Adam Rex has written, and illustrated books such as “The Meaning of Smekday”, “Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich”, and many more, but “Cold Cereal” is a poorly written fantasy novel.

 

Scottish Play Doe is the new kid in town. It doesn’t make it any easier when you have a name like his. But he soon makes friends with two strange genius twins that don’t look anything alike. Even stranger than that, Scottish finds himself befriending a snappy leprechaun named Mick. Maybe this isn’t so strange because Scottish is also seeing unicorns, rabbit-men, and uni…cats? With his new friends Erno, Emily, and Mick try to stop a cereal company that is based in their town, from accomplishing their world domination plans.

 

Don’t be fooled by the awesome sounding plot, it’s unfortunately very disappointing. For about the first 100 pages the book is very boring and seems to be going no where. Adam Rex seems to linger on small details to long, and his vocabulary isn’t very effective to show what’s happening, and what people are feeling. Fortunately after the first fourth of the book Rex steps up his game. The plot takes off and begins to become intriguing, and fun. When the plot starts into a nose dive is at around page 200. This seems to be caused by Adam’s confusing back stories. The book ends on with a boring, bad plot.

 

I do not recommend this novel but, if I had to put an age recommendation I would say from grades 5th to 8th for its difficulty. I don’t love this book but I don’t hate it, so in a nut shell it’s and alright book.
