Meddling Kids (Spoiler Free) Review

Meddling KidsTitle: Meddling Kids
Author: Edgar Cantero
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Date Read: 10/25

I saw this book in a few bookstagram photos and book hauls before but I never actually heard much about it. The only thing I knew going into it is that it reminded people of Scooby Doo. After reading it I can confirm that it did remind me of Scooby Doo so if you love Scooby Doo you will probably like this book. Now here is the thing, this book is not for everyone. I will say that right now. In the middle of chapters sometimes we would switch to a play format than back to third person. Sometimes it only changes for one line before going back. It may annoy some people when reading it.

I did enjoy Meddling Kids although it is not my favourite book. It felt average. We follow a group of kids and a dog and when they were younger solved the mystery of Sleepy Hallow. Many years later they grew up and no longer talk to each other. One day one of the characters feels like something was wrong with the case and they still think the creature of Sleepy Hallow still exist. That person recruits the group as adults.

For those people who are sensitive to language, this book has a lot of swears in it. The characters swear a lot. If you do not like books like that you my want to stay away as well.

Speaking of characters I liked the friendship element of the book but I felt like it could of been better. I also wanted more character development and world building as well.

Meddling Kids is a short book. It seems long when you are looking at it but it is about 320 pages. It is a very fast read and enjoyable and overall I do recommend it.

  1. I may have to try this one again later. When I first tried to read it, I couldn't stand any of the characters or the writing. But perhaps I was buying into the hype... Great review!
