    This is part of a series of small books written by Canadian authors and me, being Canadian Well, I want to go through and read a bunch of them They re short but they re about people my age This one was a lot of fun It followed two boys as they put together an event for a fair in order to please their dads Things didn t go as planned and it actually ended up better in a round about way.

    This was the Orca book we needed Often the Orca books are about serious problems in life that sometimes the audience will encounter While most of us probably don t have to worry about rotten tomatoes and organizing events, it s still a lesson Maybe because this is in the Juvenile section, it s different You can t have some of the events that go on in YA in the Juvenile section So this book was much lighter and carefree, which was really nice A lot of the turmoil or knowledge that something This was the Orca book we needed Often the Orca books are about serious problems in life that sometimes the audience will encounter While most of us probably don t have to worry about rotten tomatoes and organizing events, it s still a lesson Maybe because this is in the Juvenile section, it s different You can t have some of the events that go on in YA in the Juvenile section So this book was much lighter and carefree, which was really nice A lot of the turmoil or knowledge that something is going wrong really isn t present Yes, in the last few chapters there s a bit of panic but it is different Also you actually see the consequences, which is a lot of fun The book also really knows when to skim bits because they re boring, and when to tell us everything I m still curious what happened to the skate park though This was the Orca book to tell us that sometimes stupid things will happen, but sometimes they have good results

    I was quite surprised I picked up this book from the library and I am an avid Eric Walters fan This book was shorter so I decided to give it a try I actually really enjoy it The characters both were mischief makers but never want to hurt people with their tricks They learned after their mistake to own up and they ended up making a boring fair fun for everyone A great read and I suggest to teachers to add this to their libraries and lit circle book colections

    Splatwas such a fun read I wasn t expecting much, since a lot of the books in this line haven t been that good, but this book was great It had me laughing a couple times and smiling almost throughout the whole book with the antics of Keegan and Alex If you re looking for a quick read that s completely enjoyable, I d definitely recommend this one.
