The One and Only Stuey Lewis: Stories from the Second Grade (Stuey Lewis #1)
So what if Stuey isn’t the world’s best reader, is only allowed to trick or treat around one block, doesn’t get to play on his soccer dream team, and has to put up with the most annoying girl on the planet. Somehow Stuey always makes life work and when he puts his mind to it, he can survive anything—even second grade. This hilarious collection of linked short stories, int
Stuey's story is definitely geared toward second graders, although it could be used for third or fourth grade students as well (though I don't think they will enjoy reading about a char...more
Not much else to say. A short book with very short stories and not a ton of positive things to say about it, unfortunately.

Calling teachers by their first names? sigh. Teacher being more of a parent than the parent? sigh. Name calling throughout the book? sigh.
Most of the reviews are positive, both professional and amateur. Dunno.
touching story about an unforgettable little boy named Stuey Lewis. This little
second grade guy goes through challenge after challenge and lives to tell the tale.
A perfect read-aloud book for younger children as well as a great reader for kids in
second and third grade. Keep your eye out for more books in this fun series. I LOVE Stuey!

As for Joliet Reads... I think the kids would really enjoy it. Would the district's teachers mind that his brother calls him "Stu-pid" when their mom is not around? The brother also called him "Jerk" one time, but gets in trouble for it. For the committee's purposes, I think this would be a good choice for third...more

Stuey finds friendship in unexpected places. Good story about a second-grader (making this a hard sell for third, fourth, and fifth graders maybe) who is worried about his inability to read as well as his classmates. Only regret is the name-calling between Stuie and his older brother, Anthony, and the fact that the teacher asks her second graders to call her "Ginger." Hmmm.

Plus it was cute and fun to read i really enjoyed it.
I found that the story was incredibly boring. For a kid who likes school stories this might hit the spot, but don't you dare hand this to a kid who wants a little adventure!
This is a good book because each chapter is a different story about Stuey. I like it a lot because it is funny. Stuey has what he thinks are great ideas but they get him into trouble in funny ways. He and his brother and great arguments that are funny too.
