I got this a while ago and finally got around to reading it with the kids. I wish I’d done it sooner! It was a really enjoyable story for all of us. Mal is a smarty pants with the worst luck. We got to see his adventures and mishaps while we giggled the whole way through. (Captain Porky!!)
It took us to about a week to get through. We read a little before bed and more here and there. By the end we were acting out different parts as I read. I see a re-read in the future and reading the other books in the series too.
You can find out more about these guys here and no matter your age I think this book has something for everyone!
So go read and Enjoy!
