I liked the book a little bit. It was weird, because it wasn't that entertaining. They ate pizza in the library and they had as many pieces as they wanted, and they got to watch TV.
I bought this book for my daughter who is in second grade! She loves Arthur and wanted a chapter book! Great book on her reading level! I would suggest this for a girl or a boy!
