The plot is zany and displays a witty sense of humor that goes beyond kid-humor. It's up to date in its cleverness and pays attention to how kids think and talk nowadays. I'm a scout leader for boys of about this age group, and I can tell this story is perfect for them.
The part that really surprised me was the successful injection of serious themes and meaningful character development within a short, silly middle-grade book. It's no Les Miserables, but you actually come to care about two of the main characters by the end, and empathize with them in a way I didn't think was possible in a story about corndogs and talking spaceships. Well done, Mr. Bransford!
I bought this book not exactly because I expected my daughter to read it; she's almost twelve and tends to do the opposite of anything I want her to do. I bought it with no small feeling of gratitude to Nathan Bransford for the many years he's devoted to his blog and because, as an author with a book here on Amazon, I know what it's like to live and die by our numbers.
So here's the icing on the cake: my daughter loves the book and can't put it down. My daughter, who is not the most devoted reader I've ever seen, is quite devoted to this happy book about Jacob Wonderbar and his space adventure. So thanks to the author for writing his blog, for helping so many other writers over time, and for this book.
