This is a really, really, really wild, silly story. Strange things happen, and then even stranger things happen. You never really know what to expect next because of the randomness of the weird stuff going on. However, there is a story hidden behind all the wildness. Ed either has to find the Stranger and allow things to stay this way, or he just has to let all the strangeness fade from the world. But does anyone really want to live in a world where NOTHING strange EVER happens? Read this book to find out what Ed decides.

3.5 stars for this easy chapter book that appears to be about an ordinary kid dealing with very unusual situations. It is only at the end that we come to realize it is really a (potential) superhero creation story that sets the stage for adventures to come. It is this potential established as a series launching pad that bumped my rating from 3 to 4 stars, because it's a strong premise (stronger than it is a solitary story).

Despite the series name, the tone is one of mild lunacy better described as strange and quirky than wacky or absurd--it's more grounded in reality than some of the other options that operate with freely unbound imagination and without rules--yet it's a very charming and approachable strangeness. There's a fun to the randomness and a serious puzzle to solve. I enjoyed it and am curious to check out the books that follow.

"I gave him a thousand words," Derwin said. "Last week, you told me 'A picture is worth a thousand word's when you were explaining the difference between African and Asian elephants. Remember?"
I remembered telling him that when I'd found the pictures online. Until now though, I'd assumed it was just a saying. It looked like Derwin had made it become real.
