Pro Wrestling Books - Wrestling with words

Release Schedule (6 December)

Two new entries this week. First Abraham Lincoln, Pro Wrestler (Time Twisters) by Steve Sheinkin:

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.

When Abraham Lincoln overhears a classroom of kids say “history is boring,” he decides to teach them a lesson. Lincoln escapes from 1860―to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler! Now siblings Doc and Abby have to convince Lincoln to go back to Springfield, Illinois, and accept the presidency . . . before everything spins out of control!

Abraham Lincoln, Pro Wrestler is the first chapter book in the Time Twisters series from acclaimed author Steve Sheinkin. Also check out Abigail Adams, Pirate of the Caribbean!

And Golosseum 1 by Yasushi Baba:

The sci-fi wrestling political parody action manga that rocked Japan finally comes to America! Now with EVEN MORE suplexes per volume!

Scientists discover a new material that renders people immune to all existing weapons. But these “peacemakers” instead transform world war into a martial-arts free-for-all! Rasputin plots with Russian President Putinov to control the global supply. Opposing them are the unstoppable Axe Bogan, a certain master in a jumpsuit from China, and a slew of other muscular heroes!
