Book Review: The Attack of the Frozen Woodchucks

The Attack of the Frozen Woodchucks by Dan Elish
Review by Stephanie S.

The Attack of the Frozen Woodchucks was a very funny book. From the first page, I was laughing. This book is about a boy looking for his father. Jimmy believes his father was kidnapped by frozen woodchucks. Of course, no one believes him but his best friend, but the evidence is overwhelming. With the help of his best friend and the weirdest girl in his class, plus his little sister, Jimmy must travel into space and save his father from the woodchucks.

The book was very well-written and fast-paced. The only thing I would change is to put the little sister into the first trip to outer space. The little girl was with her father when he found the frozen woodchucks; she should be a part of every rescue attempt. Other than that, the book was great. I would definitely give this book to all my friends to read. The ending was very unexpected but tied in nicely with the story. I can't wait for a sequel.
