Do you like adventures? If so you should try the book, The Class Trip from the Black Lagoon. It is about a kid named Hubie who goes on a class trip. He goes on a bus ride with a crazy bus driver. Then he gets a plane ride with Mr. Fenderbender. They go to a jungle. Mosquitos as big as count Dracula try to eat them. The author’s purpose is to entertain and I really was.
I thought the book was enjoyable. I like the book because Hubie is wonderful and a funny character to read about. My favorite part was when Randy fell in a quick sandbox. I liked that part because Mrs. Green said save it for recess because he fell in the sandbox. This book is part of a series called The Black Lagoon. It is similar to the book The Field Day from the Black Lagoon. Both have silly characters. You may enjoy this book as much as I did.
I recommend this book to people ages 6-10 because I bet they would like the adventures. The type of reader that will enjoy this book are people that like to have a good laugh. This might interest people who like crazy school adventures and who like the jungle.
