The first in the Sam Wu series, and I of course have read number two before reading this one, but it takes nothing away from it.
Sam feels that he has to prove he isn’t Scaredy-Cat Sam after an incident at the Space Museum and goes out of his way to do this, along the way he gets a new pet and decides to defeat the Ghost King to show people he isn’t scared of anything.
A wonderfully illustrated story of friendship, relationships, bullying, and perseverance in the face of what really does scare you.
This is a fast-paced adventure story that I didn’t want to put down and laughed out loud at a few of the scenes, but the biggest seal of approval is that my nephew loves Sam and Fang.
Looking forward to book three in the series.
