From School Library Journal
Grade 2-4-Zack's science-fair partner is the school's worst liar. No matter what yarn anyone tells, Andrew has to top it-in spades. Suddenly, in the midst of one of his whoppers, Zack notices that his friend's pants seem to be getting tighter- and tighter- and r-r-rip! Like Pinocchio, Andrew is showing physical reactions to fibbing. However, instead of his nose, it's his hind end that is growing. Before long, the boys' project-a bicycle-powered electrical generator-is in jeopardy. Andrew's seat can't fit on it! Zack must get his friend back to normal-and convince him to stick to the facts in the future. Amusing cartoon drawings illustrate Andrew's posterior problem without slipping over into gross details. Adults may find the preoccupation with backsides just a tad distasteful, but fans of the series expect...

Grade 3-5. Zack is a normal 10-year-old boy with a knack for getting into weird situations. In Wanda, he attempts to rid his apartment of a rude eight-year-old poltergeist who communicates by spelling out words with peanut M&Ms. In Litter Box, he plans to adopt a kitten but instead acquires a cantankerous talking cat that claims to be the reincarnation of his great-grandfather. He sees his reflection in the Medicine Cabinet mirror and falls through into a skewed world that its inhabitants consider much "cooler" than ours. An electrical accident occurs at school and Zap!?Zack can hear thoughts, including a bloodthirsty voice expressing an eagerness to kill. The stories have a whacked-out, off-the-wall humor that is reminiscent of the work of Daniel Pinkwater. At the same time, they neatly poke fun at the...

Grade 3-4?Zack is back! And, weird things are still happening to him. He goes to a new orthodontist, Dr. Jekyll, who insists that he drink rather then swish the "Miracle Mouthwash." As his teeth grow more crooked, Zack begins to think that the mouthwash might be the problem. Sneaking into the orthodontist's back room, he discovers that the dentist is experimenting with this potion on beavers. All ends well with this advice to readers, "I never never drink mouthwash at the dentist's office. I don't think you should, either." In I'm Out of My Body, Zack and a friend experiment with astral travel following the directions in an old book. After several adventures, the boys realize that they forgot to read the directions for returning to their bodies. In a trite ending, Zack's father picks up the book and puts it...

Grade 3-5–The influence of Lemony Snicket looms large in this mock gothic tale. The 10-year-old Shluffmuffin twins long to be adopted out of the Jolly Days Orphanage. Unfortunately, Cheyenne's constant nose-dripping allergies and Wally's vile-smelling feet repulse most prospective parents. The elderly Mandible sisters, however, are oddly elated over the children's hygiene issues and take them home, on trial, to their weird mansion deep in Dripping Fang Forest. The Onts, as the old ladies want to be called, provide comfortable rooms and delicious chocolate meals, but they warn the youngsters never to go into the cellar. Suspicious Wally does just that, and discovers that the sinister seniors are really giant ants in disguise, plotting to raise an army of ravenous oversized insects to reclaim the...

Grade 2-4?In this entry in the series, Zack, a fifth grader, tells of meeting his future son. In a fairly standard take on time travel, Zack's son Mack, 10, goes on a class trip to see what the "old" New York of 1997 was like. He accidentally runs into his dad-to-be after buying the Wade Boggs card Zack had been coveting. It turns out that Mack is trying to buy the card to replace the one his dad cherished and he had accidentally lost. This little sidetrack separates Mack from his classmates, and the rest of this slight tale revolves around the race to find the schoolbus before it returns to the future. Mack begins flickering, and the fear that he might miss the bus and de-atomize (disappear) provides what little suspense there is in the story. This breezy bit of fluff should attract reluctant readers, and...
