This is an excellent read, but I prefered the adventures of Edgar and Ellen(Written by Charles Ogden),because it created a clearer image and it had better discription.Also when a image is created in my head by this book it's so different to what I see in the book's illustrations...>.<

This is the 2nd installment of the series and for the most part I thought it was cute and funny. The next book is coming out this summer. Fast read. Interesting characters. Very funny dog named Pickles! lol

I didn't really understand the beginning. I like books that there is excitement in the beginning so that you know you want to read this book. I stopped reading it after a chapter or two.

A really fun read. I was surprised and felt sad when I found out who the real murderer was. (Sorry no spoilers here)

School somehow thinks this is the kinda book we find interesting. However, the average 8-year old will love this book (and so did I secretly)

It was a really good book to me, the funny stuff was like the story that Wilma gave the judges to get into the place.
