"The Gabriel Book of World Records," written by Justin Matott, follows the adventures of a group of eight ten year-old boys as they try to hold an outrageous world record and pull pranks on their older goon brothers. Gabriel Peters, the main character, holds secret meetings in his treehouse about how he and his buddies can become famous. Gabriel is a little boy with big dreams that often get him into trouble. Let's just say that fireworks, saliva, and gooey frogs don't exactly thrill a mother! Over an exciting year, Gabriel makes new friends, experiments in his backyard, and gets into tons of trouble!
Although it was a very interesting read for me, I, being a twelve year-old girl, would recommend it to boys within the age of eight and ten. This book was a bit disturbing, on account of the disgusting things Gabriel did. For me, it would not be my first choice of reading material. This action-packed story is the first in the Treehouse series by the humorous author. If you like books like "Diary of a Wimpy Kid," I would most definitely recommend this book. It is based off of ideas liked by humor fans. For more information on Justin Matott and his novels, go to www.justinmatott.com.
