A great series
on September 16, 2003
This book, as well as the others in the "Andrew Lost" series, is wonderful! I stumbled across it as a gift for my nephew, but decided to read it to my 6 & 8 year old sons. They loved it, and we have read the whole series. Andrew's adventures kept the boys interested and there was a whole lot of learning too. Because Andrew is shrunk to a level we don't normally see, we get an "up close" look at things thru his adventures. There is lots of science, like what the color of a bubble means and how an insect sees with its many eyes (and so much more!). The books are sufficiently "gross" to interest boys, but not so gross that I couldn't read them. In fact, I learned at least as much as they did. Really interesting stuff! The chapters are short and easy to read. We finished each book in 2-3 sittings. I highly recommend these books.
