Review: The Interdimensional Dumpster by Ray Connor

The Interdimensional Dumpster by Ray Connor

Willie Ford is 12 years old when his parents tell him that he was found in a dumpster 10 years ago. And not just any dumpster, one where a criminal jumped into moments before Willie was found. When the police looked into the dumpster to chase the criminal, they found Willie instead. Some days later, Willie unknowingly climbs into that same dumpster and finds a magical land.

This is a middle grade book (7-8? or well that's when I might have read it anyway although since our hero is 12 that may make more sense...) so it was pretty simplistic in its story, which is not necessarily a bad thing for the level of reading.

There is a video game theme which runs throughout the book which may appeal to mostly young boys, and actually, I was somewhat amused by it. The characters are quirky which I tend to like although again there was some oversimplification of characters because there were quite a few despite the short length of the book.

You should consider getting this for a younger boy as a fun read.

Star Rating: 3.0/5.0

Glad you're reviewing some mid-grade! I've just rediscovered the fun of books aimed at younger readers. :-)


@Tiger some of them are pretty good (I really liked Brandon Sanderson's middle grade series... but I think I like almost everything he writes so...)


Sounds cute. It's always nice to find good mid-grade and even better to find one that would appeal to boys.
