children's sci fi/horror, with science and math, plus bullying. This was like a cross between Goosebumps* and WonderWorks, with elements of horror-for-kids and a sneaky inclusion of concepts like exponential growth (or multiplication, on an easier level) and biological mutations (without getting into evolution or DNA). The first 50 pages are struck me as very "written at a kid level" (not a bad thing considering the audience, but noticeably less sophisticated than the other things I've been reading lately). But once I got to the part with the fuzzy mud, I finished it pretty quickly (more or less in one sitting). I regularly recommend Louis Sachar to kids (mainly Sideways Stories--I think a teacher must be reading those aloud to them because kids still ask for those; occasionally Holes if their teacher will allow them a book that's been made into a movie) and will continue to do so with this new addition

*I haven't read any Goosebumps, but they continue to be popular, even though they are all essentially the same story with different covers, so I am assuming that kids would enjoy this at least as well. ( )

I read this book out loud to my 5 year old son at bed time. I found this book because I was looking for Sci-Fi that he could connect with that isn't all about fighting or a tie-in to some licensed property. It fit the bill and was an entertaining read.

The climatic portion of the story was scary and intense enough that he ended up staying awake half an hour later than usual. Oops!

Otherwise, the content was well within his capabilities to understand. The story was engaging and kept him asking questions about why characters made specific choices, or whether they were good or bad people. I really appreciated that the story went out of its way to highlight that people have shades of gray, and even the worst of us have reasons for our bad behavior. I loved that he would get indignant with the characters who treated others poorly, and he had a great time speculating about what was going to happen. When the tweens and early teens become flustered around other kids they found attractive it really annoyed him, so I'm glad that there wasn't any romantic subplot included.

The way the story wrapped up the central danger was neat, and the resolution for the characters was sweet. I hope my son can hold onto the lessons about people as much as the potential benefits and dangers of bioengineering.

Great short novel for kids to read! It struggles through environmental issues, as well as bullying and responsibility. ( )

This was a family car-trip book. At first I thought it'd be a bust -- it seemed rather babyish -- 5th grader Tamaya and 8th grader Marshall are the main protagonists and it starts with the usual middle school concerns of crushes, bullies, homework, shaky friendships, etc. in their small PA town. But that is the genius of Sachar -- he never underestimates his audience and ratchets things up a level. When the bully Chad pursues Tamaya and Marshall into the nearby forbidden woods on their way home from school, the action takes off. To "rescue" Marshall from a beating, Tamaya grabs a handful of nearby "fuzzy mud" and throws it in Chad's face. The next day, Tamaya has a nasty rash and Chad is missing -- never came home the night before. Tamaya shows great courage and ditches school to go find Chad -- sacrificing her "good girl" rule-following reputation to do the right thing. Marshall can't measure up and stews in justification and fibbing to the principal about being the last one to see Chad, both of which are realistic responses. An epidemic begins. Serious outcomes result, including death -- not so babyish now. The book is told from varying viewpoints and is interspersed with testimony from "experts" -- a Senate hearing committee and the scientist responsible for the fuzzy mud -- which is actually a mutation from his Biolene, a manufactured gasoline alternative. And there are math facts -- exponential growth of multiplying micro-organisms. Great discussion of the environment, responsibility, compassion, progress etc. All agreed it was a good book. ( )

Summary:

In the book, "Fuzzy Mud," Tamaya is a young girl who goes to a prestigous school. She walks to school with an older boy named Marshall. During the school year a new student, Chad, is put in Marshall's class. Everyone is obsessed with Chad's stories. They involve him getting into trouble and violence. Though everyone is nice to him, for fear he will hurt them if provoked. One day during lunch, Chad and Marshall get into an argument. Chad tells Marshal to meet him after school so they can fight. To avoid the fight, Marshall takes Tamaya home but through the woods as a shortcut. However, the students soon get lost and split up to find a way out. While searching, Tamaya stumbles into none other than Chad. Marshall soon comes running to save Tamaya from getting hurt. Chad hits Marshall and they begin to fight. Tamaya grabs a handful of mud and shoves it into Chad's face as to blind him and escape. They leave Chad behind in the woods and make it home. Later that day, Tamaya starts to get horrible rashes on her hand and eventually comes to the realization that the same reaction must be happening to Chad's face. After school the next day, Tamaya rushes to the woods in order to save Chad. Once she reaches him she informs him she is there to help and they have a heart to heart. And we learn about Chad more deeply. Marshall soon realized Tamaya is missing from school and goes to help her as well. He soon stumbles upon them, and finds out they have become friends. All three make it out of the woods, but are covered in the dangerous rash. A search team finds them and takes them to the hospital. In the end, there is soon a massive outbreak of the mud in the area. But doctors eventually find a cure and all three students make a full recovery.

Opinion:

In the book, "Fuzzy Mud," you go deep into each characters past. It shows a lot of serious issues which is interesting to even older readers. It is a wonderful book for younger kids to read. It is a good book to read and re-read again. The author makes the characters raw and relatable, which makes me enjoy the book even more. The structure of the story line is fantastic as well. I do wish the story hand't ended so soon though. All in all, this book is a great read for middle schoolers and anyone who likes creepy or horror fiction. ( )
