"[S]hort chapters, nonstop action, good humor, and a cast of well-developed minor characters make this a worthy addition to the easy-chapter-book shelf."--Booklist "Giff adeptly creates an entertaining and believable story about two mischief-making boys. There are enough surprising developments to keep the story moving and engagement high. The short sentences and paragraphs make the book especially appropriate for reluctant readers. A fun adventure"--School Library Journal "Readers who haven't already met the Moran family in the first two volumes are in for a treat. A major strength of this series is the underlying warm family feeling; Hunter's continuing efforts to teach his baby sister to say his name are just one example. The nonstop action and near-slapstick humor will surely please Hunter's middle-grade fans."--Kirkus Reviews
