    This book goes deeper into American history by picking up the storyline from the last book dealing with slavery I was glad to see the kids dealing with a very meaningful mystery rather than just adventures hopping through the rooms and in and out of minor scuffles There is a little snafu regarding what happens when you mess with the past too much but it was remedied so quickly that the stakes felt very low As usual I m skeptical at how much trust the adults put in these kids, especially the random ones from history that meet two children, unchaperoned, wearing modern clothing always happen to swallow whatever basic story the kids spit out It s also convenient that they primarily meet kids their own age when they re on their adventures.But I m looking forward to see how this series wraps up Oh, also, I hate the spider on the cover and the large illustration of one inside Lol

    After their adventures in The Sixty Eight Rooms and Stealing Magic, Jack and Ruthie are back They are still interested in having adventures in the rooms who wouldn t be , but have a serious reason to investigate during a genealogy project at school, they find out that their friend Kendra is a descendent of a woman who ran a business in the early twentieth century, something rare for an African American woman at the time Even though Kenra s ancestor had gotten her formulae from her ancestor, who was a slave, she had no proof Ruthie and Jack find a book of recipes, but also a cryptic note that they should talk to Isabelle They do, and find out that she worked with Mrs Thorne and knows that a will was drawn up clearing Kendra s relative The will must be in the rooms somewhere, where it was put for safekeeping, and the children need to find it Jack also wants to find an ancestor of his own Jack Norfleet, a pirate After meeting him, however, Jack starts to fade away, and Ruthie has to go back and set things right so that Jack doesn t cease to exist Despite a dangerous spider encounter and troubles with museum security, Jack and Ruthie use their time traveling adventures to help solve mysteries in the present day.Strengths One of the best time travel devices EVER miniature rooms that actually exist Certain objects animate the rooms, and while it s a little unlikely that the children would get in to the museum, a convincing back story has been built I like the children, and their reasons for being in the rooms are solid I would have adored these books when I was younger.Weaknesses The first two in the series don t get checked out very much, so I m debating purchasing the third There is a fourth coming out as well, and I don t know that I can justify them Sigh.

    These books remind me somewhat of the Magic Tree House books but for older kids I really enjoy the history and adventure in them.

    Book number 3 in this really great series Would be a fun way to introduce a unit on Civil War, Underground Railroad, or Slavery I m really hoping to make it to Chicago again to visit the actual Thorne Rooms Sixth Graders Ruthie and Jack return to the Art Institute of Chicago s magical Thorne Rooms During a school presentation, Ruthie and Jack discover that their classmate Kendra is descended from Phoebe Monroe, the young slave they befriended when they traveled to 19th century South Carolina Kendra tells them that long ago her family lost their good name and their business selling herbal remedies when mobsters accused them of stealing the recipes Only Ruthie and Jack know the truth because only they know about the secret ledger that Phoebe wrote the recipes in long ago Ruthie and Jack s mission to clear Kendra s name takes them back to the Thorne Rooms, where a mysterious old coin leads them to 1753 Cape Cod and to Jack s own ancestor the pirate Jack Norfleet But playing with history can be dangerous Suddenly, Jack s very existence is in jeopardy Can Ruthie and Jack find the proof they need to help Kendra And can they fix the past and save Jack s future before it s too late

    In the third adventure of close friends Jack Ruthie at the Thorne Rooms exhibit in Chicago s Art Institute, things are about to get a little personal Ruthie first discovers that a school friend of hers is a descendant of the slave girl Phoebe Monroe that her family has been the victim of a terrible tragedy Kendra s great grandmother, who was the granddaughter of Phoebe, set up a large business as a purveyor of herbal remedies mixtures, but she was accused by members of the mob of having stolen her proprietary formulas from them , in the absence of any proof that they recipes belonged to her, she lost everything, including her good name Kendra her family are determined to restore that good name, Jack Ruthie may just be able to help.However, Jack becomes distracted upon discovering that an antique coin, a Spanish piece of eight , that has been in his family for generations, may act on the kids in the same way as the key formerly belonging to the Duchess Christina of Milan when holding it in near proximity to the Thorne Rooms, Jack is shrunk down to a size where he is able to enter the different times places within the miniature rooms Can he track down the ancestor who originally owned the coin, a man rud to be a pirate Kids who have liked the other stories in this series will find this one just as fascinating easy to sink into I know I myself would have adored this story, particularly its connection to the amazingly interesting study of one s own genealogy.
