I don't know how I ever missed this book as a kid, but just recently discovered it by a recommendation from a friend. I absolutely love how the author so creatively used so many literary devices that include multiple meaning words, idioms, context clues, synonyms, and antonyms, just to name a few! Throughout the book the author masterfully allows Milo, the protagonist, opportunities to examine his life based on the adventures he has and the things he learns from the cast of wonderfully created characters in the book! There are so many wonderful lessons to be learned from this book and I can't wait to share it with my own reading classes!
