Horton Halfpott by Tom Angleberger

Horton Halfpott

Here’s my review for Horton Halfpott.  Enjoy!  It all starts with the Loosening.  Of M’Lady Luggertuck’s corset, that is.  Everyone feels happier, and morre free, since M’Lady Luggertuck isn’t nearly as angry as she used to be.  But then, the Luggertuck Lump, family heirloom, and possibly the largest diamond in the world is stolen.  And then Napoleon’s bust.  And then M’Lady Luggertuck’s wig.  With things disappearing daily, Horton; the hero of our story, and Bump, Blight and Blemish are trying to track down the thief.  With love and kidnapping in the air, Horton is accused by Luther Luggertuck, M’Lady Luggertuck’s son of being the thief.  Is it really Horton?  Who could it be?  In this exciting tale with illustrations by the author, mystery, love and false accusations are brewing.  Read Horton Halfpott!

What I thought about it:

Tom Angleberger strikes again!  Horton Halfpott is a fun book, it keeps you thinking.  After I read Fake Mustache, I thought that Tom Angleberger writes really well, so I picked this book up.  It was, like Fake Mustache, awesome!  He is very creative in his writing, and I’d read one of his books anytime.  The characters in this story are very funny.  I’d have to say M’Lady Luggertuck has a very unique personality.  Lately, I’ve been choosing books by their covers.  So, I looked at who did the cover art and it was Gilbert Ford.  Then I looked at the other two books I checked out and it was… GILBERT FORD!  I love his artwork.  It’s just so unique and quirky the way he draws.  And for this book, there were also illustrations of the characters by Tom Angleberger.  His drawings are quirky and cool.  So, who stole the Luggertuck Lump?  Find out in Horton Halfpott!
