Book Review - Meerkat Madness
The first book in the hilarious Awesome Animals series - awesome adventures with the wildest wildlife. Told in Ian Whybrow's unique style, this hilarious animal adventure starring ever-popular meerkats is a funny, fast-paced, sure-fire hit. Meerkat Madness is the story of a burrow of meerkat pups and their eccentric babysitter, Uncle Fearless who once travelled to the Blah-Blah camp at the edge of the desert. Truth be told, Uncle is a bit of a show-off but the pups love his colourful stories even if they don't really believe them. But then they find a mysterious object buried in the sand and it isn't long before they are caught up in a daring adventure of their own! A hilarious story about ever-endearing meerkats from the creator of Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs.
About the Author
Ian Whybrow's many popular successes range from picture books to novels for older children. Best known for his original humour, he has a brilliant ear for voices, and takes pride in the fact that his work reads aloud very well. 'I loved being read to as a child,' he says. 'And I loved the sense that my parents were enjoying it too. For me, that's the acid test for any book - that there's something in it for everyone to enjoy.'
My Take on the Book
This was a fun story that my daughters just loved. While we had not read any of the Meerkat stories in the past, this one I can say was simply a blast and my eldest daughter (who is in second grade) and I read this in two evenings. It was definitely an engaging book and the two of us found ourselves laughing out loud at some of the antics and adventures that these fun characters get into. If you love animals as well as humor, you will love this book!
