This book kind of lost me in the first chapter. I kept reading just to see if it got better. It didn't really work for me. Most of the chapters seemed pretty meaningless. Maybe that was the purpose - meaningless humor. But it was just really odd.

Dianna I don't find it particularly funny now but when I was in elementary school I thought those books were hilarious. I wonder if it's the sort of book that you have to be a kid to enjoy.

I do think that kids will find it funnier than I did but I recognize that there are some types of humor that even as an adult I still don't appreciate or like.


Dianna That is so true! I completely agree.
