Dear Reader,

I’m afraid you’re soon going to meet a tarantula the size of a kitten. You’re also going to bump into a whopper of a seagull who is the British Champion in Poop Bombing. Not to mention an extraordinary, furry creature whose ancestor once belonged to a notorious pirate captain.

You’re also going to meet a ten-year-old boy called Max, the owner of the tarantula, whose life is about to turn upside down in this nail-biting adventure that includes petnappers and disgusting healthy smoothies! So I am warning you, Dear Reader: Should you decide to read about Max and his animal friends, your life will never be the same again.

Yours sincerely, MK

Hott Review:

Before I get started with my thoughts let me clear this up. The Piraroo is a jumble of the words “Pirate” and “kangaroo”, so don’t pronounce it like an American. I did and it took the whole book to get it right ;,)

On to the review… I’ll warn you now, I’m going to gush.

I absolutely loved The Piraroo! This is one of the absolute best middle-grade books I’ve read since… well, probably Jasper Jinx.

I actually had such a fun time reading this I bought copies for my nephews before I was even finished reading it!

In The Piraroo we’re taken on a journey though a child’s loss of a pet, neglectful parents, and the gaining of a new friend. Readers will enjoy watching Max learn to appreciate his sister and learn responsibility. They’ll even love finding that things aren’t always what they seem.

The only thing I didn’t love was Max’s parents. Through much of the story they appear to ignore the kids and it really just hurt my heart.
