I have the first book...somewhere in my "books bought but not yet read" box (or mountain) but well...it still suffers from "I've-yet-to-read-it" syndrome, but you can definitely follow this adventure with no problem...though I REALLY want to know more about that talking potato salad. The cover and title are what drew me to the series first since I had not previously heard of this particular author. The color scheme is black and white and green with a red thrown in now and again which just adds to the quirky appeal of the book. The story is told not only in passages but also illustrations and a few comic book friendly segues sure to make you smile (or laugh, guffaw, etc). For a quick peek at the webisode/book trailer for the title, click on over to the publisher site.
ARC for review was won via a contest held by the great folks over at Books 4 Boys (Penguin Young Readers Group). (THANKS!) Though obviously, I am not a boy, the site has books for everyone....just as an added bonus, these titles happen to be "boy approved" so if you or someone you know is looking for reading suggestions for their boy readers, I'd definitely steer them over here. They've got everything from information on the Dragonbreath series to Vladimir Tod, excerpts to downloads, and quite a few others awesomely bookish things so be sure to check them out online...or follow along on Twitter.
Until next time....happy reading!
