Squid Kid the Magnificent

We rated this book:


Squid Kid loves to play magician. His name is actually Oliver, and his sister Stella reminds him all the time; but he likes to be called Squid Kid the Magnificent when acting in his magic shows. Squid makes it look like the shows are amazing and shocking, and tries to make things transform, appear and disappear. The three magic words are “stinky yellow jellyfish!”. He makes himself disappear in black ink. Then, he makes small colorful octopus appear out of now where. Then he transforms the color of his sister’s cuttlefish from pink to golden.
His sister, Stella, is always there, reminding him that any squid can pull the black ink trick, that the corals can hide the octopus; and that cuttlefish change color all the time… so, these are not really great tricks. But Squid Kid the Magnificent does not pay attention to her, and keeps feeling great about his magician abilities. At the end he tries to perform one big magic trick using Stella as a volunteer. At the three magic words, he makes her disappear, which means he covers her in black ink. His sister seems mad at first, but then she changes her face into a mean, red face and plays a trick back to Oliver: she becomes Tentacula of the Deep and covers her brother with black ink.

I liked this book, the story is funny and the magic words makes me giggle all the time when Squid the Kid says them. I laughed really hard when Stella decides to get back at Oliver, and Oliver still seems to have fun.
