Not a great work of art by any means, but definitely something that will interest young readers. I liked how the power of being the Principal went to Josh's head, because that does seem natural. Easy to suspend your disbelief for, but I wish they could have gone into the reasons why the principal makes some of his decisions rather than vilifying him for video games.

I enjoyed this book because it was funny and kept me interested. It made me think about who I would have switched positions with in the school. I would let my students read this book but I would also tell them about the other books that go along with this one. There are a few others that are in a series that would probably be a good read for older students as well.

I read this book when I was in Grade 4 (about 14 years ago). I LOVED this book. This book is the reason why I fell in love with reading, lol.
