Another book that is part of my flashback series! I really did not enjoy this book as it was slower than the first two as in getting to its main plot, and such. It took about 83 pages to get to the rising action, and I am not surprised. When you are alot older you see the flaws in such books like these, and when your younger you enjoy them! I currently have 13 books left to read from this series!

The Good The Bad and the very Slimy is a funny book because it's about a boy named Bernie Bridges and he needed a date for the dance. So he asked his dream girl if she would go with him. April-May June said if he would stay out of trouble for a week. But he didn't.

This appealed to my son when he was at the end of third grade, but it's really just stupid useless crap that, again, appeals to kids because it's readable and it has enough disgusting content to make children feel like it's contraband. If you believe in the theory that at a young age it's important for kids to practice reading ANYTHING, this is a fine selection for a boy. It just leaves you with absolutely nothing to think or talk about, but I'm sure it's harmless (save for the time wasted that ...more
it was hilarious :)
At first I thought that it was too babyish for me, but when I went to the third page I found out that it was pretty funny and enjoyable for even adults who are having a bad day and want to stress out and have a great time if it is rain or if their is a huge storm coming.

I just want to say that it is really awesome to read it because you may have memories of when you were in fourth grade and didn't know what you were doing.
I liked the book but I really wished that April-May would have went to the dance with Bernie at the end. Also Bernie was supposed to be doing good things the whole week. But instead he was just doing good things infront of April-May, so in a way he deserves not going to the dance with her.
In this book of rotten school bernie trys to impress a girl he likes named april may so she can go out with him to a school dance but she wont go out with him until he changes his behavior

RL Stine is not an author I normally pick up for children, so I was trying to stretch myself with this novel and I was pleasantly surprised that I loved it.
I liked this book because there is funny stuff in the book like when Jennifer Ecch said to Bernie, "Hi sugarcakes!" They race slugs in this book.
