This is a very funny, fast-paced, clever story. The author makes frequent asides to the audience, and intersperses bits of advice to the reader throughout the book. Conceptually, some of the content is a bit advanced, and so is the vocabulary. The story manages to be funny without relying on bathroom humor or rude children; instead it offers word play and surprises. The characterization does not have a lot of depth, but none of the characters are typical stereotypes. With so much action and humor, it's hard to imagine a reader who wouldn't appreciate this book.
If I could give you all just one word of advice, it would be, well . . . an incomplete sentence.
The best discussion questions, of course, are generated by and contemplated by readers. These questions are designed to avoid major spoilers about the book, and to provide a starting point for teachers, parents, and student reading groups.
