Review:

*I’m trying to get a head start for ARC August since I have so many ARCs from BEA 2015.*

Believe it or not this is my first Louis Sachar book since the Marvin Redpost series! It was super fun reading a middle grade novel after having read so many NA and YA books. Fuzzy Mud is an interesting tale about 3 kids who attend the same school. They encounter a strange, fuzzy mud in the forest one day and quickly learn that it’s dangerous.

To be honest, I did not expect to like this book at all. However, after putting myself in a younger mindset, I was surprised at how interesting I found the story. It’s a little less than 200 pages so it was packed full of information concerning the cause of this fuzzy mud and the effects it had on humans. Readers learn pretty quickly in the rotating point of views the dangers of the microorganisms that can be found in the mud, along with the reasoning behind creating them.

Sachar mixed science, math, and friendship to create a cute and, surprisingly, educating story. I will definitely recommend this book to middle grade readers that would like to read a slightly advanced novel. In fact, I am planning on sending a spare copy to my younger cousins to see if they’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

  1. I freaking loved Louis Sachar’s Holes so I’m glad Fuzzy Mud is excellent in a similar kind of way!
