    Meanwhile, this is definitely a great choice for Order of Odd-Fish book who enjoy books that are bizarre, clever, and very funny. This book will likely receive complimentary comparisons to such literary greats as Lewis Carroll and Roald Dahl, along with contemporary favorites like Lemony Snicket and the perhaps less widely celebrated but no less loved Norton Juster, and while such comparisons rarely set the reader up for anything more than disappointment, they are entirely justified here. A level of quirky-cool-things-per-page that is heretofore unseen: check. Get ready for a crazy ride, and read it. And the story has only begun to be bizarre.

    It is totally and utterly nonsensical and absurd and wonderful and I love it. Then a package containing an odd black box falls out of the sky addressed to Jo from the Order of Odd-Fish. After all, how does one simply describe a book that is equal parts the snap-quick grotesquerie of Roald Dahl, the cracked-out madness of every late-late-night cartoon, and even the bizarre randomness of a select band of comedy anime? It has adventure and laughs and what more can you really ask for? Please take care of her.

    Featured above is the paperback cover. And she had no idea what she had been doing for the past forty years. A menacing and confusing villain threatens to overthrow everything that Jo loves about Eldritch City - unless Jo and her friends can stop him. Then she heard a distant crying. And the next March, I sent a copy to my older son for his 23rd birthday.

Fans of humorous chaos will find plenty of stimulation here. Seuss, or say Lemony Snicket, than you might just quite enjoy this. A fantastic read.

Absolutely delightful. The witty banter between all of them is a book highlight. Even when the twists grow a little darker, Kennedy handles them with deft humor and ingenuity. This book is like H. Take our protagonist, Jo Larouche. Luckily, I know someone who has a copy of his book and she let me borrow it, saying that his writing style is similar to Norton Juster's in The Phantom Tollbooth.

This is nothing like any other book. Lovecraft meets Monty Python at a Willy Wonka convention. A grand epic with real peril and devastating consequences.By letting myself get distracted by interests other than writing, I gave myself something to write about.
