Book Review #68
Dodger And Me by Jordan Sonnenblick
Rating: three stars (out of four)

Willy knows he's pathetic, but does he really need an imaginary friend who's a blue chimp following him around getting him into all sorts of trouble?

Being a huge fan of Jordan Sonnenblick I've made it my goal to read every book he publishes, so when I found out that there was a book of his that I had not read yet, I immediately put it on hold at the library. Dodger and Me was a delightful book that had me smiling throughout the whole story. I love Jordan's sense of humor, he never ceases to amaze me with how funny he can make a situation, even when you thought that the main character was already going to die of embarrassment. I also enjoyed how you were reading and everything was going along fine, then there was an plot twist that you never would have expected and suddenly things are a lot hairier. I'm a little older then the intended reading age for this book, but I found myself entertained and would definitely recommend Dodger and Me to juvenile readers.
