- Jaha, sa læreren, - vi får vel ønske den nye gutten Simon Kroll velkommen i klassen.

Den nye gutten! Simon! Med ett gikk det opp for meg at det var meg hun snakket om. Det var det idiotiske navnet Simone som hadde skylden. Skulle jeg si det som det var? "Unnskyld, men det må være en feiltakelse. Jeg er faktisk jente." Jeg kjente forsiktig på de kortklipte krøllene. Håret

Fruitloops & Dipsticks is a hilarious story about a young girl growing up in a dysfunctional family. It's not a long book but it's crammed full with amusing episodes about 12 year old Simone, who poses for most of the story as Simon. This is because her teacher mistook her for a boy when she started at her new school. I'm sure you can imagine some of the eventualities that come as a result of this mistake.

The protagonist, Simone, is smart but also witty and she keeps the story going at a fas

Fruitloops and Dipsticks is a coming-of-age/gender identity novel about a girl called Simone who is mistaken for a boy by her teacher when she starts at her new school (hence the name Simon). Simone comes to accept her family’s - and her own - eccentricities, and learns a lot about life and love (she gets kissed by a girl who thinks she is a guy and she also kisses a boy she likes) along the way.

I bought this with my pocket money in 1986 and read it many times. So many times, in fact, that I covered the fraying dust jacket with sticky foil eventually. I guess, I liked stories about girls pretending to be boys and having to deal with all the funny pitfalls even then.

But contemporary children's books from Sweden like this one - or like "Wie eine Hecke voller Himbeeren" ("Om livet är dig kärt") held an extraordinary appeal just by being so gloriously unrestricted and open. German children'

Будучи под благоприятным впечатлением от прочитанной ранее Умеешь ли ты свистеть, Йоханна?, я откопала еще одну книжечку Старка.
Что с меня взять, люблю я иногда эти приятные штучки, про становление личности под влиянием всяких каверзных ситуаций, когда ГГ в конце встает и всем показывает класс.
В данной книжульке наблюдается доля здорового идиотизма (неординарные персонажи), интерпретация “упоротых” и “линейных”, и пара забавных моментов. За вечерок можно прочесть. Не могу сказать, что безоговоро

I quite liked this one. A quick read with enough crazy to make me laugh, but still serious enough to make me think about some things.

"Il Paradiso dei Matti" appare come una classica commedia dell'errore, in cui la povera ragazzina si ritrova ad avere un nome che nella nuova scuola considerano maschile e perciò inizia a fingersi un ragazzo.
Il libro è scritto con una freschezza e innocenza ideale per la lettura dei bambini, e tratta di temi, per esempio la scoperta della sessualità, l'amore, l'introduzione di una nuova figura paterna, la morte, e tanti altri, molto indicati per la crescita del bambino, e lo fa con tatto e nessu

Не готова морально, что в 12 девочки будут снимать трусы перед мальчиками, но в остальном книга милая.

That is a book for kids and about kids. And as with any kids book an adult can find in it some philosophical question. Am I a fruitloop or a dipstick? I don't know. Maybe both. The book is well written and is easy to read.

This book contains all the complications that will happen when your class friends think you are a boy, when you really is a girl. This is a funny childrens book, and remember it very well.
