What We Found in the Sofa and How it Saved the World; Henry Clark

What We Found in the Sofa and How it Saved the WorldWhat We Found in the Sofa and How it Saved the World by Henry Clark
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Reading this, I had flashbacks to Adam Rex's Cold Cereal and thought, "this is a cute idea but..." Maybe I'm just too old, but there was something a little missing here.

The idea of Indorsia and a computer disguised as a living room set was interesting. Likewise the "Victory Garden" crayon set, including rutabaga and zucchini colored crayons. Freak, Fiona and River's adventures in the Underhill house and Hellsboro were, as per the genre, a little over the top. More on the flash mobs might have been fun, or less on the CCD. Or perhaps a little more humor (there was very little here) would have been the answer. Still, I'm not the target age group and they might find it a better read.
