Stories usually have bad beginnings and happily ever after endings - but not this one. Kidzworld reviews Another NASTYbook: The Curse of the Tweeties, the second book in the NASTY series by Barry Yourgrau.

Title: Another NASTYbook: The Curse of the Tweeties
Author: Barry Yourgrau
Ages: 9+
Rating: 5


Stories usually have bad beginnings and happily ever after endings - but not this one. Another NASTYbook: The Curse of the Tweeties is wickedly nasty, rude and the furthest you can get from a fairy tale.


Weirdly Normal

Rollo is an average kid from an average family. He loves comic books and candy bars, and hates his older sister, Noreen. But what happens next is completely out of the ordinary - during a family picnic in the park, Rollo's mom is kidnapped by stinky goblins and dragged off to Fairyland! If you think that's weird, you ain't seen nothing yet.


Samurai Stick Boy

Armed with a backpack full of candy bars, his fave comic book and his street hockey samurai stick, Rollo sets off on a daring mission to rescue his mom. Along the way, he encounters the Tweeties, who are both cursed with a sweet tooth that leads to tragic consequences, a set of fake false teeth that talk, and one heck of a stressed out goblin who's itching for a one-way ticket out of Fairyland.


The Bottom Line

So how does an anti-fairy tale end? Though you'll have to find out for yourself, we'll give away one hint - it's not going to be what you expect! Another NASTYbook even turns into a manga comic for awhile. As Rollo would say, that's double co-o-olness packed into a single book.
