    1. Jasper Dash is not only a Boy Technonaut, he is a champion for his high school’s varsity Stare-Eyes team, where you lose if you blink. Jasper is joined in a quest to save a monk friend from peril in a bizarre version of Delaware by his fellow adventurers, the, sarcastic, love-struck Katie Mulligan and supportive, slower-moving Lily Gefelty. All three characters are present in two other Anderson books, though the reader does not need to be familiar with either of them to enjoy this story.Humor [...]

    2. Reviewed by Cana Rensberger for TeensReadTooIf you are a fan of M. T. Anderson, you've got to read JASPER DASH AND THE FLAME-PITS OF DELAWARE. Mr. Anderson writes such gripping historical fiction such as the OCTAVIAN NOTHING titles, unforgettable young adult fiction in FEED, and now, another PALS IN PERIL TALE - entertaining, exciting, and yet thought-provoking material for our younger readers. There is a sense of authorial glee in this book that's almost palpable.Jasper Dash is once again off t [...]

    3. This is the third book in M.T. Anderson's Thrilling Tales series. The first two, Whales On Stilts and The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen, were wacky with silliness. I enjoyed them, even though it's not my favorite kind of humor.The Flame Pits of Delaware is in the same vein - much silliness with crazy characters, lots of unpredictable plot twists, and purposely contrived situations. It's a story to be taken lightly, and it helps to check your idea of reality at the front door. Even though I did [...]

    4. Jasper Dash and the Flaming Pits of Delaware What does adventure mean to you? What is true friendship like? What does it take to be a hero? Jasper Dash and the Flaming Pits of Delaware by M.T Anderson is an amazing and suspenseful book that shows friendship, heroics, and adventure. Jasper, Katie, and Lily already have a lot of problems at home, but when Jasper Dash gets a S.O.S message from his friend, Drgnan, they must travel and have a daring adventure in Delaware at the temple of Vbngoom to s [...]

    5. Many moments of truly funny writing strung together by a weak story, plot and lack of depth. Maybe this is too harsh, but there are books out there that are funny and will leave you with something to uplift, like Kate DiCamillo's Flora and Ulysses.

    6. Maybe you’ve been to that small wonder of the state of Delaware a time or two. Perhaps you even reside there. But you’ve never been to the one as crafted by M.T. Anderson in Jasper Dash and the Flame-Pits of Delaware. This Delaware is “a realm of wonders and terrors, a land that time forgot, or chose specifically not to remember.” (98) Filled with majestic mountains, deep forests, icy bluffs and frigid cliffs, this land is indeed a challenge for our three intrepid high school heroes: Jas [...]

    9. M. T. Anderson has stealthily become one of my favorite authors.I loved Whales on Stilts: M.T. Anderson's Thrilling Tales, and its follow-up; and then I read Feed, which is fantastic; and I found some of his short stories, and they were great.By the time I got to this book, evidence of an apparent series forming from his Whales premise, I was excited, but wary. A series about kids from other series is a great shtick, but does it have longevity? The joke, I think, would wear thin quickly.And I fe [...]

    10. I grabbed this BOCD, almost at random, before a road trip with my 3 boys. I was not at all familiar with the author, but the cover appealed to me and the description sounded like it would appeal to my boys (ages 8, 11, and 13).The story is absurd, and full of unrelated tangents, which work together to make it hilarious. It is even more absurd to someone who knows about Delaware (as I do) - like Katie, I was saying "there are no mountains in Delaware!" before they ever left Pelt. But setting asid [...]

    11. The book's setting is Delaware , it's a land of wonders , it's also a land of mystery . Delaware is a land that time forgot . Jasper Dash, and his friends Lily Gefelty and Katie Mulligan, must journey to unravel a terrible mystery , they are also the main characters . This book was a very interesting to read , it had from aliens to humor . Jasper Dash is my favirote character , he is brave and does many challenges to get to what he wants . Jasper thinks that the Delawarean Stare-Eyes team might [...]

    12. Book three of the Pals in Peril series is much longer than the other books. The first book, Whales on Stilts, is a parody of alien invasion stories. The second is a send up of kids mystery fiction. Jasper Dash and the Flame Pits of Delaware is a take on quest fantasy, with a healthy dose of espionage thriller.The state of Delaware, in case you didn’t know, is a nightmare realm, tyrannized by the Awful and Adorable Autarch of Dagsboro. Jasper, Katie and Lily must enter this enchanted horrorscap [...]

    13. I enjoyed this as much as the others in the series, Whales on Stilts and The Clue of the Linoleum Lederhosen, although I often wonder who likes these besides me. The adventures work for a juvie - to- teen audience, but the references to children's series fiction of other eras are so thick I always think these are really written for adults.Jasper Dash, Boy Technonaut, and his friends Katie (of the Horror Hollow series) and Lily (of no book series at all) travel to the wilds of Delaware to rescue [...]

    14. Adventure at its most camp. M. T. Anderson's Pals in Peril books are take-offs on the old adventure books written in the 20's and 30's, complete with the original language in places. Ready to depart, chums? The book starts with the town high school's all important Stare-Eyes contest. Our team loses, but why? There's mischief afoot--no, that's Sherlock Holmes. Darn! the intrepid Jasper Dash and his friends Lily and Katie travel to the wilds of Delaware, cut off from the rest of the country becaus [...]

    15. The latest in MTA's affectionately satiric take on various genres of children's adventure series. This time, they must rescue monk friends of the anachronistically dapper Jasper Dash in a land of mystery and danger: Delaware. "For one hundred years, Delaware has been cut off from the other states, isolated completely as a result of its overpriced and prohibitive interstate highway tollsOnly the bravest of explorers have penetrated this exotic land."Sometimes I'm tempted to give an MTA book fewer [...]

    16. A wacky story in the vein of 40s-era serials with your hero (Jasper Dash) and his nemesis (Bobby Spandrel) locked into another battle. The wacky part? Where to start: the hero is on the local "Stare Eyes" team, in which the athletes stare each other down. The main action of the story happens in Delaware, where they speak a different language (with a severe lack of vowels). There are also mountains in this version of Delaware. And a king. And plenty of spies.We read this to our kids, but the stor [...]

    17. Strong readers (8-12 yr olds) with a taste for sharp wit, tongue in cheek humor, and the totally bizarre will love this book and I gather the rest of the series. (First in the series is Whales on Stilts.) Setting & characters read like a superhero comic book world it may appeal to those who like graphic novels, although this isn't one. It may be a good bridge from graphic novel format to the standard novel. The characters in this book are all characters from other (fictional- as in non exist [...]

    18. First, for context, I listed to a great audio recording of this book on a road trip with my family. It worked well for us.The book is entertaining start to end, although the slapstick and the narrator sometimes get in the way of enjoying the over-the-top pulp. It is funny. And mostly clean, although with some subtle issues that might affect some perspectives. Too much emphasis on how and why this Delaware is weird, although we usually just get to enjoy it. While it was never mentioned in the boo [...]

    19. While I couldn't finish it, this would be the perfect book to hand a young middle school boy. It has aliens, a crazy plot, and a lot of humor. Personally though, it had a couple things working against it. First, the length. Although the topic would probably draw in reluctant reader, the thickness might put them off. I certainly didn't enjoy the story enough to continue much past page 75. Second, I think it was meant as a parody of various genres, but I am not familiar enough with those to get th [...]

    20. What a silly fun book. For 100 years, Delaware has been cut off from the other states, isolated completely as a result of its overpriced and prohibitive interstate highway tolls. For 100 years almost no one has gone in or out. Only the bravest of explorers have penetrated this exotic land. Thirty-two years ago, the governor of Delaware was chased out by a crazed military dictator known as His Terrifying Majesty, the Awful and Adorable Autarch of Dagsboro. Wothin Delaware, a monastery exists wher [...]

    21. This is one of those books that I want to carry out onto the sidewalk and accost random passersby, saying "YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!" I admit that I partly want to do this because it's so hard to describe why the book is so good; explaining that it takes place in a world where the characters from children's series fiction are real kids interacting with each other makes it sound like a parody, which it is kind of but also an homage - that's really funny - and a great version of one of [...]

    22. I'd like to visit the Delaware described in this novel. I had no idea that we had such an exotic land right here in our own United States.I though M. T. Anderson's first two books in this series were the products of a not-quite sane mind, but this one goes just a few steps further. It is glorious to see such imagination combined with so much irony. The characters are as great as ever and the mystery/adventure is just as mysterious and adventurous, but the location is incredible.This book had me [...]

    23. I'm debating, should I have added speculative fiction to my list of shelves? Anderson sets this story in Delaware, but not the Delaware we know. Our three heros venture to Delaware when they realize that precious treasures are being stolen from a monastary in DE where Jasper studied years ago. They must trek through the mountains, being wary of lake squids, flying dinosaurs and cannibals, among other things. There are of course dastardly villians, gangsters, and a lack of vowels. A fun, escapist [...]

    24. This was the first book I’ve read by M.T. Anderson and I have to say that I’m glad I did. It has action, adventure, monks, gangsters, live dinosaurs, and a side of Delaware that has never been seen before. I loved the interesting and original characters, action packed story, and very original location. I also loved how Delaware was transformed from a small, quiet state into a lush, exotic, jungle wilderness. It’s like Thursday Next for a younger generation. If you like witty and action, it [...]

    25. An excellent book, with the unusual combo of one male and two female protagonists, rather than the typical two male and one female. This book is a comedy adventure, and even though I was sick and recovering from childbirth it had me laughing aloud on almost every page, as it takes complete liberties with geography, history, and reality as we know it. Definitely a book I'd recommend to others who want to explore the middle grade genre and see what it has to offer to adults; also, definitely on my [...]

    26. A fun, unusual fantasy adventure book that appeals to older readers through its insistent self-parody and narrator's asides. I loved it, my nine and fifteen year old listeners loved it, but the young adults in the party were irritated by the narrator's self reference. A great book to read with 8-14 year olds who like their adventure and fantasy to be tongue-in-cheek. Hilarious theme song at the end.

    27. As a grown adult, albeit one who grew up reading the sorts of books that Anderson uses to create his universe, this is still one of my favorite current series. The amazing thing about Anderson isn't just his ability to write uproariously funny prose, or note-perfect parodies, but rather, his gift for combining those things with heart-stopping tenderness, such as that found on the last four beautiful pages. Amazing, and highly recommended.

    28. Charming and clever, but a little too long and rambling. I’ve been reading the ‘Pals In Peril’ series with my oldest daughter, and the first two were absolutely pitch perfect send ups of kid’s books series. Thoughtful, weird and very funny. While the same can be said about ‘Jasper Dash and The Flame Pits of Delaware’, it doesn’t pack quite the same punch. A small stumble, but still a fun and intelligent series.

    29. This is another quirky, tongue-in-cheek M.T. Anderson novel, perfect for adolescents who love off-beat humor and wit. For the duration, a mystery of sorts, Anderson pokes fun at Delaware. Why? Because he can. Because Delaware is fun to make fun of. From monks, flame-pits, and hungry tigers to stare-eyes competitions, gangsters, and poisoned lentil stew, this novel twists in the most unlikely directions. Super funny and super fun to read.
