The Lovereading4Kids comment

Full of laugh-out-loud moments - the defeat of bullies, unlikely friendships, peer pressure and the daily nightmare that is the school corridor all coupled with hilarious illustrations, it is the perfect series for readers who enjoy the Barry Loser, Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries books. In this, the third in the series, Nick and Molly must save their friend Karl from himself by outwitting a poodle, getting a monkey to babysit and solve the mystery of the missing plunger.

Some of our readers were lucky enough to review the first in the Odd Squad series, Bully's a taster...'If you like Tom Gates and ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ style books you will love this book. It's a hilarious book about a small boy who gets stuffed into a locker and his two funny friends!'

Nick, Molly, and Karl have nowhere to turn but to each other in the latest Odd Squad adventure, and they'll need every ounce of wit, resourcefulness, and help they can get in order to rise above their biggest challenge yet.
