Laughter is good for the bones. Penrod definitely needs a deal more spankings than he gets, but since a merry heart doeth good like a medicine, and this book is undeniably funny, sometimes a book like this is just what you need. :) Especially if you know many little boys, Penrod and his follies ring hilariously true. :D
This was, in effect, a sequel to Penrod. This despite the fact that Penrod turned 12 at the end of the previous book and was "nearly 12" in this book. Whatever, it's the same cast of 11-year-old boys doing the kinds of inventive, and often naughty, things that 11-year-old boys do. Rather a fun read.
Great book! Very funny and entertaining. It's sorta like Huck Finn except all the adventure takes place near the house. Booth T has a rather dry and wry sense of humor, and I laughed out loud quite a bit. His descriptions of the characters' emotions and reactions are priceless!
