"Oh no!" exclaims a young girl when she sees her history test. Shockingly, she got one question wrong. This is unacceptable to her, so there is only one thing to do...change history. After hopping through time, the girl finally lands in prehistoric Belgium where she unsuccessfully tries to teach two wild-looking cavemen how to paint. Oh well, she'll just have to do it herself. While she gets to work, the cavemen steal her time machine and have a fun romp through the "future". In a funny twist the girl does end up changing the past to get that one mark, but all the rest of her answers are now wrong. These adventures are documented in a grainy, film-like quality with dramatic lighting and shots reminiscent of actual movies. The pictures largely speak for themselves in both story and humour, so text is refined to the minimum, punctuating images with short statements, and sarcasm. Oddly enough, there is somewhat of a message to this silly tale of time travel. Obsessiveness is detrimental. It's just a mark, it is not something worth changing history for.

Great cover. Great illustrations. Mediocre text and story.
