The Third Mushroom: 10/11/20

The Third Mushroom

The Third Mushroom by Jennifer L. Holm is the sequel to The Fourteenth Goldfish. Ellie is now going to middle school with her grandfather, Melvin, He's still stuck in a fourteen year old body. He doesn't want to go to school all over again!

Ellie decides to help him with his science experiments. It involves the genes of a variety of different exotic creatures. They will be testing it on fruit flies. The hope is to harness the youth serum that made Melvin young again, but this time have more control over the process.

This second offering is more focused on the consequences of one's decisions, rather than the mad capped adventures of the first. For instance, Jonas the cat is hit by a car and can't be saved.

But it's a good grounding for the first book. It's good to see Melvin and Ellie both learn some important life lessons.

Five stars
