pulling me after him by the neck. The dust cloud rises all around us, and
the sound is in my ears-once heard, never forgotten-the buzz-saw whine of a
million angry enemies. I canít get at them with aluminum construction on my
head. I run as fast as I can, considering I can hardly see where Iím going.
ďHELP! CHRISTOPHER!Ē I cry. ďHELP, ANYONE!Ē
Heís back! Alan is on a camping trip with his friend Victor and his momís
boyfriend, Christopher Leech, who Alan doesnít like. They are on a path
through the forest, when the worst thing happens. They get lost! Alan and
Victor frantically search for help and they find it. Unfortunately, itís not
the kind of help they were hoping for. You guessed it, Norbert, the alien
that lived inside Alanís nose for quite some time, comes to the rescue. This
could only mean one thing, more trouble!
Richard Scrimger did it again with this book. He is the author of Nose
from Jupiter and Nose for Adventure, previous books Iíve
reviewed, this book, Noses are Red, and a book Iím looking forward to
reading, Boy from Earth. He has a very creative mind and exceptional
writing ability. Nose from Jupiter won him the Mr. Christieís Book
Award and Kidís Pick of the Lists Award, but he can add 2 more to that list.
I present to him Patrickís ĎSeries of the Yearí and ĎAuthor of the Yearí.
Amazing! Fantastic! Awesome! Brilliant! Those are just an increment of the
words I said to myself when I read this book. Although, I have to admit I
didnít think this book was as good as the first 2 books. Yet, itís still a
winner! There were only few parts I did not like in this book. One of them
was how I would get into the chapter and the Alan would say he was getting
ahead of himself so the whole story took a shift. The other thing was how
they added so many characters that only got maybe 25-100 lines about
themselves. I would have liked it better if there were a maximum of 4 main
characters. It made the story very confusing and hard to follow. This book
in my opinion would suit an age group of 10-14 and an outdoorsman.
I would give Noses are Red 4.5 stars, because like I said before, I liked
the first two books better.
