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

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! What happens when the evil Dr. Blut wants to destroy them all and has even managed to clone Dr. Crump! Will they survive or be banished to Room 237???

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. The 8 year old was a bit put off by the whole-clone/lab aspect of the storyline (we have a dog formerly a test lab dog in our life).

Avril is a frumpy, failing scientist who works for the local science company. She is about to be fired (too many lab projects gone awry) and goes off to assuage her grief with some snacks and w

I was promised a funny book in the description, and this book isn't funny! I laughed twice! Two stars for originality. But not the plot. In this book, there is no ageism: the main character is middle-aged. And there isn't lookism because she's also ugly and bald. And no mentalism (I googled "discrimination against low-IQ people") because she's stupid and so are all the other characters.
I didn't like the beginning. I didn't like the middle. I didn't like the end.

One of the best books of the year!!!!!! This is a new fav!!!

A very British style silly romp with unusual characters a plenty. The star is Avril Crump, a beleaguered and snack obsessed scientist, with her liberated lab experiments, the clones and, of course, a wicked mad scientist to give them all something to do. At times his evil plans are terrifyingly grim. Fast paced, with many scene changes. Meanwhile back in the laboratory....

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.

One of my favourites, the humour in it is right up my alley. I found myself laughing out loud in some places.
