Previously read; currently playing catch-up.

Oh man, this brought back memories.

In the golden days of my youth I subscribed to Nickelodeon magazine and Shark Hunters was a regular feature. In small monthly packages, the strip delivered loads of irreverent humor and wacky storytelling. I think some of my earlier attempts at writing were (at least tangentially) inspired by Shark Hunters.

Reading it as an adult, in bulk, the strip doesn't quite hold up for me. It's still fun and funny: I can SENSE h

This one is bookended by Julie giving her class report about her summer vacation. The middle is, of course, a depiction of all her various adventures with her crazy Grampa. They start out trying to find Stephen, the biggest shark in the world, but get sidetracked by numerous hurdles - including cats who are trying to find Stephen so that they can make him into cat food. In the end, they find Stephen, who they re-unite with his long-lost mother, Stephanie, and Julie, Grampa, and Gramma make it sa ...more
I wanted so much to enjoy this more than I did. I remember reading it when I was a kid and TOTALLY in love with Nickelodeon Magazine! It seemed different from that time; I have a feeling parts were edited for length? And it says something about being the first collection of stories; so hopefully there is more later.
A hoot. I love Grampa and Julie and their shark hunt.

This is an excellent, illustrated book for children!

Julie is giving her “How I Spent My Summer Vacation” speech in school. It’s a fun story about her and her grandfather searching for the world’s biggest shark, and in the process, stumbling across talking cats, pirates, monkeys under the sea, and rocket ships!

An insane amount of fun, with a bit of snide humor for adults!

And there were science lessons!
Grampa was a weirdo. And I liked the shark's mom the best.
Or maybe the scientist-monster.

Art is a bit odd, yet I enjoy the author and the zany stories.
Entertaining, but nothing to write home (or to Goodreads) about.
This was really funny. I really liked it.
The ocean monkeys were my favorite! :)
