The book Lord of the Fries is a funny easy book to read I never got bored reading this great book. Their are many stories in this book. Their is Luc who turns Rodney's life around.

This book really jumps from story to story and each story makes this book how good it is.

I recommend this book to everyone that loves to read about solving a problem.

I think I was expecting more from these stories, since I enjoyed Mr. Wynne-Jones's lecture so much. It took me a long time to get through the stories because the conflicts seemed a little trite. I loved ick, though. He definitely has the humor, and I think many kids would enjoy the stories, but I don't think I ever would have been his audience.

i think this is gonna be about a guy who works at a restaurant and makes the best fries ever which makes him the "lord of the fries" maybe?

I especially like the Anne of Green Gables story, "The Anne Rehearsals." Reminded me of Rachael Lebeck and the Fancy Nancy stories!
