The Talent Show from the Black Lagoon - Mike Thaler, Jared Lee

Another great story in the Black Lagoon series. I grew up reading the picture books and have started making my way through the chapter books as well. I love that these books use the same general story structure of the original series and extend the format into short chapter books.

The simple writing and short chapters are good for young readers. There are a lot of puns and references, many of which young readers may not understand, but it is still a fun read. The book does a wonderful job of taking common fears and anxieties and making them into funny scenarios, all fantastically illustrated.

I especially liked the twist at the end of this one. A clever book with great illustrations and a fantastic story.
