The character of Nate was the perfect hero for this story. I like that he was developed to be a regular kid with no special abilities, an average kid. His strength and his refusal to give in and give up were part of what made him such a great character. He wasn't afraid of taking the lead and he had compassion for the other kids, always thinking beyond himself. The other characters, both minor and main, were all equally well developed. Whether you liked them or not as a character, they were fully believable.
I really enjoyed this book, and my 14 year old son will soon be reading it and reviewing it as a guest blogger on my site. There are a few minorly gory scenes, but not inappropriately so. I definately recommend this book!
Young readers will be treated to a very believable protagonist. Nate has problems like any other young person. His dad is spending more time with his new family, rather than with him. His dad keeps missing his important football games. Worst of all, his dad doesn't tend to follow through with his promises. Sound familiar? To a lot of kids out there it definitely will. Lest you think that Nate is whiny about all of this, he's not! Instead he's quite an intelligent young boy. I liked how he thought everything through when he was faced with a problem.
Enter Cornelius Chip. Nate is whisked magically off to a place where he might have thought he wanted to be, but now realizes was a mistake! See Nate wishes he could grow up so he can take care of himself and not have to rely on his parents. Again, sound familiar? Let's just say his wish is granted. What ensues is a fascinating, sometimes slightly confusing but always fun, adventure. Yet again I must applaud Nate's character. This setting brings out even more of his resourcefulness and tenacity. This boy doesn't give up, and I adored him for that.
Land of Corn Chips is definitely a different kind of middle grade novel than I've ever read before. I applaud Angela Carlie for meshing a very realistic character and such a quirky and interesting world.Read more ›
I wasn't disappointed at all, on any level. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I think you will too.

I read this story with my grandson and found it was very hard to get into the story. We only read half the book before choosing something else.Published on September 12, 2012 by Kindle Customer
