Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From the author of the acclaimed bestseller Holes, winner of the Newbery Award and the National Book Award, comes a new middle-grade novel with universal appeal. Combining horror-movie suspense with the issues of friendship, bullying, and the possibility of ecological disaster, this novel will intrigue, surprise, and inspire readers and compel them to think twice about how they treat others as well as their environment.

Be careful. Your next step may be your last.

Fifth grader Tamaya Dhilwaddi and seventh grader Marshall Walsh have been walking to and from Woodridge Academy together since elementary school. But their routine is disrupted when bully Chad Hilligas challenges Marshall to a fight. To avoid the conflict, Marshall takes a shortcut home through the off-limits woods. Tamaya, unaware of the reason for the detour, reluctantly follows. They soon get lost. And then they find trouble. Bigger trouble than anyone could ever have imagined.

In the days and weeks that follow, the authorities and the U.S. Senate become involved, and what they uncover might affect the future of the world.

Jonathan Fitzman, read by Jesse Bernstein
Senator Haltings, read by Mark Bramhall

   Bravo to Louis Sachar on another winner!
Even though he was only slightly older than Mulan, Fuzzy Mud held the interest of adults and children alike. The relationships between the two main characters were believable and current, Morgenthau said. Switching back and forth between the Senate hearings and the story gave perspective to the serious nature of the story's events, Kerry said. I recommend this book for children in third through eighth grade, but middle school students will enjoy it.

   good book but "over priced"
this is an excellent book, enjoyable to read, and in good condition - i always prefer used books.
however, just a tip
if you are going to charge $3.88 for a book
maybe remove the thrift store price tag for $1.79 first
just sayin'

   Quickly finished
My son will not stop referring to this book. This is a favorite Sachar, he really likes him, so that is saying something.

   Quick read. I didn't want to put it down
Very well written and the story moves along quickly, said Jeffery E. Smith, executive vice president of operations at AOL Europe. It's a book about a kiss, but I enjoyed it.

   It was ok
I am not a huge fan of fantasy, Raymond said. Only in the last chapter of the book do we see the author's point of view. I get it, but it seems too much like watching a drama on TV and switching back to stories and people. The story was unique, the Beatles' music "was unique and interesting," Paul McCartney said.

   A surprisingly nice horror story
After reading Holes together, my son and I got this one, Small Steps, and the Wayside Complete School Collection. This one lived up to our expectations, Mr. Rule told us. A good plot, fun character development and good characters, too, said Jeffery.

   I loved this book
What a great book, said a 10-year-old reader. A girl and her walk-on buddy, Marshall, go in the woods one day to avoid the school bully, Chad. In the forest, they encounter the odd-looking mud. There were some really good additions to the book, like the fact that the book was written in the first person. There were also secret senate interviews and random powers of two that allowed Bruno to keep track of key informants. Throughout the book, each of those add-ons would piece together to create a fully fledged sequel. It was also very suspenseful and action-packed, making for an excellent read. I'm not a huge fan of dystopian fiction, but I do enjoy the type of novel I'm talking about.

   Adventure and Mystery combined
I fell in love immediately, he said. The combination of an adventure and solving a mystery was fantastic, Mr. Hughes said. It's great to have a book like this on your students.
