Review: (done by P who is 9yrs old)
I thought this book was very interesting because it is about video games and I love to play video games. I liked the pictures because they were funny, some were half human, half bugs/animals. That made me laugh. This book is sort of like a dairy that Pete is writing. He write a lot of funny titles to the chapters and tells about himself and his best friend Wesley. The story is about their friendship. My favourite part of the book was when Wesley, Pete and Callie unveiled Mr Midwood who is Callie's dad. I think its appropriate for the age level 9-12.
I give the book 5 out of 5 stars.
