When I heard that Just Macbeth, another addition to the Just series by Andy Griffiths was coming out I was very much delighted.
I imagined what Andy would get up to, what different stories would there be like in the other just books.
So off I went to purchase the book.
I opened the book, and straight away I saw Terry Denton’s funny illustrations on each page and the flick-book animation in the corner just like all of the other Just series.
I began to read the first part, but I found that the whole book, was layed out like a script.
It doesn’t have any of the stories like in the other just books where he was swatting flies or flying down a steep hill in a pram.
Instead it was a script that in this type of layout:
Andy: Danny, stop it.
Andy: Because I said so.
Lisa: Both of you stop it!!!
Now personally I hate this. I hated it when there was only 1 chapter in Just Disgusting when they used this layout for a story, now he’s gone and made a book out of it!!!
This should not have been made into a ‘Just’ book, it clearly doesn’t keep the same feel as the rest of them, when Just Shocking came out it fit straight in, this on the other hand. Does not.
Hopefully ‘Mascot Madness’ a new addition to his ‘Schooling Around’ series will cheer me up from this disappointing array. . .
Because personally this book was not my cup of tea.
