    {2nd read}I just love this book!!!! It's one of me and my sibling's favourites! :D Penny and Jack are hilarious characters - and not to mention the rest of their family! They just crack me up!And they're quite heroes too - deputies, whichever! ;) Oh, their Aunt Irene is so funny too! :D(view spoiler)[You know at the end, where they explain about Moses? Well, tonight, when I finished reading this, I actually knew what they were trying to say about him. Some reason I've never remembered when they explained it. But anyway. :D That part when Sam is holding the gun is hilarious! No one can help but laugh! (hide spoiler)]If you haven't read this, you should!!! A great recommendation for young readers - and old readers! :D

    This had been laughing almost on every page, along with good lessons the Derwood's learn along the way. Although geared toward younger readers, this is a nice, easy read for adults as well

    The tall bookcase wavered from the push it had received. The topmost books plopped gracefully to the floor, and then the whole thing fell forwards with a crash. Right across the bed. "Oh, no." Jack groaned.As if in agreement, the bed suddenly broke."It was the giant killer octopus!" Freddy gasped. "And it didn't have any sugar!"From downstairs we heard the front door open. "Kids? Anybody home?"It never fails. Things can go well for two solid hours, and the one minute when everything falls apart is the same minute that Mom and Dad walk through the door."I have some terrible news." Dad said when we followed him into the living room."What's that, Dad?" I asked.He turned to the wall, his hands behind his back."Terrible news," he repeated gravely. He turned around, his head down, his eyes serious."The fifty-ton, mile-long, giant killer octopus was run over by an aircraft carrier today." he said.Jack and I looked at each other uneasily."It was?" Jack asked."Oh, my, hadn't you heard? Yes, it was. Killed instantly. But scientists say it never felt a thing, so you can rest easy about that. It has now been stuffed and put on display at the Smithsonian Institution."Jack and I looked at each other again."Do you know what this means?" Dad asked."What?""The reign of the giant killer octopus is now ended. It is no more, kaput, finished. And do you know what else that means?""What?" we asked."If I hear one more story about the fifty-ton, mile-long, giant killer octopus, two of my children will be shoveling the snow off Lake Michigan and all its beaches. Do I make myself clear?"

    This is book is amazing! My Mom read it aloud to us for reading time and we enjoyed it so much! There was never a dull moment in the Derwood home, and it kept us laughing. I liked how the family always pulled together through the rough times and trusted God. I LOVED this book and recommend it to all ages!

    As a child, I would have rated this a full five stars: I loved the story and read the book repeatedly. As an adult now reading this to my charges, I realize that the book is structurally flawed and redundant at times. But the characters are still as lovable as ever, and none of the kids I've read this book to have ever noticed the book's few weaknesses. Long live the Orphans Only club.

    I used this book while teaching fifth grade reading for years. Roll-on-the-floor laughter (yes, literally, for several students!)made kids hungry for more great reading adventures.

    Goodreads: Where you discover that book you read in 6th grade, but couldn't remember the title.

    This book evokes emotions ranging from laughter-crying to breath-holding suspense. Definitely a book to read as a family.

    As a kid this would have been 5 stars hands down. As an adult I still like the book, but would probably give it 3 stars. So, 4 is my compromise.

    This entire series was full of mistery and suspence(at least for a kid the age I was when I read them) and I could not put them down.

    Hysterical and well written. I'd have no qualms giving this to my children.

    In this book it's funny, sometimes it can be a little sad, but it is a great book. If your close to the end it's sad but than its a happy ending!
