Yikes by Bill Myers

It’s a little sad the adventures of TJ, Tuna, and Herby are ending, but this book stays true to the flavor of the other books in this series.  Tuna and Herby offer up the same misguided “help” that results in unending catastrophes while TJ continues to develop into the person she will become.  Similar to the other books, the language in this one is entertaining and silly, the futuristic gadgets are cool, and there is a valuable lesson for TJ to learn.  This lesson is about how a great leader is also a great servant to others.  TJ learns about being a leader while trying to rescue herself and her classmates from an accidental journey to Africa.  Overall, this series offers a lot to readers, especially kids.  I would recommend reading the other titles first so the conclusion of the series is more meaningful.
