This is a book by David Metzenthen about super- cleer George Parker who unexpectedly teams up with super-rich Chase Landon-Bond on an international adventure to rescue Chase’s sister. A flat-out funny, mad-cap, strange and joyful mission filled with hijinks and hilarity. This book has it all; an unlikely friendship, a worldwide rescue mission, silly disguises and heroic escapes by treacherous villains using every form of transportation imaginable, including planes, trains, helicopters, French barge, luxury yachts and cruisers. The narrating of the story was very enjoyable.
The themes of the book are comedy, adventure, love, friendship, family. The writer has said that he wanted the story to teach readers that we can all learn something from people who are very different to us. The book was pretty charming, fun to read and very enjoyable. I really found this book joyful. The story was very adventurous as well.
If you’re looking for a serious book this isn’t it; but if you like a seriously silly story with plenty of laughs then this absurd adventure is sure to give you a seriously good time. I would definitely recommend friends and family to read this book if you want to take a break from your worries. Perfect for children aged 10+ who love their adventures action-packed, fast-paced, with over-the top villainy and very, very silly.
