Hilarious...however, I took a star off because there are some misprints in the ebook version that don't make much sense. Disappointing, B&N. The story is so funny. Written mainly for boys but many girls will enjoy it too. It would make a great class read aloud or part of a lesson on friendly letters. Read it twice before I even finished the book
