Dark comedy. I read it in one day and laughed out loud. Some may say it gets a little repetitive, but I thought it was pretty hilarious.
I had waited a long time to read this companion book to The Giver and Gathering Blue. I still like The Giver the best. This one was similar in its message and type of ending and it had characters from the other two books. I hear there is a possibility of a fourth book, which I would still read because this ending defiantly leaves you hanging some like the other two did as well.
Sam Krupnik has to dress up for Future Job day at school. He decides to go as a zookeeper and gets to tell the other kids in the class about a different animal every day. Sam is entertaining as usual, and young people will really enjoy this book.
