School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-Twleve-year-old Kevin and his older sister Holly are on the run from a mysterious stalker named Toad and, befitting their offbeat lifestyle, they wind up in Venice Beach, California. Holly gets a chance to practice her opera singing under the alias of Chickadee Gomez while Kevin reinvents himself as Pepe, the kid fortune teller. The siblings encounter many wacky characters in their new home, including a medical student who juggles watermelons, a mother who imitates the Statue of Liberty, and a movie extra landlady. Of course, Toad follows them to Venice in a thin plot to gain a map that their missing and presumably dead mother left behind. Although the mystery aspects of the plot are sketchy, the colorful characters and vivid sketches of life in Venice make this novel by Sid Fleischman (Greenwillow, 2003) worthwhile. Galen Druke and the Full Cast Audio staff do an excellent job of imbuing the wacky characters with life. Fans of Sid Fleischman as well as those new to his work will enjoy this novel's humor and great dialogue.-Katherine Devine, Westminster Academy #26, Elizabeth, NJ Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

I'm in 8th grade now, but my dad first read this book to me when I was in kidergarten. I loved it.. and I still do. It's a really good book. I even got a new copy, because my old one was in bad shape. I would recommend this book to anyone, any age.. It's great.

In middle school, my theatre teacher chose this book for me to read and compete with in prose. It was such an entertaining story, that I ended up getting second place in the whole competition.
