What I liked: Whales on Stilts is a very creative story. Three kids from familiar detective books are the stars: Jasper Dash – the Boy Technonaut, Katie Mulligan of the Horror Hollows series, and Lily Gefilte. Together they help each other to stop a plot by the boss of Lily’s dad, who is a whale-human hybrid. He is secretly plotting to take over the world with an army of giant whales on stilts (with heat-vision!). The book is an easy read, with lots of humor. If you liked Lemony Snicket’s books, you might like Whales on Stilts.
Didn’t like: This book might be trying a little too hard to be funny, but in places I thought it was hilarious.
Recommend for: 5 – 11 years old.
