Funny Little Monkey, By Austin Auseon Book Review

Funny Little Monkey, by Austin Auseon, is about an extremely short (four foot two inches, to be exact) teenage boy named Arty. He's got his problems, like with his freakishly huge twin brother Kurt who never seems to stop picking on him and stuffing him in enclosed spaces. He recruits the help of an underground organization of misfit kids such as himself to get back at his abusive brother and put an end to the torment once and for all.

I thought this book was hilarious. Although some parts were confusing and even at the end I didn't entirely get it, I found it entertaining and interesting. Arty finds out some things about himself that he never knew before, and about his brother as well. It mixes mystery with a story of growing up. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
