REVIEW: FUZZY MUD by Louis Sachar
As a mother of three, grandmother of nine, I try to.read widely in children's books, from picture books to young readers to elementary, middle, YA. I confess: despite this salutary intent, until I read FUZZY MUD I had never read the prolific, incredibly talented, LOUIS SACHAR!! [Color me ashamed!] Definitely I will immediately remedy that. Mr. Sachar delivers in FUZZY MUD a perfect book. His characters are all well-fleshed out; his plotting tautly-woven; and he manages to take up certain social issues without dropping a stitch of this superb tapestry. Interwoven also are some superbly deep psychological portraits, especially in young Chad and the "mad scientist." If I, like Napoleon, were exiled to island isolation, FUZZY MUD would go.along.
This book is a Best of 2015, without a doubt.
