When Arlie woke up that morning, she had no idea that her life would be turned upside down in a matter of minutes.
Arlie's mom had given some of her toys to their neighbor, Cookie. When Arlie stepped outside, she saw Cookie removing the inner workings of her old orange kangaroo Fred's head. Arlie snatched it from her and ran, only to run over Tina's friend, Bethany Burgess, ruining her new white capris.
She couldn't stop, so she ran past a very surprised Ty and ended up in a tree near Mrs. Wombat's house. Ty showed up a few minutes later and ends up in the tree with Arlie.
While in the tree, Arlie finds a black dragonfly pendant and that's when the craziness really takes off. The pendant turns out to have an odd power - it turns inanimate objects into living, breathing things. Pretty soon lawn ornaments and other objects all over town are awake and wandering around.
Arlie, Ty, and Mr. Boots have their work cut out for them trying to get everything back to normal.
I found NIGHT OF THE LIVING LAWN ORNAMENTS to be even funnier than her last book, BOOTS AND PIECES. The characters were engaging and hilarious. Kids, teens, and even adults will laugh out loud while reading this book.
I enjoyed this book so much that I am passing it on to my younger sister and I know she'll love it as much as I did. This was a fast read mainly because of how humorous it was. Emily Ecton is definitely a must-read for me from this point forward!
