I think the story was funny because everything that Arthur was telling DW was really a good story and really funny. Also, he didnít know that he was telling her a story. I think it was mean that Arthur didnít want to tell DW a story. I think some of the excuses Arthur was saying would be very fun, but also dangerous. The volcano was dangerous because they could have got hurt. I think that getting pictures taken by reporters is fun because you get to have fame for fifteen minutes. Also, I think that Arthur should have thought about what Pal was feeling about all of the things he was saying.
I do not recommend this book to people who do not like to tell other people stories. They will not like that Arthur is telling DW a story, because he told her before that he wasnít going to tell her a story and he did anyway. I recommend this book to people who like to tell stories because they would like it. They would like it because he told DW a story. They wouldnít like it because he didnít want to tell her a story. He acted like he was too busy and made up examples why he didnít want to tell DW the story.
