We love this book because it is humorous, descriptive and it makes you never want to stop reading. Our favorite part was when Dallas and Florida tricked Mr. Trepid by putting tacks, brownies and poison ivy under rocks. Mr. Trepid came along to get underground funds but all he found was poison ivy, brownies and tacks. Our favorite character was Florida because she was extremely funny and didn't go along with anything Dallas had to say. In the beginning of the book Florida, Dallas' sister, was very pessimistic. Throughout the book, Dallas, Florida's brother, teaches her to be more caring and less stressed. By the end of the book, Florida is optimistic.
We recommend this book to fifth and sixth graders who like books with humorous characters.
