I liked this book because of another unusual character named Dr. Muffin. When Eddie's parents get sick, they go to Dr. Muffin. The doctor gives them very strange prescriptions. For example, Dr. Muffin said to suck on an ice cube shaped like a famous general. Another time Dr. Muffin told Eddie's mom to keep acorns in her mouth to keep it from swelling. The story gets more interesting when Eddie's parents thought it would be best to have Eddie stay with his aunt and uncle until they recovered from their unusual sickness. I laughed a lot at the very unusual things that happen while they travel throughout the countryside.
I recommend this book, because it is very funny, witty and addicting. I think people who like comedy would like this book, because it will make them want to keep on reading. The best thing about this book is that once you are done, you can read the next book in the Trilogy called Dreadful Acts. I enjoyed the book, and I'm sure I'll enjoy the other two as well.
