Disaster Diaries, #5

Written by R. McGeddon

How do you survive an encounter with a 6-foot tall spider?

1) Run away screaming
2) Try to pet it
3) Ask it nicely to spin you a silk dress

Find out in the fifth installment of this silly series, when Sam, Arty, and Emmie save the town of Sitting Duck from another disaster!

New student Felicia Forester quickly becomes the star of science class! But she secretly runs dangerous science experiments that soon have the entire town completely overrun with giant, human-eating spiders!

To make matters even worse, spiders are Sam’s greatest fear. Emmie and Arty must help him overcome his phobia to face the eight-legged crawlies―or their town will be totally infested!

Disaster Diaries includes funny illustrations and survival tips to avoid impending doom ―and face your fears!

–From the Publisher

I like Sam, he’s a goofy character yet still is serious and has to be brave with his fears. That is a good lesson for kids to read about. This book reminded me of the Last Kids on Earth series, so if you like that series you will probably like this too. I think this is a good book and I recommend it to Grades 4-6.
