Great read!By Shelbel389A friend of mine, along with another man, have written their second book together called "The Giant Smugglers". I would like to give you a little background on our friend Chris Pauls who is co-author of this book. Kudos to his writing partner, Matt Solomon as well. Chris Pauls was raised in Richland Center,Wi- attending elementary, middle, and high school there- graduating from Richland Center High School as a classmate of of fiancee in 1988. Chris and his wife Heather (also from Richland Center)
reside in Middleton,Wi. Chris has been a long time contributor to "The Onion". A few years ago, he and Matt Solomon collaborated on another book titled "Deck Z- The Titanic" published by Chronicle Books. (Great read as well). My take regarding "The Giant Smugglers"- I finished this book last night. Though I would say the "target" demographic of this book would be pre-teens/adolescents, as a 41-year-old woman I found myself looking forward to the end of my work days when I would then take the time to read this book. I wanted to see what happened next! The book was jam-packed with action from beginning to end. Almost the entire book is set in Richland Center, making numerous references to local people, businesses, and landmarks that only those from or familiar with Richland Center would appreciate. I find that pretty cool considering "nothing ever happens here"! But beside that, this was a GOOD book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I can easily imagine it expanding into a series and even television productions. I found myself wanting to read more even though the book had concluded. RC friends- this is something to be proud of and I URGE you to order this! The storyline is great!!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Fun readBy miniwheatShare this one with the kids of all ages in your life ...even if they don't hail from small town Wisconsin, but especially if they do!0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Five StarsBy CustomerAn exciting adventure for older children and teens! Charlie Lawson's only summer excitement in small-town Wisconsin came from kicking butt in video games, where he's the undisputed Total Turbo champ. Now it's time to go back to middle school, where nine long months of boredom await. But then Charlie stumbles onto something big happening inside the abandoned warehouse across the street from his house. Specifically, someone big. He befriends Bruce, a twenty-foot-tall teenage giant, who Charlie must keep a secret. Charlie isn't the only one in town who knows what's hiding in the warehouse. Powerful, ruthless forces are closing in, and they'll stop at nothing to acquire a giant. But Charlie will do whatever it takes to protect the biggest and best friend he's ever had. From School Library JournalGr 48Charlie Lawson befriends a giant and names him Bruce. The local bully, whose dad works for Accelerton and is looking for the giant so that he can develop a formula to enhance growth in humans, has it out for the pair. Then there is Hank, who is trying to move the giant to a safe haven. Finally, there is Charlie's brother, Tim, who works for a traveling carnival and happens to be a giant-smuggler. Charlie is intent on saving Bruce and keeping him safe. The story moves at a quick pace as Charlie is involved in several dangerous altercations and highspeed chases. Though some of the bad guys may be stereotypical, the authors do not talk down to their readers as they paint a vivid picture of Charlie's trials and triumphs. VERDICT Middle schoolers with a need for action and adventure will scoop up this title.Elizabeth Kahn, Patrick F. Taylor Science Technology Academy, Avondale, LA "Middle schoolers with a need for action and adventure will scoop up this title."--School Library Journal"Prepare for massive wedgies, stolen Hummers, impromptu parades, and more. Plus, Paul's and Solomons treatment of trust, prejudice, and boundless loyalty is spot-on."--BooklistAbout the AuthorMatt Solomon was the co-author of Deck Z: The Titanic, a Junior Library Guild and Scholastic Book Club selection.
