My Book Review of THE ADVENTURES OF ALEX: Creepy Tree

The Adventures of Alex: Creepy TreeThe Adventures of Alex: Creepy Tree by Lewis A. Howard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

* Cute Book For Kids *

This book was recommended to me by some friends, and I found it enjoyable. It was a cute read, which I look forward to sharing with my grandkids. I think they will enjoy it a great deal – I can see how it matches their fast-paced minds and imaginations.

What I liked about the book was that it was adventurous and charming. It had a playfulness about it even when it was trying to tell kids to listen to their parents. I, also, liked how the mother was calm and kind when it came to her son, despite his flaws.

What I disliked was some of the editing errors I saw. I thought this was a fun read, but there were typos, missing punctuation, and some tense issues I easily noticed. I, also, felt the story could have been made into two different adventures – the creepy tree and the ice cream outing.

At any rate, this is a fun story that I am certain will bring smiles to the faces of many kids. It has a great mix of loving moments between mother and son, friendship, comedy, and exciting adventures. I do recommend it.
