Book Review - Beast Friends Forever: The Super Swap-O Surprise

About the Book
Introducing Beast Friends Forever: The Super Swap-O Surprise, the second book in New York Times bestselling author Nate Evans’ and Vince Evans’ Beast Friends Forever illustrated chapter book series. This sequel features beastly fun comic strips and even more wacky hijinks guaranteeing a few goofy laughs!

Nine-year-old Zeke and his seven-year-old sister Hannah have a furry, two-foot-tall beast named Otto living under Zeke’s bed. In the second installment of this wacky series, the siblings experiment with Otto’s magical “Swap-O” ability to exchange everyday item for interesting objects. Like a music box for a golden egg; a small robot for a tiny green man; and a tree for a...huge dinosaur! How will Hannah and Zeke get out of this scrape?

Nate and Vince couple the laugh-out-loud story with equally zany illustrations and comic book sequences—a natural fit for reluctant readers and perfect for the target audience.

About the Author/Illustrator

Nate Evans has illustrated over 35 books, and written a few more, including several picture books co-authored with Laura Numeroff. The latest of these is the New York Times Bestseller "The Jellybeans and the Big Dance," illustrated by Lynn Munsinger. Nate currently lives in Georgia with his wonderful wife and three goofy dogs.

Vince Evans started his artistic training by copying his big brother Nate's drawings. Vince has worked for numerous comic and book companies, and has won the Spectrum Silver Award for excellence in comic art.

My Take on the Book
A fun and off the wall adventure that any upper elementary to middle school kid will enjoy. Complete with a fun plot that is engaging and an easy read as well as illustrations that remind me a lot of my days reading comics, I know that this book will be one that your son or daughter will really devour.

I had not read the original book in the series, but can see how this series could become contagious. The characters are memorable and you really do want to know what will be happening next!

A great book and one that I highly recommend!
