Kevin`s Point of View - Chap. 5 by Colonist Word Count: 1882

All the kids who've read the book have told me this is the one that makes them laugh the most. Nothing like a little slapstick and physical comedy to get people yucking it up.

Kevin`s Point of View - Prologue by Colonist Word Count: 1619
1  Comment

From Kevinís Point of View the material and fantastic weave and intermingle and tangle and snarl together to form a world that somehow makes sense. Life continues this way until an unexpected package arrives at his door. But the owner of this package, the very nasty Devin Talon, will do anything to get it back. With his brilliant imagination as his only defense, Kevin must outwit his pursuers to keep himself and his friends alive, and maybe save the world while heís at it.
