The Last Last-Day-of-Summer
Otto and Sheed are wishing the last day of summer could last a little longer. It seems to be racing by, and before they can blink, it will be gone, and they’ll be back in school. But the old saying goes, be careful what you wish for — you just might get it. They meet a strange man, someone who does not live in their small town of Fry, who takes a picture of the town and freezes time along with everyone in town. Otto and Sheed are famous for solving problems in town, but this problem is particularly difficult. The man, Mr. Flux, has an army of unusual beings to help him. The boys will have to find their own army and be very clever to fix this.
Author Lamar Giles has created a terrifically fun cast of characters, a great setting, and a bit of mystery for his co-protagonists to resolve with a little time travel thrown in for good measure. The writing is crisp, and the dialogue is snappy. This book is a real romp, and middle-grade readers, even very reluctant readers, will eat this one up. It’s an absolute winner. Don’t miss it.
