This is a real ‘boy’ book in the category with Huck Finn. A steady stream of fifth graders have been coming into the library asking for this book, so as my last Bus Room Book of the year I had to pick it up to read. The older boys in my bus room all said it was really funny and recommended it. The first chapter had me busting out loud with laughter, so one of the fourth graders immediately started reading it too.
Yesterday in bus room when I picked it up to continue he said:
“I knew you would be in that book today, pulling out more laughs; like a bird plucking worms!”
