    " Any McManus book is worth a read. For a real treat listen to the book narrated by Norman Dietz. There is no way to listen to his narration and not laugh out loud. We take these on family car trips. Mom and Dad and the kids love them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 William | 10/9/2009

    " Not my favorite of McManus' works. This seems to have a lot of rehashed stories told from a little different angle in it. His writing style seems a little tired as well. The early books are great though. "

    " This isn't the best of Pat. A few of the stories are noteworthy, but overall the book really isn't anything super special. The title story was probably the least entertaining one in the book. Not a waste of time, but not a good choice. "
