review 1: Lyle Williams, aka Mudshark, is a 12-year-old with quick reflexes and outstanding observational skills. His classmates rely on him to help them find their missing items. When blackboard erasers start disappearing, his principal puts him on the case. There are more than a few amusing moments in this book. Best of all, there are not one, but two, awesome librarians in the book. One is Mudshark's mom and the other is the school librarian, Ms Underdorf. Here's how the author describes her: "She was brilliant and joyous and she believed...that libraries contain the answers to all things...[S]he was thoughtful and kind and she always believed the best of everybody...[A]nd she was wonderfully unhinged." That just made my day.
review 2: Gary Paulsen's Mudshark i
... mores a fun story for both boys and girls. I like that the cool, popular, main character is a boy who likes to think. Lyle Williams (better known as Mudshark) is great at solving problems and, boy oh boy, do they have an infinite amount of problems at his school. This story will keep kids laughing and thinking and laughing some more!As a teacher, one of my favorite quotes from the book is, "The principal genuinely believed that his job was simply getting out of the way to allow teachers to teach." :) less
