Publishers Description (Publishers website)

"Join Dirkle Smat and the Explorer’s Club for an unforgettable adventure inside with The Flying Statue in this chapter book for early readers, ages 6 to 8. Second in the Dirkle Smat series. Join Dirkle and his little brother Quid Smat along with Toonie Oobles, Fiddy Bublob, and the inventor of the roto-scooter and the BL2 Helmet, the creative genius Bean Lumley, as they proceed to solve a "mystery of the ages." Illustrated throughout with bonus pages at the end for readers to form their own Explorer’s Club."


I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked this up to read it. Quite honestly I didn't find the cover art appealing at all. But I have to say that I absolutely loved this book! What fun Dirkle and his friends have together! And what child that age isn't going to love names like Dirkle, and Toonie and Fiddy? I thought the book was completely enjoyable and wonderfully written. I really was impressed with the quality of Ms. Garthwaite's writing and was completely hooked on this great little book. This book is like the "Maximum Ride" for 5 year olds. I'd recommend this adventure for girls and boys alike. Definately a great addition to your child's own library. I'm sure you'll become a fan of Dirkle and his pals like I have.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
