Book Details

Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean, is a chapter book in the Time Twisters series by award-winning author Steve Sheinkin about what happens when a famous First Lady tires of life in the White House. Also check out Abraham Lincoln, Pro Wrestler!

WARNING: DO NOT BELIEVE THE STORY YOU’RE ABOUT TO READ.

Well, you can believe some of it. There is some real history. But also hijinks. Time travel. And famous figures setting off on adventures that definitely never happened—till now. Time is getting twisted, and it’s up to two kids to straighten things out.

Abraham Lincoln may have returned to history books, but other historical figures saw what he did—and now they know they can escape from their times, too. When Abigail Adams decides there’s more to life than doing chores in the White House, she joins a crew of Caribbean pirates! Can siblings Abby and Doc set history straight? Or will they be the ones who need to be rescued?

This title has Common Core Connections.

Reading Guide

In The News

“A historical home run!” —Dav Pilkey, bestselling author of Captain Underpants

“A dash of history. A scoop of fun. Give this book to hungry readers everywhere!” —Jennifer L. Holm, New York Times–bestselling author of The Fourteenth Goldfish

“Imagine what the world would be like if Steve Sheinkin had decided to become a NASCAR driver instead of one of the finest history writers I know of. Or what if Neil Swaab chose to be a pastry chef instead of becoming one of the most clever cartoonists alive? Well, those guys might be happy, but it would be a very dull world indeed because we wouldn't have the terrific "Time Twisters" series for our reading pleasure. If you want to have fun while simultaneously learning some truly valuable lessons about history, then you absolutely MUST read these books.” —Nick Bruel, New York Times–bestselling author of the Bad Kitty series
