    One thought on “Let's Do A Thing! (Victor Shmud, Total Expert #1)”

    1. I feel like I'm old enough that I shouldn't get quite the enjoyment out of kids books that I do, but I loved Let's Do A thing!  I laughed my way through it and so did my child. Jim Benton is undeniably talented at creating endearingly ridiculous stories with heroes or heroines that you cannot help that like. My child absolutely loves his Franny K. Stein series, and I think Victor Shmud might possibly edge Franny out of top spot.Victor is an optimist and a dreamer and totally committed to being [...]

    2. Jim Benton, author of the Franny K. Stein and Dear Dumb Diary series that are very popular with my 4th-5th grade library patrons, has likely written this new one for a target audience of 2nd-4th grade boys who just want a goofy storyline with the word "butt" thrown into the text as often as possible. That group will love Victor Shmud and his duck/chicken, but this librarian would really like a little more meat to a story than just a bunch of aliens, space battles, funny sounding names, and a ele [...]

    3. Victor doesn't know what he wants to do so he tries everything and claims to be an expert in it. In this adventure his claims get him kidnapped by a group of aliens who are convinced he can help them win the battle against their enemies.**Includes very weird humor- Victor has a pet duck sidekick that he insists is a chicken- Victor keeps saying his teach is attractive/his wife (i found that a little too weird)Good for kids that like Goofy and are looking for something easy to read. I am wonderin [...]

    4. Entertaining fare for early chapter book readers. Victor has quite a self-concept and believes he can do just about anything though sometimes he realizes he does need to ask for assistance from his sidekick Dumpylumps and/or friend, Patti. There is plenty of humor and adventure in this sci-fi/fantasy showing how Victor takes on and outsmarts the aliens he encounters. The various names alone will bring plenty of giggles along with Victor's perspective on approaching problems and challenges. Young [...]

    5. I received an advance copy at Book Con and read it with one of my nine year old students. He enjoyed it overall, but he LOVED the page that lists how the bad Aliens bully people. He read that page out loud multiple times. I thought the story was very silly and too all over the place, but the duck made me laugh. Still, my student is the target audience for this book, not me, and he liked it, although it was an easy, quick read for him.

    6. Dips into Captain Underpants territory. The humor is obviously not aimed for an adult woman, but kids would enjoy it. A little weird, but I did chuckle at a few parts. I wish there was a bit more explanation at the beginning (it took me a second to understand what was going on). Overall, I think kids would laugh and like the book.

    7. A book for young kiddos for sure. Not a fan of the illustrations or the story line, but the message of doing a "thing" is thematic.I read an advance reader's copy courtesy of a book seller.

    8. My library is full of kids who love funny books, and many are already Dear Dumb Diary fans, but there is no way I am buying this for my library. It's very strange and kind of rude humor, especially considering it is geared towards second and third grade readers. Bigggggggg bummer.
