Review by: Marina Fontaine on March 1, 2013 :
I got this book for my 10 YO son. He happens to be a very picky reader, but he loved this story. For my son, the best part was focusing on the main character's feelings, overcoming fears towards dogs and developing a relationship with his pet. (Just kidding, of course. The best part was- spoiler warning-the dog eating the homework!) My son also appreciated the sense of humor and the realism of the characters. As an adult, I also liked the realism of the family described in the book. It doesn't have the "modern" ironic view of the family, nor is the family unrealistically perfect. (Most recent kids' books I've encountered swing between these two extremes). Here, from the first page, I was thinking, "This could be one of my kids," or "That's what I would say as a mom in this situation." The story itself is simple, but engaging and fun, for both kids and adults. If you need something quick for your elementary or middle schooler to read, or for a break from the standard wizard/dystopia/romance stuff that populates juvenile literature nowadays, give this book a try.

Review by: Alex Canton-Dutari on March 1, 2013 :
Though this story seems directed more at teenagers than adults I found it quite enjoyable, especially as it was well written.
Some situations may have not been quite believable from my adult stance, though my child inner being accepted the presence of several dozen children cramming into Alex' room.
The final lesson learned was not expected by me, and I was quite pleased by it.
I will definitely read more stories by Mitt Ray.
BTW, I was taken by "Tea being eaten," an expression I would have frowned upon had a close British friend not explained to me that "tea time" is more than just tea but includes "chewables."
