I picked this up after loving the movie. This is very different than the movie. Yes, this is normal for books vs. movies, but this is one time I liked the movie more. Much more. The only redeeming value of the book was the end. It is your basic ‘loser-kid-overcomes-gigantic-odds-and-surprises-everyone’ (except the reader). I suppose if you’re out to write a book to enthrall young boys, then this has it all: from potty humor to proving yourself. I did find myself laughing out loud with my kids at a few parts, but I do wish I would have read it before I suggested reading it together. If you want some inspiring literature—or even a really good story—you’ll probably want to look elsewhere.
