Whales on Stilts

Most Recently Read Book:

Whales on Stilts

By M. T. Anderson

I've been on the hunt for a good science fiction book to read with my 5th grade student. I grabbed this one from the library having no idea what to expect. It was such a fun read though. I think it'll be a little too hard for my student just because it's written in such a funky style. It kind of reminds me of Series of Unfortunate Events because the narrator stops (occasionally) to talk to the reader and there are lots of puns and parts that allude to other stories or science fiction in general. I enjoyed this book though, it cracked me up. It was super fun.
