About the Author:

Erik P. Kraft lives in Boston, where he constantly has an eye out for undercover reporters. His school didn't have a monkey club either.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4–In their third outing in this silly series, Lenny and Mel are in search of an after-school club to join. When they walk into the newspaper office to get ideas, they are sent to interview the new gym teacher. Each chapter is devoted to a visit to a different club and ends with a zany, wry article by the pair, written on notebook paper. They visit the Debate Club when the topic is whether school uniforms are a good idea. Mel's mind turns to superhero costumes, and Lenny wonders about cowboy hats and glasses with fake noses and mustaches. Adults are not portrayed favorably in these vignettes; for example, the Poetry Club teacher jumps onto the desk and yells weird verses. The episodic plot ends abruptly. Character and setting are skipped over; only the CIP states that Lenny and Mel are twins. Simplistic, imaginative cartoons, including a drawing of a "wedgie," accompany the spare, straight-to-the-joke text. Plot and characterization are developed better in Jon Scieszka's "Time Warp Trio" series (Viking) and Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" and "Ricky Ricotta" series (both Scholastic).–Debbie Stewart Hoskins, Grand Rapids Public Library, MI
