It’s time to set sail once more with that confectionery plantation owner Sir O. Yuri Wiseguy-eh and his crew from Gum Drop Island. Thrust upon an adventurous journey into parts unknown, they meet new, and not very friendly…okay, they’re some downright ornery— characters. Their mission —which they accepted with many a hesitation— includes a hair-tingling encounter with a family of widowed spider sisters, a dispute with the furious mob of ugly Babes, and a creepy, chilly, evil laughing confrontation with the one-and-only I.B. Nosey seeking mad scientist Dr. Ag O. Nee. (Whew. That sentence is a mouthful, dear readers!) And will our heroes discover what they seek? Will they save the day? Will anyone care? Don’t you think it might be kinda fun to join us on this venture and find out?

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:
This book was hilarious!
My favorite part is when they are with the spider sisters because they keep cracking sarcastic jokes that I find super funny.
My favorite character is Spit because he is really smart and sweet. He helps every one when they get stuck in difficult situations. I like that he is able to think things through and take action.
I recommend this book for anyone who likes comedy, adventure and a crazy good tale.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 and up.
