      Like the first book, they were funny The bit that I can remember is when Ishmael went to Kelly Falkner s friend s party, Ishmael dropped yellow juice bottle in the pool when he was in it Then those yellow juice came out and those people who were invited to that party thought he wee He couldn t find the bottle and Ishamel and his friend, Orazio had to come back from party I think people should read Ishmael series because it is not just fun, it has meanings in it In the first book,the meaning was [...]

      I think this book is a pretty good book I think it s better than the first book.

    4. Jill Smith says:
      This is the middle book of the Ishmael series.Typical teenage boys just obsessed with getting the girls of their dreams, really over simplifies this brilliant book.Again Ishmael is besotted with Kelly Faulkner whom he is certain thinks he s a total scum bag when his Ishmael Leseur s syndrome has caused him it s usual amount of humiliation and angst, while his best mate the Razzman seems unable to accept that Sally straight A s friend of Kelly s is keen on him Their English teacher Miss Tarango h [...]

    7. Nipun says:
      Definitely the funniest book I have ever read All of the characters shone in their roles, and the book really had a feel of the typical schoolboy struggle while serving up joke after joke The cover art is also really well put together, and I m pretty bummed the author decided to go with the other version of the covers for the last book Oh well.All in all, Ishmael and the Return of the Dugongs is a brilliant, hilarious story that I guarantee you will reread countless times.

    8. Andrew says:
      After reading the first book, Don t Call Me Ishmael , I obviously had to get my hands on this book and read it Eventually my mum decided to buy it for us and she read it also We both enjoyed it a lot, it s just as good as the first book in the trilogy series I own the third book too but I haven t read it yet and I really need to Or I could just re read the first two and read the third book after

    9. Collins Wang says:
      This book was interesting than Don t Call Me Ishmael because it uses non fiction information like Pi and Beatles, with fictional information like the Dugongs, et cetera The creative use of the abovementioned writing genres makes the reader feel and fascinated as the story progresses In the end, Ishmael and Razza both get together with the person they like dreamed about.

    10. Dylan T says:
      i really enjoyed this book, at the start it wasn t as enjoyable as the first one, but as i read on the book started to grow on me and the that i wanted to read i have really enjoyed all of these books so far because i can kind of relate to them towards the end of the book i enjoyed it than the first one.

    11. Caroline M says:
      I just love this series a lot This book made me smile so much, even though I stayed up until 1 AM to read it and I usually feel like dying Like, the characters are so cute and so moving, and the plot is just hilarious.It s just a really cutesy middle school book that makes you laugh a lot, and that I sincerely needed.

    12. Matthew Goldsmith says:
      This is a great I would not recommend anyone to read unless they have read the first book after that i would really recommend anyone to read it It is a great carry on from the first book and because the first book was written at such a high standard this one had to follow up which it did perfectly I can t wait to read the next one

    13. Shane Harcombe says:
      A book that grew on me as I kept reading To begin with, I wasn t enjoying it as much as Don t Call Me Ishmael , but in the end the sweetness won me over The characters have definitely moved out of middle school and into raging teenager hormone territory but I think that is exactly who it aimed at A pleasant read I would recommend to any 14 16 yo.

    14. Sylvia says:
      A very funny sequel to Don t call me Ishmael While Ishmael faces another year at St Daniel s, his father s old band reforming, and his teacher on a mission to teach love poetry, there s music and romance in the air But can Ishmael win the heart of Kelly Faulkner Full of surprises and funny character Razzman is da man , this book is a page turner.

    15. Marita says:
      A most excellent school comedy which absolutely retains its authenticity As the title suggests the most important theme in the book is the enduring value of friendship Lots of silly capers as well, but never at the expense of the story or characterisation.

    16. Jock Parsons says:
      this book was really goodscobie comes back into the book the go to kelly folkners partty and the littel girl spills yellow cordell in the water the every one thiknks it was ishmale that piedd himself

    17. Anthony says:
      More hilarity and cringe worthy moments maybe because they re so relatable in this novel A wonderful story which transitions into something mature than the last A nice move and reflective of Ishmael s maturity.

    18. Dimity Powell says:
      There is only one thing which salves the hurt of finishing a Michael Gerard Bauer novel that s knowing there s another in the series to read But like savouring roast potatoes, I m saving it for as long as possible Absolute genius.

    19. Nhu says:
      Hilarious I loved it, even though at first i had my doubts because of the cover the saying don t judge a book by its cover couldn t be truer.


    20. Danny says:
      The book made me laugh out loud so evidently it s a good book.


    21. Mrs. M says:
      Loved this book read with Middle School students as it gives wonderful character portrayals of friends, enemies, and perseverance.
