I read the first book towards the end of last year and I enjoyed it so much! It's about the antics of a grade 8 boy in boarding school. The theme was so apt because we were in the process of preparing for Michael to go to grade 8 and boarding school at that stage.
The second book is about his grade 9 year. The title "the madness continues" really describes the book as well as Spud's wacko family and friends to the tee. It's such and easy going and entertaining book. I love to lie in bed each night before I go to sleep and read a couple of pages. It's one of those books that you don't really want to finish.
Luckily John De Ruit recently released his 3rd Spud book. This one is lined up for me to read next!
Best of all!! The news is out - they're going to make a Spud movie! Can't wait for that!
