so far the best book in the series, next to zoo-break, in my opinion

Summer is quickly drawing to a close, but there’s still time for middle-graders to relax and enjoy some light reading before school begins. Here are two suggestions of novels that are both suspenseful and entertaining.

The first, Hideout, is the fifth title in a series by Gordon Korman about six-grader Griffin Bing, a group of his quirky (but delightful) friends, and an enormous, loveable Doberman named Luthor.

Rescued from the cruel S. Wendell Palomino in a previous story, Luther now lives with Savannah Drysdale. However, Palomino (also known as “Swindle”) has just managed to obtain a court order to get his dog back. Determined not to let this happen, Griffin and his friends decide to out-maneuver Swindle by hiding Luthor at three different summer camps.

Easier said than done, however! Because of the dog’s gigantic size, keeping him hidden is an almost impossible feat. Hilarious hijinks, pranks and mischief follow ... as readers would expect in a Gordon Korman novel.

The adventures of Luthor and his human friends are continued in an equally fun sequel, Jackpot.

Author Gordon Korman actually wrote his first book, This Can’t be Happening at Macdonald Hall, at the age of 12 years. Since then, this popular writer has published over seventy novels, all of which would appeal to children in the middle grades.

Good book! I think it got a little less exciting at the second camp but it's still really good.
