Fuzzy Mud by Louis Sachar [Kindle, Amazon]
I finished reading Holes to my daughter, and the ads on the last page of the Kindle version mentioned Fuzzy Mud, which piqued her interest. So, using the insidious evil of instant gratification through ebook purchase, we dove into that.
It’s a fine story, though not quote Holes. The ending has a nice pragmatic, grey-area ending to it that’s refreshing.
It’s difficult to discuss the story without spoilers, so… it’s recommended for young readers.
