    Yikes!! is yet another adventuere for TJ, Tuna and Herby. Tuna and Herby are trying to get back home. This time they send TJ and her classmates to an African jungle. How fun and funny. I'm sad to see the end of the series.

    "Yikes!!!" is the 6th (and I believe, final) book in the "TJ and the Time Stumblers" series by Bill Myers. Like the previous 5 books, "Yikes!!!" follows the crazy, wacky adventures of TJ and her 23rd century companions, Tuna and Herby, as they navigate junior high life with futuristic gadgets and inventions.

    In this volume, the gang spends a majority of time somewhere in the African jungle (thanks to some future transporting gizmo), and TJ learns some valuable lessons about leadership, humility, and having a servant's heart. Although I still find the books fairly obnoxious at times, I must say, this was my favorite book, as the lessons TJ learned are very applicable for the intended reader, and although her predicaments may not be typical, the internal struggles she has are very relatable. Additionally, I've mentioned in previous reviews how annoyed and bothered I was by the plethora of boyfriend/girlfriend, "he's hot," and "she's a babe" vocabulary in the books, so I was pleasantly surprised by the conclusion of this book and the series, and one final lesson TJ learns.

    For these reasons, I'm going to go ahead and give "Yikes!!!" 4 stars! :)

    Yikes! is a strange book. The story gets interrupted all the time with words in a large font or a tiny font. The story is choppy and silly. The heroine is a seventh grade girl, so maybe a junior higher would think it's a cool book. I just wonder what happened to kids loving a great, well told story. I feel like the storyline is lame, so they try to add excitement with all these crazy words and strange dialog.

    We received this book from Tyndale for free with reward points. My son began reading it immediately. I asked how he liked it and he said it was a good book and that he would like to read others in the series. That's a good review if ya ask me.

    This is a really fun series with unbelievable events and crazy time travelers. These stories are intended to teach lessons, which they do, but they are very silly, and take a roundabout route to the lessons. Switched! is number 5 of 6, and I'm glad I read them in order. The writing is simple, with sound effects tossed in. These books are great for young readers.
