This book is incredibly fun. The author has made up an interesting group of characters to tell the story of Horton Halfpott, who works as a dishwasher for a rich family. Horton meets Celia, who is having a party thrown by the family and lots of fun misadventures happen. Boys and girls will love the humor in this book!

  1. This is the second book by Tom Angleberger, who wrote The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, so I am expecting good things.

  2. The students (and me too) had so much fun reading “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.” I’m excited Tom Angleberger has written another book. He has a great sense of humor and books like this are very popular with the kids. I would love to add this book to our library to spread more fun and humor!

    We can’t keep “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda” on the shelf. It sounds like this will be the same!

  4. Another book from the author of “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda”, a book that made me laugh out loud more than once… I think I have an new “go to” author to recommed to students. I can’t wait to read it.

  5. this looks like a fun book our students would check-out, they really like this author and have been asking if he has written anything else.
