The book follows the exploits of “Hashbrown” and his fellow elementary school pals who all have descriptive nicknames. I found myself chuckling and smiling at the zany situations they found themselves in and was impressed with the author’s imaginative flair. In which other book does the character seek help from the elementary school mafia boss, or seek advice from a person trapped in a locker for seven years?
It is a quick, fun read rife with fifth-grade style humour, and I would recommend it. It looks like it is turning into a series. The second book is already out and I hear the author is making headway on a third book. I only hope someday that we get the zany cartoon version that my kids could watch on Saturday morning.
