As a mother of boys, I love books like this. They give us the opportunity to walk in the shoes of a boy and see the world through his eyes. Indeed, how would you know it is a rule not to make walrus teeth with your sticks? How frustrating to have good ideas and want to implement them only to find out you have broken yet another rule set in place by grownups.

I found this to be an entertaining and enlightening read. Made me miss the days when my boys were this age. Would make an excellent classroom read aloud for K or 1st grades.

This book is great for beginning readers. Especially boys! It's not easy finding books that engage overactive boys. They can definitely relate to Roscoe. Great series!

Roscoe is supposed to bring craft supplies for his class. In doing so, he manages to get a hold of his mother's super strong glue, the "Don't You Dare Glue". And bringing this to school leads to chaos and bad choices.

This is a very cute early chapter book. Parents will love the author's sense of humour. There are illustrations every few pages to also keep the young reader's interest and to help with comprehension. But parents and teachers may hesitate to expose the young people in their lives to this work. Roscoe is a scamp, there is no other word for him. He routinely makes choices that are ill-thought through, but make for hilarious outcomes. Choices that these same children could mimic. You have been warned.
