(with illustrations by Thomas McKean)

Avon Books, New York; Methuen, London

           

“A lovely mixture of humour and adventure.”

ESSEX RADIO

 

“A hilarious story”

JUNIOR BOOKSHELF

 

“This is the best book yet! It's even better than Harry Potter! All of McKean's books should get back in print. He's my favorite author. I bet that if all of his books went back in print and a few people told a few friends, who told a few friends, who told a few friends, etc., about this book he'd be bigger than J.K. Rowling as well as being better. If that does happen this will probably be the biggest and best book of them all!”

“I am a teacher who read this book to both a Fourth Grade and a Sixth Grade class. Both classes found it hilarious, with lots of laugh-out-loud moments. I myself laughed so hard during my first reading aloud that I couldn’t continue… A delightful book.”

ABE ON-LINE REVIEWS

(Posted 4 August, 2009)

 

For another point of view, read a review by stern librarian, Sally T. Margolis:

“Because their father has become engaged to a woman they dislike, the Smith children decide to sabotage the wedding through a series of unamusing and potentially dangerous ‘escapades’… There is not a sympathetic character in the entire story, and this book is not funny.”
