I'm a bit partial and all, but this series was tons of fun and that perfect elusive blend of Wodehousian humor and childish whimsicality. Lovers of Monty Python and Douglass Adams should take note and go pick up a copy, if they can find it--then beg me for my impossible to find copy of the sequel.
This is a nice little book by a swell guy. I don't read a lot of YA novels but this is the rare YA book that will appeal equally to adults who are willing to give it a chance. Apparently it is the first in what is gong to be a series and I honestly look forward to seeing what happens to this character next. L.B. is clearly a talented writer, so don't pass this one up. Support this guy and buy his book!
