I didn't much like or connect with any of the characters--they were neither so strange as to be satirical caricatures nor were they so normal as to be like real people. The author's writing is really painful along the telling rather than showing line and given that the sto I've read plenty of implausible stories that nevertheless work.
The author's writing is really painful along the telling rather than showing line and given that the story was set in realistic NYC, the sheer unreality of the adventure just didn't work. I didn't buy it, I didn't care and I skimmed through to the finish less than satisfied with the whole thing. Crazy tall tales like this usually work best outside a "real" setting. Also, it helps to have characters we care about.
When Gregor is sucked into the mysterious Underland in Greogor the Overlander, we already feel for the kid who's lost his dad and has to protect his baby sister. I never feel anything for these characters and am left with the sense that the adults are a bunch of idiots without any real power or sense. I had hoped this would be fun, but it just couldn't pull me in. Aug 27, Pandora rated it did not like it Shelves: sci-fi-2nd-floor.
I tried to enjoy this book but, I really couldn't. I expected crazy situtions but, these were too unreal.

There was also not enough humor to back up the unreal situtions like Captain Underpants. At least I get a chuckle out of Captain Underpants twinkie that it is. This book read as if the author thought if he put enough silly stupid stuff, like a planet that grows cotten candy, in the book kids would like it. I have higher expections for kids. I also had trouble in that this was junk sci-fi. Jus I tried to enjoy this book but, I really couldn't. Just a lot of crazy stuff using space as justfication. This is really a poor fantasy trying to hide as Sci-fi.
I don't how this book got published but, I sooner read the whole Eragon series.

Then, the husband disappears, apparently carried off in the night, and the son finds evidence that something strange is indeed happening in the park. The story wanders off into alien abdu While not perfect, the story was a lot of fun.
The story wanders off into alien abductions, giant animals and a plot to sell fake trees. It's not great literature, but it is good, goofy fun. Kids who like Daniel Pinkwater or Bruce Coville stories will like this one. Jul 18, Mar Mitchell added it. Dan Elish keeps you hanging on the edge of your seat with his unique way of telling a story. This story is about four kids that come together with one goal to save the world from giant woodchucks. This is a hilarious read for all kids. Jun 21, Sarah rated it it was amazing.

A frozen woodchuck, a father who has disappeared, and a girl from class who has a machine that can take them into space, Jimmy Weathers is having a very strange week. I've read lots of kids' books that were well written and this one wasn't.

The dialogue was distracting because it just didn't ring true. Not something to recommend to my kids. Josie rated it really liked it Jul 09, Alexis Ivy rated it liked it Nov 06, Hannah M rated it really liked it May 30, Jj Lee rated it it was amazing Nov 06, Padya rated it really liked it Jan 30,
