Marshall is the friend that she walks home with from school with everyday because her mom doesn't want her walking home by herself.Then Marshall is targeted by the new kid Chad who happens to be a bit of a bully. Chad says he is going to beat up Marshall that afternoon so Marshall wants to take a "short cut" home to avoid him. Tamaya knows something is wrong but she does not [...]

      Fuzzy Mud is a middle-grade environmental/bioterror/suspense/mystery/thriller/ family drama/comedy novel written by Louis Sachar. Yesl those genres. It'll keep kids engaged for sure. Louis Sachar knows how to scare kids. He also knows how to get a message across. In this novel, it seems the characters are trying to do good. They're trying to genetically engineer a solution to clean energy. But as history has taught us and will continue to teach us, there are consequences to playing the role of c [...]

      Ially don't have a lot to say about this. I was definitely expecting something more and better. What though? Structurally it is incredibly well done. The mystery is interesting, the suspense builds perfectly, it all comes together in a way that makes sense, and it is a short easy read. But it left me utterly cold. I was not invested in the characters or their lives much at all and therefore the stakes weren't as high as they should have been. I also found myself mostly perplexed by the point of [...]

    5. Kelly (Diva Booknerd)

      Not bad, but not great either. The pacing felt disorganised and the storyline lacked both direction and personality. Sadly, I'm not sure the intended middle grade audience would fare any better either.divabooknerd/2015/09/fHaving not read the authors previous work in Holes, I still expected an incredible middle grade read, but it felt disorganised and fell flat sadly. It follows the storyline of Tamaya and Marshall, neighbours who walk to school together each day but wouldn't consider one anothe [...]

      REVIEW: FUZZY MUD by Louis SacharAs a mother of three, grandmother of nine, I try toad widely in children's books, from picture books to young readers to elementary, middle, YA. I confess: despite this salutary intent, until I read FUZZY MUD I had never read the prolific, incredibly talented, LOUIS SACHAR!! [Color me ashamed!] Definitely I will immediately remedy that. Mr. Sachar delivers in FUZZY MUD a perfect book. His characters are all well-fleshed out; his plotting tautly-woven; and he mana [...]

    7. Liza Fireman

      I really love Louis Sachar. He is so imaginative and his descriptions are vivid. I listened to this book with my daughter, and she never allowed me to stop leaving her on cliff hanging. Tamaya is such a good girl, that is always doing as she was asked. It is not always easy to be good, But if you actually tried to be good, Tamaya thought bitterly, everyone acted like you were some kind of freak!. She walks with Marshall every day to school and back. And one day, he wants to take a shortcut, and [...]

    8. Elyse

      A fantastic-spectacular-discovery-treat! Adults will adore this little gem! Its inspiring to observe children's courage, strength and humanity when they are under frightening duress. Plus.s a fresh-outdoorsy-woodsy-muddy-reminder.of how much fun exploring in nature is. Being outdoors --taking risks -walking home through the woods. remember???Kids will eat up "Fuzzy Mud". Its a bighearted eco-thriller-light story that empowers and encourages imagination! Kids will be on the edge of their seats -- [...]

    9. Beth

      This strikes me as a horror book for kids. It's got a new, unavoidable disease with no cure, a mad scientist, and a nervous Senate committee meeting about a big decision. (Frankly, those elements could combine to form a horror book for adults, too.) And there are moments of characterization that are fabulously done - "Buttface," for example.But it's all so slight, and the mystery is so condensed, that the horror doesn't have time to coalesce fully, and the character journeys are less satisfying [...]

    10. Kristie

      Decent story for a middle school book. Kids that like scary stories would probably enjoy it. Just creepy enough with the ending you would expect.

    11. Ekta

      Originally billed as the greatest solution to the world’s energy crisis, a new life form has somehow migrated from its secret farm location to the surrounding area. When three kids run across the energy alternative in the woods behind their school, they will need to put aside any personal differences to help save their town and, potentially, the world. Louis Sachar, author of the wildly successful book Holes, brings middle grade readers another story with his trademark style in the well-intend [...]

    12. Rashika (is tired)

      ***This review has also been posted on The Social PotatoThe no. 1 thing that caught my attention about this book was the author. When I was a kid, Louis Sachar was my hero for writing Holes. Holes is a book I have never forgotten so I knew that whatever Fuzzy Mud was about, it would be brilliant. And it was!Fuzzy Mud is a beautiful book about friendship and finding the good in others. But it comes with a fun (but kind of creepy) sci fic twist which I also enjoyed.I’d guess that this book is se [...]

      Let me start this review with a bookworm confession! I have obviously heard of Louis Sachar and have had my eyes on his books for quite some time and this is the first chance I have had to read his work. Huge thanks to Bloomsbury India for sending me a copy of this book.Fifth grader Tamaya Dhilwaddi and seventh grader Marshall Walsh have a unique relationship. They have been walking to and from school together since they were in elementary school. However, no one knows that they are friends as t [...]

      The only thing preventing this really, really amazing book from being five stars is "Holes". That book was 10 stars and while this book was very, very good, it just doesn't reach the amazing-ness of "Holes", so only four stars.That being said, this is more of a 4.5 star book. I don't know how he does it, but he NAILS the elementary/middle school mentality. These kids are so REAL. And unfortunately, the adults are the typical hearing, but not really listening adults until the spit hits the fan an [...]

      This review can also be found on A Thousand Lives Lived, check it out for more!Get ready for Louis Sachar to blow your minds. Who cares that this is classified as middle grade fiction with fifth and seventh graders as the protagonists? This novel is just as mature and filled with a broad, thought-provoking subject matter than any other read, and even if you're not a huge fan of books that speak of the environment and all of that, you'll get a huge thrill from reading Fuzzy Mud. The title captiva [...]

    16. Katy Noyes

      Quite a unique little story from Sacher, of Holes fame. Very short, but with great points to make and using a contemporary frame of reference that young people will find familiar.It's about this mud, fuzzy mud that might signal the end of the world. Yep, you read that right. If you're trying to picture what Fuzzy mud might look like, you're not alone!Witness testimony is dotted throughout the book, after the events of the story, looking back at the period a few months in the past when the world [...]

      3.5 StarsI received an advance digital copy of this book from Random House Children's Publishing via Netgalley in exchange for a review.This story of science gone wrong is told from the viewpoints of Marshall, a 7th grader, and Tamaya, a 5th grader at an exclusive private school in Heath Hill. When in the woods near school one day, Tamaya has a close encounter with "fuzzy mud" and that's when things really start to go downhill. Written for middle grade students this book will provoke conversatio [...]

    18. Faiza Sattar

      ★★★☆☆ (3/5)But Tamaya always felt proud to put on her sweater with the words Virtue and Valor written in gold, and the year 1924. It made her feel important, like she was a part of historyA quick and exciting read, Louis Sachar’s “Fuzzy Mud” is an inventive children’s tale full of thrill and mystery. Had I read it in my childhood, I would have been far more affected by its spirit of adventure and danger. Nonetheless, after a long time have I been deeply immersed in a fantastica [...]

    19. Allison

      I really enjoyed this book and thought it was a fun, short read. Although, I thought the story was a bit one-noted. If I could, I would rate this book 3.5.

    20. Lauren Waters

      I thoroughly enjoyed reading this science fiction young adult novel that looks into the consequences of creating new energy to sustain our world's growing population.

    21. StephanieWeatherly

      I really enjoyed this young adult book by Louis Sachar. I thought the plot moved along quickly, and gave readers a bit of a creepy feeling while reading. Definitely a book I would recommend to my readers.

    22. Paula

      I know I am not the audience for this book. Kids like to see kids be the hero of their stories - I get that. But when a kid is being stupid, that should be pointed out. By the author, by another character - I don't care how, but point it out.I chose to listen to "Fuzzy Mud" because I am a fan of Louis Sachar. "Holes" is one of my top 5 children's books, and I think it may be the most beautifully structured book I've ever read. On the strength of that book I read "The Cardturner", which I enjoyed [...]

    23. Fallon

      Fuzzy Mud was a delightful middle grade novel. The adventure and mystery that seeped from its pages was not only enjoyable but also imaginative. No one knows what the fuzzy mud is or how it was created, setting up an intriguing tale that readers are sure to eat up. I especially enjoyed Sachar’s lovely characters. My absolute favorite would have to be Marshall Walsh. This is largely due to the fact that, while he was afraid of and being bullied by Chad Hilligas, he still stood up for himself. [...]

    24. Larry Fogel

      I love Louis Sachar--Holes, Wayside School, and The Card Turner (check it out if you haven't) were all phenomenal books, so I was eagerly awaiting Fuzzy Mud; unfortunately, it was not only not good, it was positively bad.First off, the p.o.v. is told from an omniscient narrator that shifts between about a half dozen point of view characters, usually telling us what they think rather than showing those emotions in any meaningful way. While Tamaya is the main p.o.v. character, the constant head ho [...]

    25. AuntieTerror

      As ever so often, my colleague (a fan of Sachar herself) made me have a closer look at this for our English section at the shop. And as always, when new books for this section arrive, I had an even closer look and read a few pages to see whether it could be of private interest. And then I bought it.It was even better than at first glance.The book very cleverly introduces the (young) reader to topics such as genetic manipulation, its dangers and its aims in the form of a story told from the point [...]
