"If you haven't seen this middle grade series yet, then I definitely suggest you do -- and soon! The books are full of laughs and also help kids learn some new vocabulary words. What a great combo!" —Julie Peterson, www.bookingmama.net (April 2011)
"The funniest book in the series so far!" —Mary Lee Hahn, www.readingyear.blogspot.com (May 2011)
"Third volume in a zany alphabetical title series . . . full of wild and crazy moments and experiences." —www.midwestbookreview.com (May 2011)
"A must for your elementary school reader." —www.thereaderscove.com (April 2011)
"A blend of a graphic novel and a journal, this series can be used for building a glossary of words with the same initial letter. . . . Featured words have an asterisk in the text and are defined in the gallery at the back. This gimmick does not get in the way of the enjoyment of the story." —School Library Journal (November 1, 2011)

The much-anticipated Cahoots is finally out and exceeding all expectations. This time we travel with Aldo all the way to his aunt and uncle's farm in Minnesota, where he's forced to give up his beloved electronics for an entire week. (Yep, I bet you can relate!) While continuing the legacy of Artsy-Fartsy and Bogus with its comedic illustrations and amusing vocab words (like cantankerous, caterwauling, and cockamamie), this book really gives the series a whole new dimension by bringing Aldo and Timothy, former nemeses, into an alliance against their cahootsing relatives. Plus, who can resist a book featuring UnderFlair (the cheerful underwear), cow tipping, and twin-speak? Definitely not me.

If you loved Artsy-Fartsy and Bogus, you'll love Cahoots. Stuck on his aunt and uncle's farm for a week--without technology!--Aldo has to deal with killer chickens, roosters who won't let him sleep, and twin cousins in cahoots against him. Though Aldo isn't able to see the humor in his situation, it rings from every page, delighting readers both young and old. Karla Oceanak has written a wonderfully engaging storyline, and Kendra Spanjer has illustrated the book in such a charming manner. Perfect for children and their parents, Cahoots is a wonderful adventure.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
