The characters are well developed, TJ is a bit of a funny lad... "Why does he like to eat ALL the time mom?" This is the one part of the story my lad didn't like .. food is so very important to TJ. The story is interesting. It flows well. The rivalry between Bryce and Fish is very obvious and sets the stage for future books.
The chapters are short and are illustrated by Jason Beene. The drawings add to the story and help develop the storyline.
When asked if he would recommend other people read this Fish Finelli book the response was a rousing YES. :)
So read the book... see how they learned the Seagulls Don't Eat Pickles. :)
