Description

"History can be hilarious, at least in the hands of author Dan Gutman." —Washington Post In New York Times bestselling author Dan Gutman's all-new series, which blends fascinating real history with an action-packed and hilarious adventure, four very different kids are picked by a mysterious billionaire to travel through time and photograph some of history's most important events. This time, the four friends are headed to 1863 to catch Abraham Lincoln delivering his famous Gettysburg Address. They'll have to work together to ask the right questions, meet the right people, and capture the right moment. And most important—not get caught! Back matter separating fact from fiction and real black-and-white photographs throughout make Flashback Four the perfect mix of true history and uproarious fun.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Mark Turetsky manages this juggling act with aplomb. Among the characters he portrays are a dignified President Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address; Lincoln's son, Tad, who is anything but an ordinary kid; the story's narrator, who switches from third person to direct comments to the listener; and each member of the Flashback Four. These hand-selected 12-year-olds time travel to November 1863 with the express task of photographing Lincoln while he gives his 237-word speech. Turetsky's characterizations of the four teens are spot-on. He gives voice to take-charge David, humble Luke, holier-than-thou Julia, and Isabel--ever the optimist. Listeners will come away with a greater understanding of the circumstances and personalities involved in this famous moment of the Civil War. A.R. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
