(To begin, let me say that I'm over a decade out of the target audience age range, so that definitely affects my opinion of the book.)

"Oops!" is the third book in a "juvenile" series about a modern-day junior-high student, T.J., and her from-the-future pals, Herby and Tuna. This book chronicles her adventures over the course of a crazy, action-packed week as she deals with one catastrophe after another resulting from the chaos of having two 23rd century companions and all of their sci-fi gadgets
TJ Finkelstein would love to have a normal life. You know one where all of the school's thoughts aren't broadcast via their cell phones for everyone to hear. One where she's not being chased by an African elephant in the school auditorium. One where TV star Hesper Breakahart isn't turned into a giant baby. One where her 23rd century time traveling helpers, Tuna and Herby, aren't making matters worse. But still, there is a lesson to be learned here. One that includes being kind to others.Still it ...more

I read it in one breath. TJ life isn’t sweet….her mom is in heaven because of the cancer, her dad moved to a new place and working all day long, her youngest sister Violet is everything TJ wasn’t born with: smart, beautiful and perfect, but the life is even harder, especially when two boys from the future, Tuna and Herby, always mess her day up. She wanted to fit in a new school ground. Unsuccessful, because you-know-who made it impossible. To make her life even more risky and havoc, those futur ...more
OOPS! 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 ...more
This is a fun book that takes into the mind of a young adult. I enjoy these types of book because they are fun while portraying a lesson. This book adds a lot of color with BOLD words and exaggerated dialogue, but in a good way. This is the first book I've read in this series but now I want to go back and read the first book. I liked how TJ's thoughts became reality and it was rather amusing. The book jumped around a lot which made it hard to follow a couple times but I look forward to reading t ...more

For this review, I had my amazing kid brother Nick read the book. This review will be mostly in his words, so bear with me.

Before we start, let's allow him to introduce himself.

Hi! My name's Nick, and I'm ten. I'm in fifth grade and I'm working on a book review with my sister, Emily Rachelle. You might know her. I like to read mysteries... I like to read almost any story - as long as it's not romance. I don't like romance! I am a big lover of candy. (Emily's note: that's an understatement.) I do

TJ and the Time Stumblers #3
By Bill Myers

Oops! is perhaps the funniest yet. Tuna and Herby are still 2 centuries out of place, but they are consistent in bringing more helpful trouble into TJ's life. This time TJ and time-traveling two-some are being chased through the school by an African elephant with a British accent. And they are about to crash an audition for Hesper Breakahart's soon to be cast little sister!

When something causes TJ to doubt Tuna and Herby (which understandable) they d
In 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 tele ...more

The time travelers stumble from one adventure to another, from being chased down the aisle of the theater by an elephant to playing basketball to morphing into a goldfish. They have a thought producing pen that broadcasts people’s thoughts. There were those who talked too much, who thought only about themselves, or whose thoughts turned into reality. Weird things happened. It was not only funny, but it teaches a great lesson in dealing with others.
Good for a great time!

T.J. and her invisable 23rd Century friends, Tuna and Herby, are back in another rip-roaring hilarious adventure. T.J. struggles with thinking good thoughts about others, so when Tuna and Herby accidently make it so that everyone can hear each other's thoughts, you can only guess what will happen next...

These books are totally growing on me, which each book I have become more and more invested in the characters, and the hijinks only get funnier! I love how Mr. Myers writes
Once again Tuna and Herby, two 23rd century time travelers bumble around, creating havoc wherever they and TJ go. Talking elephants, super large babies, cat/birds, flying pizzas and more in this book! But the real heart of the book comes when TJ says, “I also learned to always try to think best about others because… God created everyone…and everyone deserves to be loved”. Crazy, zany book for preteens!

Over the top.

This book is so over the top - beyond what happened previously. Not that the book doesn't make good points about valuable lessons, but maybe it would be good for TJ to have to live with the consequences of her actions instead of getting a do-over thanks to 23rd century technology. Of course, that would make for a really awkward life, in this instance.
Oops! is the first book I have read of the TJ and Time Stumblers. 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.
This is a pretty interesting book: it's not a graphic novel, but the words are designed as graphics. Big letters emphasize screams, etc. Interesting story, too. A bunch of kids travel through time on an accidental mission. It reminds me of my Choose Your Own Adventure days.

My only thing about it is that I started reading page one and couldn't shake off the feeling that I missed half the book. It just started in the middle of everything and didn't give me any context. (In fairness, I think this

Oops is the third book in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series. 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.
This was better than the first one I read but I still had some problems with the story. I'm starting to care more about TJ and her school struggles. And though the moral of the story was to speak kindness toward others, even those you don't like, I was annoyed by the author's stereotyping of people who live in Malibu. Maybe it was meant to be funny. Just okay in my book.
Good and funny. Had a great moral lesson about why should not only speak kindly of others but also think kindly. The only thing I would have liked more of is more development of the characters (but this was still good) and a discussion guide would have been a plus.

In exchange for an honest review, I received this book for free from the Tyndale Blogging Network.
Oops! the third book in the TJ and the Time Stumblers series brings more of TJs side splitting antics. Definitely a must read for those who have read the first two books. Bill Myers has out done himself once again.
This reading experience was definitely not one of the highlights of my life. Come read my full review.

Review of "Oops!"
3rd Book in the Tj and The Time Stumblers series. Not bad but way overly done at least for me. But for some young kids they might like it.

I didn't love it but it is the first book my 12 yr has finished without being forced.
Thank you, Bill Meyers!

Bill Myers was born into a Christian home, and although as a child he became bored with Christianity, he decided at the University of Washington quote, to "make God my boss." Ironically, at the University his worst subject was writing. He claims to have prayed, and said that he would be able to do anything for God, except write. Even so, he has become a prominent Christian writer, and has a large ...more
