Also, I wish there wasn't as much "school drama" in there -- Mal's obsession with a girl that doesn't think he's cool enough, and unkind school kids.
Still we have read all in the series and enjoyed them all.
It is hard not to relate to Mal even as as adult as Stephen brings us through a journey so many of us have experienced in school. The tales of bullies, first loves, homework, and being grounded for misbehavior. Mal has a great imagination that is not limited by his superior intelligence. He builds all types of inventions to try to solve the problems he faces, but rarely does everything go the way he wants, especially when it comes to love. Chad is the perfect sidekick as the voice of reason and faithful companion to Mal.
I enjoyed thoroughly reading this novel with my middle school students grades 5-6. They loved the humor and could not wait to hear what Mal would do next. I work with students who struggle with reading, but this novel was one that has inspired them to pick up books more often, especially graphic novels.
I would recommend this book to any late elementary or middle school reader. It is perfect for reluctant readers as it engages and entertains without being overwhelming.
I can't wait to see what Stephen comes up with next! He has built a fan club at a small rural middle school in Minnesota for sure!
