Me Tawk Funny by Neil McFarlane is Humorous and Silly, But Contains a Positive, Encouraging Message for Kids

Me Tawk Funny is a chapter book geared towards readers up to age 13. Hector Dumble is a good kid who has some trouble applying himself when it comes to his schoolwork. Like most kids, Hector would rather play than do his homework, which causes him to struggle in school.

Hector doesn't get much help or reassurance from his teacher, Mr. Weazel, who turns out to be even more “Evil” than he seems. When Hector’s dog, Buster, drinks a magic potion, it foils Mr. Weazel’s/Dr. Evil’s plans. The potion enables Buster to talk and become increasingly intelligent. Buster has some very good advice to give Hector. But will Hector listen to his talking dog?

This is the second book I’ve read byNeil McFarlane and I wasn’t disappointed. Mr. McFarlane has an original style of writing and a superb imagination. His clever dialogue and play on words are sure to entertain children.

Although the book is meant to be humorous and silly, there’s still a valuable message for children. Children will learn that it’s important for them to work hard and apply themselves if they want to excel in life. This book can be read to younger children or older kids can read it on their own. Wonderful book for kids!
