A laugh-out-loud tale packed with science, adventure, and a whole lot of fun for all ages! Humans have gone too far, wrecking planet Earth. We might need to find a new planet. But who could possibly help us do that? The AstroNuts! Lucky for us, back in the 1980s, NNASA (NotNASA) created four secret superpowered Animal Astronauts - AlphaWolf, SmartHawk, LaserShark, and StinkBug. They were built to be automatically launched into space to check out possible Goldilocks planets if things on Earth ever got too bad. Unlucky for us, things just got too bad. The AstroNuts' first destination, the Plant Planet, looks just right. It has oxygen, shelter, water, and no obvious intelligent life. But what if plant life has a mind of its own? And what if that mind has one very scary plan for our AstroNuts? A nonstop joyful listen for reluctant readers and fans ready to blast past Wimpy Kid. Performed by Nanette Savard, Danny Gavigan, Dawn Ursula, Tia Shearer, Chris Stinson, Terence Aselford, Richard Rohan, Colleen Delany, John Kielty, and Jenna Sharpe.Show more
Una colección de 15 cuentos clásicos infantiles, narrados a voz de Mario Iván Martínez. Tres hermanos cerditos deciden cada uno construir una casa para comenzar a vivir su vida adulta. Dependiendo de sus habilidades y sus preferencias, cada uno decide usar distintos materiales: uno utiliza paja, otro, madera y el último, ladrillos. Apenas terminan de construir sus casas cuando un lobo hambriento les echa el ojo y decide comérselos, sin contar que los cerditos son más listos de lo que parece y que no le será tan fácil hacerlos su próxima cena.Show more
The Time Warp Trio meets Marco Polo!What would happen if someone had a time-warping book he got from his uncle who was a magician, and he took it to the local YMCA pool while he played Marco? Polo! with his best friends? In the sixteenth adventure of the Time Warp Trio, it happens to Joe (and Fred and Sam). And what happens is sandstorms, desert bandits, a smelly camel, strange horoscopes, the emperor of all China, and one very famous explorer. If the explorer is Marco Polo, this must be thirteenth century China!Show more
The Time Warp Trio is staying home for once, and Joe's got a perfect way to keep The Book from getting lost. But when the guys find themselves stuck on top of the half-finished Brooklyn Bridge, they realize that Joe's foolproof Book Tracker wasn't so foolproof after all. Now the guys have to make their way through 1877 Brooklyn and find The Book before they un-invent the lightbulb, the phonograph and-oh, no!-baseball!Show more
It's the Time Warp Trio to the rescue! Only this time they are rescuing their own adventure-loving hides. Blackbeard, the meanest, ugliest pirate ever, has our accidental time travelers cornered. Can Fred, Sam, and Joe find The Book in time-or will they become shark munchies?Show more
One minute Joe, Sam, and Fred are shooting hoops in Brooklyn; the next they're on a court that is definitely not in New York, and surrounded by a bunch of players wearing feathered headdresses and not much else. And the other team is saying something about losers being the next blood sacrifices. Uh-oh. Tossed back in time to Chichén Itzá, Mexico, in the year A.D. 1000, the Time Warp Trio is at it again. But can the guys score and find The Book before the Mayan High Priest and his team force them into 'sudden death' overtime?Show more
Did you know that our word Thursday comes from the Viking god Thor . . . as in Thor's Day? Neither did the Time Warp Trio. Did you know that if you say 'Thursday' over and over again too close to a certain magic Book, you will get sucked back two thousand years to the time of the Vikings? Neither did the Time Warp Trio. Can our trusty heroes, Joe, Sam, and Fred, survive a wild ride with Leif Eriksson, match wits with his evil cousin, and get back home in one piece?Show more
Thanks to the magic of The Book, Joe, Sam, and Fred are back in the wild, wild West-and it's proving to be way too wild. They're almost stampeded by a herd of crazed cattle and nearly suffocated by foul cow-fumes! Then they meet a friendly Indian chief, but why do his warriors keep staring at their scalps? Uh-oh . . . Can the intrepid friends find The Book and escape in time?Show more
Zapped into the twenty-first century by The Book, Fred, Sam, and Joe discover that the future is worth waiting for. 3-D ads attack them on the street, and ray gun-toting robots demand their ID numbers, or else. And a meeting with their great-grandkids could knock out the old family tree at the roots! Will the trio's future mix-up wipe out their past?Show more
You probably know that Leonardo da Vinci painted the Mona Lisa. Did you know that he also invented an early version of a helicopter and a tank, and that he planned to execute the Time Warp Trio for spying on his inventions? Sam's bright idea to look for the inventor of the Book takes the guys to 15th century Italy to meet up with Leonardo. But it's going to take at least three more bright ideas, two magic tricks, and one great invention to get them out of trouble and safely back home. If not, it could be a lifetime of Italian army toilet-cleaning detail for Joe, Sam, and Fred.Show more
Wouldn't you know it, right when the trusty Time Warp Trio is about to go on stage in the school play, the script gets knocked into The Book, and Joe, Fred, and Sam come face to face with Cerberus, the mythological three-headed dog of Hades. And the drooling guard dog isn't the worst of their problems: The guys have landed smack in the middle of a feud between the gods of Ancient Greece and some really ugly monsters. To keep their odyssey from becoming a Greek tragedy, the gang needs to find The Book, and fast!Show more
One minute the guys are wrestling around in Joe's room. The next minute The Book has transported them back to ancient Rome-and face-to-face with one big ol' gladiator. Luckily, Joe, Sam, and Fred, the Time Warp Trio, have seen enough professional wrestling to make it through gladiator school-but not even a smackdown bodyslam can help them at the Colosseum. Will our trusty heroes be able to find The Book and hightail it out of there, or will the Romans turn them into mincemeat?Show more
