The best parts of the book is when the narrator gets up to his antics and begins talking about how brilliant he is. He is not afraid to show his seeming dislike for us readers if we haven’t read the first book. However, the best thing about it is how if you haven’t read the first book, it doesn’t affect your enjoyment of the second. You don’t miss out on anything that is vital to your understanding of the story.
The way the characters develop, is one of the ways I think the story is kind to those who haven’t read the first book despite how unkind the narrator is if that is the case. My favourite character would be the boss of the Twins Dad. She steals the show when she is in the room and is portrayed truly brilliantly! It is one of the few books that will make you laugh out loud. Tell your friends, make them laugh as well :)
Unfortunately, some parts of the book were not quite as good as they could have been. The characters don’t get old but I feel that the narrators jokes did at times. At first, I think that when he was talking about how amazing he is and how disappointed he was if we hadn’t read the first book was quite funny. However, those jokes and the use of French words all the way through the book just got overused.
Despite this, I think I would read another book by the same author because I think that I did enjoy it. Out of five, I think I would give it a four because like I said, there was a bit of room for improvement but I enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this book to others who are over the age of ten because there are lots of French words and I am not sure that they would fully understand the humor.
On the whole, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and if you want a funny children’s book, you can’t get much better than this.
