I thought this was an excellant book, full of zest and creativity. Simple daily occurances become an adventure in MELONHEAD's life. Great fun with worthwhile lessons.

I absolutely loved this book! I was laughing the whole way through. Not only was it clever but I could totally see it happening. I sort of felt that this was a male equivilent of Clementine by Sara Pennypacker. Totally worth reading.

A funny book with lots of kid appeal.

Clever book! Not a Newbery in my eyes, but certainly a series to follow.
