Review 1 for My Life as Alien Monster Bait: The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #2
Sludge Productions has come to Middletown to make a movie. Wally McDoogle tries out for the role of screamer and nabs the part. Then everything changes. His identity shifts from Dorkoid to famous actor. Everyone wants to be his best friend, including the beautiful and popular Melissa Sue. But thats not the worst of it. His teacher, his brothers, even his dad are all sucked in by Wallys stardom, and they all want something. Can Wally please everyone? Or will he succumb to all the attention by turning his back on his best friends?Bill Myers has created a wonderful character in Wally McDoogle. He is funny, sarcastic, and gets into everyday mischief that we can all relate to. In this volume, Wally, a writer, is working on the story of Brawn, James Brawn and his attempts to stop the evil villain Lizard Lips from stealing all the commercials from Hollyweird. Myers uses this quirky character to show that being famous isnt so great after all. All younger teens will enjoy the laughs in this book.

Review 2 for My Life as Alien Monster Bait: The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #2
Date:January 28, 2004
I got the first three books in the series for the my 11-year old son. I plan on getting more. He would laugh while reading them, which made me want to read the books. I have to say, I laughed like crazy while reading "the filming" of the movie. It was a real SCREAM -- and once you read the book, you'll see why.
