While I appreciate the grade school drama appeal of this series, the whole bonus bucks drama is wearing thin. The plot twists regarding the whole subject are a bit over the top and I miss the clever bits I saw in the first book. And those raps are getting to be cringe-worthy. Just not loving this series as much as I did at first.

If anyone needed telling that these kids were a modern American primary school equivalent of Robin Hood, it's writ enormously large right from the off here, when they all get told about the original and all wear appropriate costumes for Hallowe'en at school. It's a step further down the scale of subtlety, and this series has been getting close to touching bottom before now. Partly that is to do with the way our Robin thinks internally about all her friendships, and goings-on, and her reaction to ...more

In Book 3 of the Diary of a 5th Grade Outlaw illustrated novel series, it’s Halloween, and the merry misfits are in for more tricks than treats!

Robin Loxley and her gang of fifth grade friends try hard to be kind and give each other the benefit or the doubt, largely at the behest of Robin. When classroom Bonus Bucks start to go missing at the same time that a new, anti-social kid comes to their class, rumors fly about whether he is responsible for taking them. I like that Robin makes it her business to befriend him, since her gut tells her he isn’t the culprit. She narrates the story as her journal, and the art is her drawing. Robin wre ...more

I received this book from netgalley in exchange of an honest review.
This was an OK book about Halloween, friendship, a new kid, stolen bucks, and fun illustrations. I could understand Wilu. I haven't moved around like he did but I could understand that making friends and then totally losing them just hurts like hell. He was a bit odd, but later we do find out more about him. I loved that our MC was dedicated to making him smile, and even wanted to become his friend.
Then there are the stolen buck

Sending this one on to the elementary school with the other two in the series. The very large print and general feel of this make it a bit too young for my middle school students.

It was five years after Gina Loveless earned an MFA from California Institute of the Arts that she realized her mission as an author was to write books that helped all the weird kids of the world feel less alone. When she’s not writing or reading, Gina can be found in Eastern PA, boogying at concerts with her husband, tending to their awesome produce garden, or snuggling with her rescue dog Gerdie ...more
