I strongly suggest that you read this book as soon as you can. It’s very good and very funny. Johnny Khamka is a seriously weird boy who discovers that he could be a VERY good comedian. But as Johnny draws closer to the State final his jokes get lame and unfunny. Will Johnny win the State final or will the other comedians overpower him? I liked the way Johnny narrates the story because he makes it so entertaining and uses funny language.

These books are very good. Dwight is an unusual character who does really weird stuff like digging holes in his backyard, sitting in them then filling them back up again. But when he makes an ordinary finger puppet of Yoda that’s when things get veeeeeeery strange. Yoda can predict the future, stop people from making absolute fools of themselves, and can give GREAT advice. Everyone wonders how Origami Yoda can be so great when Dwight himself is so clueless. A year later in the second book, it’s dark time. Dwight’s enemy (Harvey) has made a finger puppet of Darth Vader. Harvey is constantly telling everyone that Dwight is bad. So Dwight needs to be saved.
I love the way that at the end of both books it tells you how to make Origami Yoda, Darth Vader and an emergency Yoda.

The Golden Door
I liked the action in this book and I couldn’t stop reading it. This story is about how Rye (the main character) goes through the Golden Door and tries to save Dirk (his older brother). The Golden Door is a teleporter and you have to be 18 yrs old and you have to be a boy. Rye is only 16 but he lies to save his brother. The Skimmers (dragons) are dangerous. My favorite bit was when Rye discovers what the powers are of the things in the bag.

I really liked Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder. It’s very funny. I think that Nilly was a bit too keen on trying the Fart Powder but Fartonaut is a good name. My favorite bit was when Nilly and Doctor Proctor got put in jail and Nilly goes down the toilet and through the sewers (yuck!). I like the bit where more than 100 police cars chase Mr. Trane through the city.

This book is Thai-riffic!! I love the comics. The best part was the super-soaker festival. It was reeaally cool.

This book is sooooo cool!! That Brain-Drain machine makes people soooo clever!!! I love that at the end Dr Gore gets turned into a rat! Frankie's parents are so mean! But at the end, they buy him a new computer game and let him stay up for as long as he wants.
