I am currently reading dancing dudes. The author is mike Knudsen he does a really good job at making the book seem like its real life because most the stuff that happened in this book could happen to me like when they all go to lunch hey have a conversation about a video game. The author also puts alout of funny stuff in this book like one time rayomond had to dance with his teacher and everyone else got to dance with the people they wanted to. If you like humor and realistic fiction then I reco...more

recently I started reading Dancing Dudes by Mike Knudson. The idea of this book is how graham [Raymonds best friend] trie to make him manly so he can get a cute girl named Heidi. When I first started reading this I couldnt even put it down because it was so funny and intresting. I could relate this book to raymond and graham to how my brother and his best friend are always together and making each other and everyone lese laugh. I really liked this book and I know that I will like the others to j...more
dancing dudes Raymond was in fourth grade and he was a real show off, he and his friend Graham would always guess what was for lunch that day by the smell. Graham liked a girl named kelly, he always tried to be cool around her so she would think he was so cool and cute. But graham couldnt wait for valentines day so he could give kelly the best gift ever!

My seven-year-old son loves to quote this book. We read this in November and it's now April. He still remembers what Raymond said to Graham and we laugh all over again. The guy rules were fun and believable, both for Mother and Son. We can't wait to read this again. This book is like a Pixar movie with something in it for everyone.

Recommended to Annalisa by: Mike Knudson
I recommended this to my daughter when I heard a very funny Mike Knudson speak at a writing conference and she enjoyed it so much she made me read it. The tone leaned a little toward an adult remembering what it was like as a child than a child, but it still had some great elementary awkwardness and humor.
i just loved the first book so i had to read the favorite part was the toothbrush part when he wound his old toothbrush when we was in fist made me think he was a bigger baby then he was when he was a litter kid and when his mother cleans it in the tolit!
This book was very funny and i enjoyed it alot.It had lots of humor and some surprising parts(like the part when Graham becomes Raymonds "manly coach").I can't describe this book very well but that it is very funny and i will read the other books.
the book is gereat so far, Raymond and Graham keep writing poems to kelly(a character)for the big dance coming up, and neither of them got to dance with kellybut the worst part was that Raymond had to dance with the teacher
I thought it was funny how graham was his "MANLY COACH":) and how he was trying to impress heidi. I thought it was wierd that he had a pretty good time dancing with mrs.gibson I thought it was really wierd

The character Graham was trying his best to show how much he loves Kelly. However it was a big mistake when Graham inserted all those letters which was meant for Kelly into Raymond's valentine box
Kristen Landon
Laugh-out-loud funny. Mike Knudson is hilarious--as an author and in person. He also adds just a touch of heart to the end of this book that was perfect.
ok so this book is one of those books that i read with my dad when i was little. this was a very funny book and my dad and I had a lot of laughs! (:
