Publisher's Description

This six-book series centers around two 23rd century goofballs, Tuna and Herby, who travel back in time to study TJ Finkelstein for their history project. TJ will someday become a great leader who demonstrates honesty, integrity, thoughtfulness, self-sacrifice, respect for others—all traits she hones and grasps through her adventures in this series. Unfortunately, Tuna and Herby get stuck in TJ’s time (modern day), so she has to deal with their schemes while juggling the normal issues of a seventh grader who has moved to a new city, is trying to fit in, and is coping with her mother’s death and her family’s new life.
In New Kid Catastrophes, TJ accidentally makes an enemy of Hesper Breakahart, the superstar who attends their school. And Tuna and Herby’s attempts to help just lead to one disaster after another. In the end, TJ is still very unpopular, but she learns the value of looking past appearances and gains a few friends—and the attention of the most popular boy in school.

Just imagine being a 21st century 7th grade girl moving into a totally new area, facing the horrors of an unknown school filled with who knows what kind of rich and snobbish kids, and, to top it all off, having to cope with two boys from the 23rd century! In New Kid Catastrophes, TJ has to do it all while at the same time figuring out if she is a kind and considerate person (even though almost everybody around her tends to be anything but K & C). Aghhhh! TJ has to cope with daily Physical Embarrassment (gym to the rest of us), a movie starlet/hyped on herself classmate, a Science Fair with all the added attraction of 23rd century goof-ups, and her little sister. Will TJ ever figure out who the really nice people are? Will she be given the breathing space to do it?

Bill Myers' youth books are becoming notorious (oops! should have said noticed). He is one of those responsible for McGee and Me. His inimitable style -- filled with hilariously weird jokes, off-beat sound effects, and a lot of understanding for the youth of today -- is faintly reminiscent of what P.G. Wodehouse wrote in an earlier generation. The reader does not have to dig very far to find the underlying lessons amidst this merry mayhem. Those good basic Christian living lessons slide in effortlessly with the chortles and guffaws, and stay put in the readers mind. Both public and Christian schools will find use for New Kid Catastrophes. Its interest holding capacities encourage continued silent reading. With all its sound effects, it also works really well read aloud. – Donna Eggett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    I decided to check out the e-book version of this series for my kiddos before purchasing paperback versions... and I loved them! I was laughing out loud and totally impressed with the wittiness of the series (not something I've seen much in this age group). I'm not sure about the reviewer who thought this book wouldn't appeal to middle schoolers---I'm a widely-read 35 year old and I got some GREAT entertainment value out of this book! The main character is cute, has a crush like any other middle schooler, faces problems like other kids her age (and then some--I mean who hangs out with time travelers?!), and she's always thinking and saying hilarious and witty things that make me giggle. The boy characters in this book are a couple of silly nuts. I loved the book from the start and knew I had to purchase the entire paperback series for my kids. I really, really like that this book is so entertaining and I can't wait to read the rest of the series... not to mention give them to my kids!

    New Kid Catastrophes is hilarious. I literally laughed out loud during the lunch table scene. Poor TJ! This book completely silly and wacky. But, oh so fun.

    5 stars.

    TJ has just moved to California and is trying to get adjusted to her surroundings and new school which is easier said then done. Two time travelers have arrived and won't leave her alone. They are trying to help her learn to look past people's outward appearance but their help isn't always appreciated.

    New Kid Catastrophes 1, TJ and the Time Stumblers, is adorable.

    This goof-troop of time-traveling kids kept me engaged and amused. Kids will easily relate to these silly, charming, magical characters (TJ, Tuna, and Herby) and the dilemmas they face (being the new kid/outsider.) I do have to say though—I feel this book should be geared toward grade school readers rather than teens.

    Everything about this book is original. I, an adult, enjoyed this first Time Stumblers tale and recommend it for young readers. A good, clean, fun, engaging read.

    Changing schools in middle school or junior high can be scary, when 13-year-old TJ Finkelstein transfers from Missouri to Malibu Junior High, everything that can go wrong, does. As two teenage time travelers, Herby and Tuna, try to intervene, TJ immediately alienates the most popular girl in the school, movie star, Hesper Breakaheart, while resisting the friendship of the class geek. Her attraction to the class smoot also gets her into one mess after another. And her time traveling guardians, Herby and Tuna's continual bungling—accidentally changing people into weird objects and animals—goes from complicated to outrageous, placing TJ into a hole she may never escape.

    The author uses slapstick humor, hyperbole and two teenage time travelers to help TJ through the transition and she learns a lesson about favoritism along the way. Although primarily aimed at middle school girls this book should also appeal to boys with nonstop action and great humor.
