This anthology has it all - good laughs, great writing and great reading.
This belongs on a shelf with all those great middle reader books like "Diary of a Wimpy Kid", "Artemis Fowl" and "The Lightening Thief". It is also part of a series selected specifically for boys to read.
There are a variety of narrators. I LOVE Eoin Colfer - he's Irish (fun accent and gift of gab), plus he's telling what sounds like a true story. I also liked the readers for "Your Question for Author Here" - this is a series of letters and the editors had the wisdom to use two voices.
I laughed and laughed. I also loved the insights into boys' brains, as I am raising two of them.
Let's say you have a long car trip. Let's say you have to take this car trip with two boys, and in addition to that, you don't want to listen to a chorus of "Are we there yet?" and "He's breathing my air!" Nor do you wish to rot your mind with their favorite kid pop tunes or Disney songs. Solution: This audio book!!! Everyone can join in, even the driver. The stories appeal to both adults and kids, and when you're laughing and listening to a good story, the long car trip seems like fun! My kids have the text copy, and like to read along at home.
