Avril Crump And Her Amazing Clones is a story filled with action, adventure, suspense, and even comedy. this was a very interesting book, with a secretly mysterious plot.
The story starts out as a young Avril Crump, (scientist) is experimenting one late night with parts of her DNA. she mixes her DNA with three other substances which causes a giant explosion. after the dust settles, Crump realizes that there were three shadowy figures standing before her. a young girl named Eddy, an old fashioned...more
Dr. Crump is not a typical, beautiful scientist in fact she's down right goofy looking. After a few explosions in the lab, she finds herself among 3 clones one is even a talking dog!

A good read-aloud with the kids. The 12 year old would rate it at 5 star, the 8 year old, a 2 star. I thought it was, well, a good family read aloud. Thus, the 3 star review.

A very British style silly romp with unusual characters a plenty.

I didn't get far into this book before I decided to abandon it. It was okay but it didn't really hold my interest and there were other books I wanted to read instead. I don't think I'll ever check it out again and finish it.

I thought this book was great ... Eventhough it is a small sized book I was reading it for ages . Taking in every single thing that happened!!! I hope this author has more books! x
One of my favourites, the humour in it is right up my alley. I found myself laughing out loud in some places.
