We read this book together on a summer road trip. As I was reading the inside book jacket, I paused and asked my younger sons if they knew what a 'psychic' was. My middle son nodded and said, "He's like Robin, right?" What? Like Robin? "Uh, that's a sidekick," I explained...

And so began our reading of Paulsen's book. I have loved every book written by the creative author. I especially like how he writes with such voice, and feel that any text by him would serve as a great mentor text for this writing process. Mudshark doesn't disappoint in this regard, either.

Full of silly boy humor, fantasy situations and a satisfying ending, my boys and I enjoyed this one to no end. My one complaint? Every character had an Anglo name: Bill Wilson, Mr. Wagner, Betty Crimper...
