really liked it

It looks like I'm in the minority on this one. Was it fun to read? Yes. Was it cute and quirky? Yes. But that's about it. I felt like it was trying to hard to be cute and quirky. Every single character was a caricature. Every piece of dialogue was over the top. It got really old. I love the idea of a superhero squirrel, and quirky books are fun, so I did enjoyed it. The other thing that gave me pause was DiCamillo's excessive use of difficult vocabulary. I think most readers in the intended audience will struggle so much with constantly not knowing words, that they will lose the enjoyment of this fun story.
