3 1/2 stars... I find it hard to rate books at this level, but I can say it's cute for 3rd/4th grade boys. It's kind of like Fudge or Stink. The jokes sometimes loose a little something in the delivery. The author often explains the consequences of Melonhead's actions before explaining what led to those consequences, usually leaving me confused -- "Did I miss something? Oh, now I get it." -- and forcing the humor to take a back seat to the "mystery" of what happened. All in all, a light, fun read.
