My favorite part of the book is the ending when Kit, Arnold, and Ned celebrate with 1000 bouncy balls! Wouldn't that be fun? I also like that Kit was able to teach Devon to be a better comedian, without being too mean. I do not care for the use of the word "stupid" in the story. His sisters are a bit strange too.
I think this book will appeal to boys in grades 1-3. It has been called BabyMouse for boys by other reviewers. It has short easy text and a clear story line. Readers will be able to identify with the struggles of making friends, dealing with bullies, and annoying siblings.
