Product Description

Luke is a hero in any time and dimension!

When Luke investigates an eerie blue glow in the woods behind his house, he doesn''t know what he''ll find there. But a scientist, a robot Abraham Lincoln riding a friendly dinosaur, and a sassy ghost were the last things he could have imagined stumbling upon. Now as Luke and his new companions are pursued by a bickering trio of bumbling henchmen who are after the strange device locked to his arm, he''s forced on a crazy, headlong adventure in a parallel dimension! Will he find his courage in time to save the day and get home or will he be trapped in a weird alternate reality forever?

TIME SHIFTERS is excellent. A terrific mix of hilarious, heartbreak, adventure, and hope. Grine does an amazing job of establishing characters and relationships quickly without feeling rushed. his artwork complements his writing perfectly; early panels of brothers Kyle and Luke capture the great balance of teasing and encouragement they give each other. Their relationship is sweet without being sacherine. When tragedy strikes, wordless panels hit like a punch to the chest. Dialogue rolls easily, and Grine does a terrific job of finding each characters voice (even with the Dinosaur type creature Zinc, who doesn''t utter a word, but can be terrifying, loyal, and very funny). I have a soft spot for the evil henchmen Vampire Napoleon; just writing his name makes me chuckle.
I enjoyed this immensely with my 8 year old son. The storyline is at times heartbreaking but still very satisfying. I would love to see this series continue, but it will be difficult for Grine to keep up with the quality he has established here if he does.

Great book for kids - but a grown-up like me enjoyed the excellent art, story, and characters too! The story is well grounded in the real world, as the main character experiences a family tragedy - then befriends a group of time traveling adventurers, and journeys through bizarre worlds inhabited by wonderfully imaginative characters. This is where the author/creator really shines: the creatures that inhabit these worlds are extraordinary - on par with the sort of beings that inhabit the Star Wars universe, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc - only drawn in their own unique style. I really can''t describe it here - you just have to see them for yourself.

After I read his work on the first Animorphs graphic novel I had to check out his other projects and this book had so many fun characters and an exciting and wild ride with a lot of heart. I even bought one for my nephew so we each have a copy. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Can''t wait to read it over and over again.

Rave Review from Kid

My 10 year old just finished the book & came to tell me "That was one of the BEST books!." There were complex themes for him to think through that really sparked his imagination.

I certainly have a very different take on this book from the first two Amazon reviewers. The graphic novel section in my library is widely used by all students on my 4th-5th grade campus, no matter the gender, race, or academic ability so I am ever on the lookout for books in this genre that will entertain and possibly make my patrons think about what they are reading. This particular book might entertain some, but I found its delivery very awkward and the storyline difficult to follow as the dialogue jumped from the good guys to the bad guys. Sad, too, because the first section with the two brothers taking a short cut through the woods and behaving in a classic love-hate way with family tragedy following had me anticipating the rest of the book. And I was completely engaged until the time shifting began and the plot became confusing and the characters downright ridiculous. I will not be buying this one for my students.
