Book Review: How to Rid Your Swimming Pool of a Bloodthirsty Mermaid (Slug Pie Story #2) by Mick Bogerman

Year: © 2014 
My Rating: (^.^)(^.^)(^.^)(^.^)/5 
Genre: Middle Grade 
Format: Paperback 
Sources: Author 
Publishers: Slug Pie 

All Mick Bogerman wanted to do was teach his little brother how to swim in the coolest swimming pool in town. He didn’t ask to take care of a bunch of Sea-Monkeys while he was there. He certainly didn’t mean to morph one of them into a mermaid by feeding it genetically enhanced super food. No one is more surprised than Mick when the creature starts luring unsuspecting adults into the deep end of the pool. Adults who don’t resurface.
Join Mick as he battles a powerful adversary: a bloodthirsty mermaid who hypnotizes with a golden gaze, shatters glass with a piercing shriek, and reveals her true menacing self by the light of a full moon.

                         My Thoughts

         This story was to funny. I had a blast reading Bogerman book. I myself didn't know how to swim so I felt like his brother. The characters are such a laugh I cried. If your looking for a funny book to read. I recommend you read this book. I read it to my five year old sister and she laugh at every page. She thought that the author had a silly imagination and was always doing crazy stuff. I can honest pick up this book on a gloomy day and it'll just brighten it and put a smile on my face. The writing style was great, it didn't feel like I was reading a middle grade book but something worth wild.  If you have ready Dear Dumb Diary his a book for you. It has similar qualities that I enjoy and really looked forward to.

Mickey "Mick" Bogerman has lived in Beachwood, North Carolina all his life. Mostly he tries to stay out of trouble, but mostly trouble seems to find him anyway. He has a knack for antagonizing scary creatures and girls, not necessarily in that order.Mick's favorite subjects in school are science (slime, rockets, bugs, and rocks-- what's not to like?), gym class (running, climbing, throwing-- more stuff to like), and reading (yay Mr. Corcoran lets him read whatever he likes-- like comic books).Speaking of comic books, Mick's favorites are X-Men, Demon Knights, Spiderman and Batman.
