Review: Claudia and the Bad Joke by Arley Nopra & Ann M Martin
This was an entertaining read. As is often the case with these books, the characters and situations aren't entirely realistic. The kids go about solving the problems for themselves without adult involvement and come up with a unique solution that works--which makes for fun reading, though I doubt things would work out so neatly in real life, or, when an injury occurs that adults wouldn't get involved. The illustrations are well done, and I just love that there are now plenty of these books for readers, new and old, to enjoy.
PS: There are two more BSC Graphix novels in the works, Kristy and the Walking Disaster and Mallory and the Trouble With Twins.
