Yes, other than Mad Mouse, I like Chris Grabenstein's other books, even those written for younger audiences.
The drunken father voice was a little theatrical, but all others were well-done.
It might be time to retire the series due to the limits created by the naming convention. At some point, it just seems awkward and contrived.
The Americana line scene was a perfect use of irony.
Kemp was a little too self-centered to believe, but I still enjoyed getting into his narcissistic mind and watching him trip over his own ego.
This could be a great family film. The book reads like a movie. The book narration is outstanding.
I love books that keep me thinking long after I have finished them. This one ranks in my top ten favorite books of all time. If you enjoy pondering questions like "what constitutes a miracle, and what is mere coincidence?" or "why are some people born in affluence and others poverty?" this is a great read. This is Christian literature with deep theological themes. The characters are very original and the conflicts between blacks and whites defy old stereotypes. Even as a white woman, I was able to identify with the black male character and gained new understanding for his struggles. Don't expect a predictable ending. If you seek to understand the symbolism in this story, you will find the ending quite satisfying. This is a book about the hope that is offered when we truly yield to the love of Christ. I recommend it to anyone interested in such hope.
