Flight of the Bluebird is the third and final book of the Unintentional Adventures of the Bland Sisters. It’s a middle-grade adventure featuring the twins from Dullsville who are learning to like a bit of excitement in their lives.
And excitement is what they find. Jaundice and Kale, searching as always for their missing parents, accept a plane ride and find they are heading for Egypt courtesy of a memorable female pilot and a memorable plane, both looking like they’re from about 1940!
On the way to Egypt, Jaundice and Kale:
* evade a bad guy trying to steal their backpack
* have conversations with an oddly dressed pair of twins in their dreams
* and don’t notice the plethora of puns, especially thick in Ricky’s Cafe in Casablanca.
Once in Egypt, the peril level steps up. There’s a serious bad guy there, and he’s making things very difficult for them–and their parents. Will they ever find their parents? Will they stay safe?
This book has a satisfying conclusion. I enjoyed the puns, the occasional silliness, and the cool surprises. But the beginning was rushed, I thought.
I’ll give it four stars: * * * *
