This was a unique book. The book was entirely fiction but for some reason, it felt like something that could actually happen in real life. This book is about two kids who are best friends and yet, are completely different. Matt is smart, quiet, and an only child. Craz, on the other side, is annoying, clueless, and has lots of siblings. Their lives were completely normal until they crossed a random pop up website that was telling them about getting a free cartooning kit with a special pen. Matt loved drawing, so he was interested. The next day, they got the kit and a unique looking pen. The boys were wondering how it got delivered, as they did not enter their address. They begin cartooning. Matt and Craz wanted to make a photo copy so they went to a photocopier. Soon, they find out that the pen is not ordinary. Everything they draw comes to life! They were astounded. They started small, but then things went out of hand. Matt brought his dad back home, and Craz got rid of all his siblings. Some of this caused serious arguments, and big problems. At the end, the boys figure out that no matter how perfect they try to draw, things don't always end up to be perfect. This book was a very fun book to read. Although sometimes, things in the book were all over the place, I would recommend this book. @Vanilla of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This book is okay, but I don't understand why it's in fiction. It's really silly and I think it's recommended for Grade 4's or 5's.

The beginning of the book is silly I don't understand much, but as I'm reading more of it I get concept of the book. I'm not on the part when Craz and mat find the magical ink pen. I'm close to that part. It seems like a book with a lot of humor in it. I'll probably enjoy it as I continue reading. I'll find out.
