny . . . . These volumes will be requested time after time." ( Booklist )
