Opinion: 

This is absolutely my favorite story I have found on LitPick. My favorite aspects were all the references to famous people such as Michael Jordan, The Beatles, and Thomas Edison. Also, this book has some great references to classic books and includes a checklist of great books to read at the end, such as Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Wonder, and many other greats.

The author, Chris Grabenstein, has written this novel to be attention grabbing, fun, and even informational, and that is exactly how it has turned out. I would highly recommend this book for any youth, as there was nothing offensive in it. I would recommend it to people who love to learn and read as well, since there are many informational references in it. I liked the mention of famous people because it really lets you relate to the references they make; it's like you're in on a club. Also, you can test out your knowledge when you participate in the puzzles and searches!
