Three children looking at The Book. Three children, a queen and a wizard.

When Joe receives a magical book for his birthday, he and his pals are unexpectedly hurled across time and space. They first arrive in Camelot, a land menaced by an evil knight, a terrible giant, and a fire-breathing dragon. With quick thinking and a dash of courage the newly formed “Time Warp Trio” manages to survive, but the mysterious Book soon thrusts them into further adventures – each more challenging than the last! Save the day with wit and bravery in this adaptation of stories from Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith’s Time Warp Trio series.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.

Adapted by Frances Limoncelli
Directed by Heather Currie
Based on the book series by Jon Scieszka, illustrated by Lane Smith
