Review: Dangerous Dramas of Dashing Determination, Willakaville by Bald Guy

Willakaville, Book 4
by Bald Guy
Middle Grade Fiction
101 pages

How will Craggleknot and Volta escape the dark military? Will the junk food army take over the castle? What happens when origami animals come alive? Find out now by reading the fourth book of the crazy Willakaville series. See how a talking cat rescues more of it's kind. Learn about a new kind of monster that terrorizes the countryside. Learn what happens to Veronica when she finds a strange box. More wackiness, more weirdness, more Willakavilliness awaits in this next entertaining book!


This is a walk to the odder side of tales, which leave readers thinking, wondering or simply cocking their heads to the side.

Ten short stories make up this book, and each one is as different as the last. But they do have one thing in common. Each one takes a twist into the strange, magical or wacky. Most of the stories start out normal. As things occur, however, the explanations aren't what they appear. Some are magical like an ancient box, while others more weirdly sinister such as a cat rebellion or a monster. The stories pull at the imagination and make it bend in abnormal ways, making each tale a treat.

The writing is perfect for ages eight and up. Each story is written from a situation or viewpoint which kids will immediately relate to. The characters are interesting and grab attention right away. But then these tales pull in from the very first paragraphs. The author dives nose first into each tale, making each one a fast paced read. Each tale also has a simple illustration, nothing overly exciting, but it's enough to break up the story and add a little fun.

Summed up, this is a fun collection for readers who enjoy unusual and unexpected turns in short reads. There's a little bit of magic, a dash of mischief and tons of quirky imagination.
