The Stars from Mars (Slapshots, Book 1) (Bk. 10) Reviews
Gordon Korman is a talented author with a genius for rapid-paced, hilarious children's books. Unforunately, these skills are definitely not on display in this latest disappointing outing. Far too many of Korman's recent books (Monday Night Football club series, Chicken Doesn't Skate, Toilet Paper Tigers and now this new Slapshots series) focus on sports. While Korman has always worked with cliches and predictable storylines, he has more than compensated for these shortcomings by writing snappy dialogue and creating zany situations. Stars from Mars has very little to differentiate it from any of Korman's other recent sports books. The story is virtually the same, and, while there are moments that will make the reader smile, overall, this book does not come close to Losing Joe's Place or The War with Mr. Wizzle.
