My Thoughts:

I remember reading this back in gradeschool and thinking it was the most humorous book ever. It was the Gold Standard of Funny.

Reading this now, I can understand why my young self was so enamored. It is immature, all about the kids and them having Adventures that every kid can only dream about.

The adults are adults from a kids perspective, existing but usually getting in the way.

I’m rating this 3 because I’m an adult. But for kids, and my Inner Kid, I’m giving it a 5.
