Not Quite Fantastic   The Whipple Family is extraordinary.  In a world obsessed with world records, this family is consistently the first and the best at too many records to count.  And this includes not only the parents but all of their kids, down to the very youngest – a two-year-old.   And then there’s Arthur.  Stuck in the middle, his attempts to break records constantly come up short.  However, when something strange happens at the family’s annual birthday extravaganza, Arthur might be the only one who is able to figure out what is happening.  Has he found his special talent at last?   Unfortunately, I didn’t think this book was as fantastic as the family is.  The plot was just too slow, and it felt like things were dragging on and on.  When the story did get going, I was definitely interested in seeing how things developed.  The fact that book leaves many things open at the end doesn’t help.  The characters were fine, and the humor was great.  I had to chuckle at some of the crazy records.   If the pace had been improved, I would have enjoyed the book more.  As it was, the book is just average.  Still, I must admit I am tempted to pick up the sequel and see how things conclude, but only if I can get it from the library.

Omg ii really thought this was giong to be a fun and whacky adventure where arther finds his true talent wrong its about a mystery and it is insane behind the cheerful cover there is sabotage and danger. Although it has a whisical setting and tone it becomes a little dark for me i wouldn't recomend this to anyone below third or fouth grade. Don't be fooled by it't cute and charming mask it becomes a little rough around the edges.the anime loudicolo ;0
