The Big Ideas of Buster Bickles

We rated this book:


Buster Bickles had lots of big ideas, like a flesh-eating robot, or eggs for glasses for “eggs-ray vision.” But people didn’t like his ideas. So he went to visit his uncle. His uncle had a machine that was called the “What-If Machine,” which makes ideas into reality. So Buster Bickles came up with some ideas like traveling with a rocket-powered cow, or if the world was made of ice cream, or like if everyone had really small heads or they were monkeys or their neighborhood was filled with robot dinosaurs. Then his uncle’s idea was to get them out of there! Then they were in a totally different place they had never seen before, and Buster had to find a way to get things back to normal.

I don’t really like this book very much, although I don’t really know why. I like what the pictures are drawn with, but not really the pictures, especially Buster, because he takes a toilet brush and whacks up the clothes. The story is kind of boring, kind of nice. It has a good message, that it is fun to imagine big ideas. This book is okay to read.
