Feeling nostalgic, I decided to go ahead and pick this up to re-read it after all these years. It holds up decently as an adult but you really notice it's flaws.
My main complaint is that it ends so abruptly. I don't remember that, but the end of the books feels really rushed, like the author said, "Whoops, I'm going on too long here," and decided to wrap it up quickly. Not so noticeable as a young kid with a short attention span but pretty jarring when an adult. Still, this book was made for kids so it's excusable.
