What I like about this book is its very funny and ridiculous it has a lot of different storys in every chapter is what happened in his life (Andy Griffiths) Wow his life is very hard to believe but it is very very funny. Why I chose this book is it looked wacky and funny in the cover looked crazy and it had bright colours on it.

My favourite character in this book was Andy Griffiths he is also who made the book!
He sounds like he is very important and crazy.

My favourite chapter in this book is ch

This book made me fall in love with the Just series. It was the first book I read, so that might explain something.

Read This.

This stories in here might be stupid and just plain dumb, but who cares? Slap-stick humour became famous for a reason.

Andy Griffiths’ Just Crazy is a fiction novel based on different stories of a story particularly about the crazy life of an 11-year-old boy. The main character, Andy, Andy is a humorous, joking, and is consistently making a fool of himself. The story is also expository/ a narrative perspective (telling us), because sometimes Andy is talking to us and sometimes Andy is talking to someone else which is interesting for those of you who like diary formed/based novels. I read this b

In this book there were some stories. The first one was band aid and the second one was mostly about a fog that ate stuff and the next one was about a crazy, bad,dumb, bad, crazy idea, guess why it was like that? Because there was this boy that got heaps and heaps of balloons, enough to get him to float in the air and guess what happened? There was this power line and he risked his while life and he was almost nude when he got back. And the last one was mud men about a son and a dad who had thei ...more

Oh my goodness if this wasn't the greatest series written for middle grade kids who want to be endlessly entertained then I don't know what is. These books are the most fantastic, imaginative, gross and wonderful stories, not to mention the illustrations! The book is filled with flip pictures, other smaller stories of cartoons across the pages and it is just SO entertaining. I have never laughed so much reading anything in my life, and despite being about twelve or so when I did read them all, I ...more

Yet again, Andy Griffiths is a magnificent writer, making tehe most out of every situation. I watched an interview with him once on T.V. and I agree with his idea of writing 'the just series'.

...things you want to do but would never dream of actually doing it.

I have had some of these encounters myself, personally I call them lifetime dreams, LOL.

Just recently I did a lifetime dream of eating spaghett, but really messy. At the end it was like all over the floor and my face was stained orange! ^w^

'Just Crazy' is just a load of crazy stories about Andy and his friends.

Andy was my favourite character in the book 'Just Crazy' because his personality and stories a humorous.

my favourite chapter is Band aid because its funny how he has had a plasters on his arm for six months and he is trying so hard to remove it. He tried sucking it with a vacuum cleaner, tweezers and even a dump idea of strapping a rope to a piano and the plaster and throwing it off a building.

This is a book about a kid called Andy and his funny tales some off which involve his best friend Danny and a girl he likes from school called Lisa. I thought it was a really funny book especially the mudman story and the story called a really crazy bad dumb idea. I would definitely recommend this book

I'm probably to old for this book,but i read it and whats done is done,i found this book funny and i liked how there were separate short stories that were, well crazy just like what the titles says,i also liked how there were little illustrations on the side of the pages, a few of which were quite funny.Overall good book if you want to have a bit of a laugh.
Jan 25, 2011 Amanda rated it it was ok
This series was ok, I seemed to like it when I was younger but I cannot enjoy them now. The humour in the story is based on things that are immature so as I have grown up I can no longer appreciate the humour. However the author visited my school when I was in Year 4 and I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread.

I just read this to my 8 year old. This is our second Just book. I didn't like it as much as Just Tricking. Some of it was a bit beyond my 8 year old. Andy is trying hard to impress Lisa Mackney, which my 8 year is not interested in at all
May 15, 2014 Ryan rated it it was ok
Just Crazy is very funny, silly, and just crazy. It is about a kid named Andy who is silly when he rode a pink bike because he was chasing his little cousins. I would recommend this book if you like funny books.

A great book to read if YOU are crazy (like myself)! The crazy test says so! But it's still a good book to read even if you are NOT crazy.

Hilarious book about teeth glowing in the dark, flying away with balloons and eating a goldfish.
Read this book if you want to feel a little bit more normal.

I've done the CRAZY TEST and my score is ZERO.

According to the back cover of this book, the meaning of the score is I am so crazy I don't even realise I'm crazy.
