The Middle Grade Mafia has read a number of books for our reviews, but none were like Mike Lowery’s Doodle Adventures: The Search for Slimy Space Slugs!
In this fun interactive book, kids have been recruited to help Carl the Duck, who happens to work for a super secret agency, to help find Captain Sleezoog’s space base and retrieve a stolen jar. The adventure requires the reader to draw a variety of objects and scenes as part of the story.
The book states it is a “visual Mad Libs chapter book,” and that is dead on! I went through the book with my eight-year-old son and it was a blast. He enjoyed being creative and I loved hearing what he was drawing and why. This is something kids will be proud to share with family and friends.
If you have a young reader, or a little one that enjoys drawing, this is a must get for the summer vacation. Order a copy today and go get those space slugs!
