There's nothing specific I can point out. It follows Phoebe and the people in her life. She deals with teasing, friendships, and other issues. My son has his own things to deal with, and one of them is pointing out the "truth" to people. When Phoebe insisted Marigold was a horse and Marigold stormed off in a huff, it made me happy that he had read that lesson.
There are so many good things pack in here, and it's funny and cute. The little girl in me who loved Unicorns, adores this series. I also love that I can enjoy this with my son.
I hope Dana keeps writing, and that Ivan and I can keep reading.
P.S. It was pretty awesome to see Ivan light up telling his librarian how he got to read the latest Phoebe and Her Unicorn book before anyone else! lol
But to be fair, they didn't really give it to me, as it's expires in 60 days from the time I downloaded it.
Anyway, I requested this one for my son. He loves the Binky adventures, or now the P.U.R.S.T. adventures.
According to Ivan this was good, but not great. I think he is biased because he doesn't like dogs in general.
I read through it, it's a quick read, great for early readers. And I thought parts were really funny. Like "Holy Fuzzbutt!" and "Holy hair balls, that's confusing."
I laughed, but it wasn't my favorite thing. I'm afraid I'd have to go with a meh rating, too.
Milo calls Alex in for yet another murder. I love how Alex isn't even pretending that he doesn't enjoy helping out. It's not that he likes the murder, he likes helping to solve the puzzle and knowing that he's doing something for the greater good. Plus he gets to hang with his best friend.
I'll be honest, Alex is so vanilla. He sometimes drives me crazy. But I still like him. Now Milo, that's my dining companion for the "what fictional character would you have dinner with?" question. He's sweet and thoughtful, but he doesn't take crap from anyone.
Also, Alex has a dog. Blanche, a french bulldog who likes to fart and snore. How can you not love her?
Jonathan Kellerman still has it going, and I hope he keeps writing these books. They are always thrilling. And yes, you are kept wondering who done it right to the very end.
