Step away from this book ... it looks like great fun, doesn't it, but this is a relatively unexciting tale of a boy's slow acceptance of his uncle, and is not as comic as its title (or cover art) suggests.
I'm not familiar with Woodruff's other work (she seems prolific enough) so can't recommend an alternative from her oeuvre. Nonetheless, there are too many great books out there to really spend your time on this one.
Note: a 3 star ranking from me is actually pretty good; I reserve 4 stars for tremendously good works, and 5 only for the rare few that are or ought to be classic; unfortunately most books published are 2 or less.

I have read this book aloud to several classes... third, fourth, and fifth grades. They love it! There is something irresistable about a snake for a pet and messing around in a funeral home!
