In AAAARGH!!!, Tuna and Herby try to help TJ with a book report
by getting the author to write it for her, but all three of them quickly
see the consequences of cheating spiral out of control. Meanwhile, TJ’s
cute neighbor and classmate Chad Steel is getting ready for a big
surfing competition—and learning his own lesson about honesty.
This six-book series centers around two 23rd century goofballs, Tuna and
Herby, who travel back in time to study TJ Finkelstein for their
history project. TJ will someday become a great leader who demonstrates
honesty, integrity, thoughtfulness, self-sacrifice, respect for
others—all traits she hones and grasps through her adventures in this
series. Unfortunately, Tuna and Herby get stuck in TJ’s time (modern
day), so she has to deal with their schemes while juggling the normal
issues of a seventh grader who has moved to a new city, is trying to fit
in, and is coping with her mother’s death and her family’s new life.
