    Witty, Entertaining read for kids

    I enjoy children's books, because they tend to be able to support a thinner, more ridiculous premise than adult books and still be entertaining rather than simply ludicrous. Whales on Stilts is about as thin a premise as one can ask for, and M.T. Anderson executes it beautifully. With an over-the-top storyline and laugh-out-loud dialogue and description, this book was a quick and highly entertaining read. I read it twice in one day, going back and drinking in all of the funny bits that I had overlooked the first time. Recommended for kids and also for any adult who enjoys a simpler read with a touch of the ridiculous.

    HILARIOUS BOOK!

    Altough this story was filled with plenty of action, my favorite part about it was the humor and comedy. This book cracked me up tons of times. A wonderful read for people who love comedy, Whales on Stilts is stunning and easy to read. I must admit, however, that the second book in the series, The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen, is not the least bit funny and horrible.

    Ridiculous Story

    I had heard that this was a cute story and the title had me curious. I read this story and with the first 100 pages, it was the most ridiculous storyline. I then jumped to the end of the book and didn't even make it through the last chapter. I won't ever wonder what I missed in the middle of the book. WOW

    I WISH I COULD SEE INSIDE TOBIN ANDERSON'S BRAIN

    M.T. (Tobin) Anderson has unleashed a new series with an insane plot that's to be admired. This whole book, including the illustrations, is creativity that few of us can achieve. When will the movie be out?

    What a book! Hilarious and creative!

    If the title doesn't capture you, nothing will! I can just picture whales walking around town on stilts. Hilarious! ¿¿¿ Author Anderson's witty writing style made me laugh all through the book. Excellent entertainment by a super talent!
