This book... is so... RANDOM...! RANDOM!!! OVER THE TOP!!! And SILLY! I don't even know where to begin, I mean... You've got talking pens, talking objects, a wacky adventure, and a main character you aren't sure if you should pity for being thrown into this mind-boggling world of weirdness. I liked it!

Although kids may not understand all of the wordplays going on in this gem, I found it really clever, cute, and fun, with tons of unique characters.

I don't know what it is about this book, but I have read it every summer since I was in grade for 14 years now. I just love the silliness and adventure, and of course, the poets. LOVE this book.

I really liked this book, but sometimes it lost me, which is why I'm only giving it 4 stars. Still, a great read and I'll read more of this author.

I 'm sucker for a good play on words, and the adventure is so wonderful, with a normal boy who wants to be a detective. So cute.
