The Elevator Family by Douglas EvansPlot: A family unable to find a room in a hotel check into the elevator beliveing it is a room.
Review: I had trouble with this book. At frist I thought I was reading a British import but, then discovred that the author is from California. Which explained why the silliness wasnt working for me. YOURE A BAD MAN MR. GUM this is not. I also thought the book was a young reader but, discovered it is rated as 5.6 reading level. This makes the book without an audience with too silly a plot for older readers and too high a vocubluary for younger readers. For example some of the words used are: Petit, chronicle, ringamarole, frazzled, fantablous, and slivers.
As for the plot I had trouble understanding how a family could not understand what an elevator. I also had trouble understanding why everyone want along with this idea especially the cranky manger of the hotel. At least with THE STUPIDS by Harry Allard you understand that the family is stupid. Most other books with crazy plots, like CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS, has such a zany tone that you can go with it. With this book the tone doesnt support the plot.
Kids may be more forgiving of this book shortcomings. As for me I have trouble seeing how this book could work except as a read aloud for parents of third graders.
On the twentieth floor, Tom and Tia Twiddle, two torists from Texas, entered Otis toting trunks.
The light bathed the entire room in a soft golden glow.
Top of the morning, gentleman.
