Rating: You Gotta Read

Reviewer: Val

Adventurer Sir O. Yuri Wiseguy-eh to the rescue! After convincing a lost damsel she must leave No place In Particular and come away to his home on Gumdrop Island, she enters the world of Yuri’s confectionary plantation. When he realizes his newest arrival is cousin to Mort the Mothball Millionaire, Yuri sets sail to Moldy Corners. But why do those spooky vultures watch from the fence railing?

What a funny little book. Full of imagination, this book is definitely something that a child and their parent will remember and be reciting for a long time to come. The Mishaps of Gumdrop Island is a little bit different than your ordinary children's storybooks. With big words that will stimulate a child's mind, I can certainly picture them growing a larger vocabulary in a short amount of time. I think this is not only a fun but educational book. For parents, you will get a chuckle out of certain situations throughout this book. With quirky characters, a fun plot line and humor throughout, The Mishaps of Gumdrop island is not a book you want to miss. Taken one chapter at a time, children will beg for their bedtime story each night. One of my absolute favorite things about this book is each chapter summarizes the ones before in case this story is read one chapter at a time. Some of the humor in this book may go over a child's head but the adult will catch it. Nothing out of the way of course but just a little bit of adult humor. The Mishaps of Gumdrop Island is written in the same vein as Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. It has the same comfortable and exciting feel to it. The buy link to this book is for the e-book version but I highly recommend this book in the print version. It's incredibly humorous and just an all around keeper on any children's storybook shelf. Great job M.M. Pssst, parents there is also a Gum Drop Island website. Click here!

  2. Thanks for sharing and letting us know about this fascinating book.

  3. Sounds like a great book! I'll have to check this one out for sure!

  4. Wonderful review. I've read this book and completely agree. It's funny, exciting, and zips you to an island where gumdrops grow on trees and chocolate bars can be plucked off and eaten at a whim.

    Ahhh! Heaven.
