Another fun adventure with Desmond and his friends. This book is the third in the Desmond Pucket series. It is a cross between an illustrated story and a graphic novel. Desmond tells the story and adds his own drawings and comments throughout. In this story, Mr. Needles has returned and is now Principal Needles. The first thing he does is cancel the School Carnival of Horrors and get Keith Schminsky released from Military School to keep Desmond in line. When Desmond, Ricky and Becky create a ghost of Mr. Needles hero to get him to reinstate the carnival, they are surprised it works so well. With the carnival back on, Keith and Desmond are now in a contest to see who can create the best "ride" for the carnival. The loser has to give up scaring for the rest of junior high and high school. When Desmond's monsters get stolen he does not know what he is going to do. Keith, of course, is the culprit, but when he stole the monsters he also finds out what Desmond has done. He threatens to tell Mr. Needles what he has done unless he agrees to create a lame ride. Desmond does not want to give up but it seems he has not choice. Tina, Keith's sister, has an idea. Again the illustrations are black and white cartoons which the kids will love, with notes and facts to add to the story. A fun book that kids (ages 8 to 12)will love. There are more recipes and directions to the reader for some of Desmond's tricks at the end of the book. The children will love that. I am sure that this book will be enjoyed by the kids as much as the adults who may read it with them. Thanks to Netgalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.
