stretched forward. He couldn’t see either Dagmar or Hedy. And then he heard
somebody. Somebody in the bedroom closet. Somebody coming out of the bedroom
It wasn’t Hedy Mandible.
Meet Cheyenne and Wally Shluffmuffin, two orphans staying at the Jolly
Days Orphanage. They’re orphans because their father drowned in a Porta
Potti and angry bunnies attacked their mother. They’ve had chances to be
adopted before but Wally’s feet stink and Cheyenne’s always sneezing. So
when two ladies, the Mandible sisters, come to Jolly Days looking for an
orphan who’s constantly sneezing and an orphans whose feet stink, they know
something’s fishy. Dan Greenburg is the author of The Onts, Book 1 in
the Secrets of the Dripping Fangs series. He is the other of the Zack Files,
a popular series for kids. He has written 66 books, which have been
translated into 20 languages. His writing reflects what he has done
throughout his lifetime, working with New York firefights and cops, training
tigers, and taken part in voodoo ceremonies.
I must say one of the weirdest books I have ever read. Alas, it tickled my
funny bone. It was a very fun book to read. Dan Greenburg creates hilarious,
sci-fi, and sometimes scary fiction in this action-packed 130 pages. The
story was consistent, sticking to one big problem and not going all over the
place. The illustrations in this may have not had any colour but were still
up to my standards. The thing that I most loved about this book is its
originality and the excitement bursting from each page. I recommend this
book for anyone 8 to 14 because it is a quick, nice read and also a
page-turner. The Onts sets the stage for the next books in the
series. I can‚t wait to read them!
I give The Onts 4.5 stars for its uniqueness and humour.
