This crazy adventure is another epic story by Richard Clark!
Half of this story is the actual adventure, while the other half is a journal. Having this dual point of view is a change from Richard’s typical story telling, but I found it worked perfectly within the story. Following Rudy and the wild shenanigans he goes on fit really well bouncing back and forth. All three of the boys in this story are hilarious and fun to follow along this epic journey. It almost felt like a cartoon I’d watch on the weekends when I was off from school as a kid! This is super high quality writing!
The action in this story continues at an excellent pace that keeps the audience engaged. I feel that this book is perfect for the middle grade audience! Although, I might not use this as a bedtime story. It’s so action packed that it seems like the perfect, middle of the day read to get everybody wanting to run and jump around! There’s also some truly incredible suspense (for a middle grade novel!) that really enhanced the story overall. I didn’t expect that from Richard Clark!
Some of the chapters are very short, yet they felt just long enough. The book is a light, soft read despite the exciting action among the pages. I would definitely recommend picking up this book if you’re looking for an Indiana Jones type read for your children! The comedy, action and adventure will really catch your young readers!
Four out of five stars!
