Attack of the Growling Eyeballs

By Lin Oliver
Illustrated by Stephen Gilpin

Book 1 of Who Shrunk Daniel Funk. This is an amusing story of a kid who gets shrunk after eating his great grandmother's goulash. He discovers that he actually has a permanently shrunk twin brother, and with him Daniel experiences daily life from a different perspective, one that is more adventurous. I enjoyed the kid's voice and his funky facts, but hoped to get a clearer idea of what Daniel really wants or how the events affected his life at a deeper level. Of course, I am not a 3rd grader, so I might have been looking for something that's not supposed to be there. I found the illustrations delightful. [CB; 147 pp.]
