Opinion

From Library Staff

Jon Scieszka and his six knucklehead brothers would try about anything that sounded dangerous. It is a wonder they did not die or burn the house down! RL 4.6

In accessibly irreverent language, the author relates the wacky fun he had growing up in a family of six boys and lots of comic books.

I read it a long time ago, and I still am putting a hold on it. It's good, trust me. My teachers kept getting mad at me for laughing so hard I fell out of my seat. That was actually quite a long time ago....

Funniest book I've read in a long time. A bunch of 6th graders recommended this book to me and I took the bait. My favorite Jon Scieszka is the Stinky Cheese Man, which is also extremely funny. I recommended the book to my parents who grow up around the same time and could relate to the stories that Jon told. Definitely a must read!

This is a funny, smart and clever book. Anyone who likes Scieszka must read this book, as well as anyone who hasn't heard of him.
