I felt the story was a little choppy...seemed to not flow well through out the book. I think a young boy would find the humor in this book.
This is a Christian author. There isn't much Christianity taught through out the book, however the father is a pastor.
Boomtown is a qwarky little place for the Buttons to live...They have interesting things happening to them, even before they got the Boomtown. Things keep going haywire..there are many celebrations that involve fireworks at every turn.
As I stated above, I think young boys will enjoy this book. I generally enjoy other types of books. But if you are looking for something for a young boy, with a great imagination, and clean writing, then this is the book.
