really liked it
bookshelves: witty-and-amusing, morbid, cautionary
Recommended for: 4th-6th graders
Read in May, 2007

I shared this with a "close to becoming rowdy" bunch of emerging 6th graders yesterday and they were so into it. ... it was hilarious to hear them shout .... "WHAT-ever!" along with the story.

It's very much like Maurice Sendak's Pierre, but with a more blunt ending.

Susan Brilliant reading it for older kids - love that book.


Beth This was by far the biggest hit with the tough crowd at my Cabbage Patch Settlement House outreach. There was a boy who TOTALLY did not want to be there and it was great to just say WHATEVER to him and then have the whole gang trying to out-whatever each other.
