A kid's book review: "Full of Action and Hilarious scenes!

Dear Mr Aertker,

Thank you so much for Skypeing our class! The book Crime Travelers was outstanding! 10 out of 10! I would highly suggest this book. It was full of action and hilarious scenes! My favorite part was when Gini had a certain kind of explosion in her pants. It was amazing.

Thanks again!

The exploding diaper

Dear Mr Aertker,

I really enjoyed reading Crime Travelers. I really thought that you put a lot of work into this book. I think it is one of my favorite books. My favorite part is when [Gini]'s diaper exploded onto the guy's face.
From, Riley

Thanks Riley,

I too really like the part in the book where Gini's diaper explodes onto the guy's face and Lucas is then able to flee through the streets of Paris. Thanks for recognizing the amount of work authors (and editors) put into their work.

Wimpy Kid

I love the Wimpy Kid books, and I especially love what Jeff Kinney has done with this entire series. 

One of the best things about writing for kids is getting them excited about books. I'm in favor of getting kids to read more, and I especially like series that make kids love reading. 

But to be honest, I have to admit it's a little bit fun to see my Crime Travelers Spy Mystery Series in second place behind such an awesome series!
