TJ learns the importance of speaking and thinking well of people even when they are difficult, thanks to the Thought Broadcaster Pen, which exposes the thoughts of everyone it hits. As usual, Tuna and Herby's attempts to fix the pen only make things worse-now all of TJ's thoughts become reality. As she fights not to return meanness to others (and to clean up the disasters her thoughts cause, like turning whiny TV star Hesper Breakahart into a giant baby), TJ learns from her dad a little more about how her mother handled things: she kept reminding herself that each of us is God's creation. And no matter how mean people may be, we all need to be loved.

TJ still has to put up with the time travelers, Tuna and Herby who are still following her around and trying to help when instead they are making her life miserable and crazy. TJ did manage to learn one very valuable lesson in the midst of the chaos and that is to always try to think the best about someone. This book series is perfect for elementary age children and will provide them with a life lesson and a few laughs.
HomeSchool Mom of 4The Hot Dry DesertAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Equal Parts Hilarity and EncouragementAugust 26, 2014HomeSchool Mom of 4The Hot Dry DesertAge: 25-34Gender: femaleI found this book both hilarious and encouraging. It has a great message that becomes clear at the end of the book. In this one, TJ ends up accidentally being cast in a TV show... with none other than her little arch nemesis and craziness ensues (as in every book I've read so far in this unpredictable series). The book is very fast-paced, the main character is just the kind of girl I could have related to in middle and high school, and I "totally dig" the storyline. Definitely recommend... and I'm a very picky mom when it comes to what I allow my kids to read. However, YOU know your kid. Read the book first (it takes about an hour) and then decide if it's right for them.

I have to say it is quite interesting. I had a hard time following at first, but once I caught on, it was funny. TJ learns a great lesson of that everyone is different and God loves everyone.
4 1/2 stars.
thecraftyhomeAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5June 2, 2014thecraftyhomeAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 2Meets Expectations: 1OOPS! is another wacky instalment in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series by Bill Myers. What would happen if your thoughts became reality? I mean literally. Well TJ is about to find out when the Time Stumblers thought broadcaster goes a little haywire and her thoughts become real life. She learns a valuable lesson in controlling her thoughts and what she says about people. This is a great lesson in remembering that we are all God's creation and deserve to be loved and that usually the mean kids are the ones who are the most insecure and need friends. Once again, I'm not super impressed with these books but if you are looking for some light hearted fiction that teaches good values for your middle schooler then they would be great.
bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Oops!August 16, 2013bookwormPennsylvaniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4In Oops, the third Time Stumblers book, TJ learns the value about always thinking well of others and to only speak words that will not put someone down. The book starts out with TJ, Tuna, and Herby running away from a twenty-third century bully in the form of an elephant. The bully happens to be enemies of Tuna and Herby and helps to make TJ's life weirder than it already was. The elephant chases them into the school auditorium where movie star, Hesper, is having auditions for a role on her television show. Against all odds, TJ is chosen to play the part and that is where the real trouble begins. Tuna and Herby have made some moderations to their thought broadcaster pen, which has caused all sorts of havoc. Tuna and Herby become birds, the pen allows TJ to turn people/things into what she thinks of them, and the pen becomes broken leaving the thought broadcasting powers that TJ has as permanent. While on the set, TJ loses her temper causing Hesper, the director, set crew, and two other people to turn into creatures of TJ's thoughts. With Tuna and Herby to help, TJ finds a way to turn everyone back to normal and in the process, she learns the value of always thinking good thoughts of people and the power that bad thoughts can have on people.
