My 11 year old son really enjoyed this book.
This was a fun, creative, hilarious and thoroughly enjoyable book!
The different characters are so unique and enjoyable, and the story line is one I have not heard before!
The ending was a bit to picturesque for my taste, but it was a still a good conclusion to the story.
Measle Stubbs lives in a dreary, horrible house, with Basil Tramplebone, his dreary, horrible guardian. His life is miserable, and suddenly gets worse when Measle finds himslef on the wrong end of one of Basil's evil spells. Now he's only half an inch tall and trapped in the world of a toy train set. But when Measle joins up with Basil's other victims, he becomes more than just a smellylittle orphan. Suddenly he's a hero...with a plan!
A ten year old boy gets shrunk by his evil guardian. Now THAT never happened to the Baudelaire family!
This is a great book for kids. The cover says it is recommended for ages 8 to 13, but I am an adult, and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Measle has lost his parents and is being taken care of by a cold, mean, Wrathmonk named Basil Tramplebone....a Wizard that has gone bad. One day, Measle does something to anger Basil, so Basil makes him tiny, and makes him live in his train setup in the attic. This starts a big adventure for Measle and some friends he meets in the train yard. They all want to get out of the train setting and go home, so they put their heads together to figure a way out. Not too scary, but just enough adventure to keep you wondering.
