The main character, George is moving to another town and a new school, again. At his last school, his friends knew him as the fun and crazy class clown. However, this time George wants to be a model student - a “normal” student. But of course, this doesn’t happen. After seeing a shooting star, he wishes to be funny, but not get into trouble. Soon after, that’s when the “Super” burp “ping pongs” from his stomach all the way up out of his mouth for all the world to hear. BURP! The mysterious burps ...more

George Brown was the class clown at his old school, but after his family moves once again he vows to be a perfectly behaved student at his new school. However, George trips when dancing and sneezes his lunch everywhere. Later, when eating out with his parents, George wishes on a shooting star to make kids laugh, but not get into trouble. Somehow the first part of the wish comes true, but not the second. George occasionally burps and then does crazy things (like skateboarding through school.) Gra ...more

Grades 1-3. RL 550. George Brown moves to a new school and he is determined NOT to be a goofball and get in trouble with his teachers. Then he wishes on a shooting star "I wish I could make kids laugh, but not get in trouble." But only the 1st half comes true. Now he gets magical burps that well up inside of him and make him do crazy things. Kids are laughing... but he's getting into big trouble. My 1st grader cannot get enough of this!

George Brown was the class clown at his old school but he decides he should change when he attends his new school. As George tries to change something takes over and George can't stop his antics. Follow George as he tries to make friends and stop being the class clown.

This book is great for young readers, especially boys who can relate to the character. Should keep readers entertained and laughing beginning to end.

I think 8-10 year old boys will like this book. George was known as the class clown at his last school, but wants to change things when his dad moves the family to a new army base. George really tries to behave, but when a super burp erupts from him without warning, his behavior seems to spiral out of control. He finds himself in the principal's office as usual. Will George be able to turn over a new leaf, or will he become the class clown once more? Read Super Burp to find out!

From the author of Katie Kazoo comes George Brown. The class clown plans to turn over a new leaf at his new school, but super burps are taking over and he can't control himself. Sure to hit the funny bone of 6 and 7 year old beginning readers or mIddle grade reluctant readers. Another choice for the Captain Underpants crowd.
Amanda Harrison
Flat characters, cringeworthy relationships between characters. The super burp takes over George's body and makes him do crazy stunts not unlike a kid's movie with the inevitable food fight. Humorous and mildly diverting, but an unsatisfying ending.

I read this book to my 6yo son, he found it to be highly amusing and was always eager to find out what George would do next.

Too much use of the word dumb and stupid when referring to other people.

03/16: The boys enjoyed this little series back in the day. I'm deleting all but Book 1 to save time transferring reviews from Shelfari to Goodreads.

04/12: David is going through books so quickly these days. I found this series through the "Books for Boys" website. Easy reads. David read this first one one night, and JB read it last night, after finishing "Inkheart" and waiting to get "Inkspell."

George has this problem....his super-sized burps make him act completely goofy! With Christmas around the corner there are all kinds of situations arising when George really should not be acting so out-of-control. He's tried a number of ways to stop his burping--mustard, somersaulting--but they just keep coming up at the wrong time. Further complications arise when Kevin, George's best friend from his old school, comes over to visit and George has to figure out how to be a friend to Kevin and hi ...more

A book I read was George Brown Class Clown by Nancy E. Krulik. George’s dad is in the military so George and his family are always moving to new places. Every school that George goes to he is always the class clown. George and his family are moving again and he wants to start out fresh. He does not want to be the class clown again. He wants to be the kid that always knows the answers and always raises his hand. He does not want to tell anymore jokes and he does not want to make anyone laugh. If ...more
Kids with impulse control problems or other troubles adjusting to the school environment will really relate to this main character, who is trying to turn over a new leaf and exhibit good behavior at his new school. Unfortunately, he's been cursed with the Super Burp, which is not only very loud, but also initiates a short period of time when he loses control and does crazy things for laughs, like skateboarding through the school hallway. These brief episodes are totally beyond his control, which ...more

George moves a lot and he wants to change to be the new George in his newest school. He used to be a class clown in his old school and it is not easy to be more quiet and a good boy. One day he sees a shooting star and makes a wish to be able to make people laugh. The funny thing is when he burps his super duper burps, George does weird and funny things, which make people usually mad at him.

It’s an okay children book. I enjoy reading George’s stories.

The book is called super burp and class clown by nancy E. Krulik.

Its about a boy with super burp and his mom, and dad hated the super burp because it makes a BIG
DEASTER ! . I like this book because it talkes about a boy having a super burp and it got tookin away
from his freind Alex by giveing him a onion ice cream. I will recomend this book to Ms. Joesph because she like's reading books.
The series to read after you complete Captain Underpants and are left wanting more. Follow the escapades of George Brown as he moves to his new town and discovers uncontrollable powers every time he burps. Mixed in with real world life experiences of elementary kids is a fantastical world of burp power and the shenanigans that evolve as a result.

This is the first book in a new spin-off series from the Katie Switcheroo stories by Nancy Krulik. George Brown, a class clown, has moved away and is trying hard to be a new, improved George. He doesn't want to be a class clown anymore or get into trouble. He wants to make friends in his new school, So far, it's been a challenge. I liked it. It was a fun read and boys will enjoy it's silliness.

Recommended to Laura by: Evan
Evan & I read this together. I think the title alone got him interested. George is starting at a new school and decides to be different than he was in his old school. In his new school, he wants to behave himself, not be the class clown like before. That doesn't work out so well for him. I'm sure Evan liked the story more than I did since burps don't make me giggle, but I thought it was ok.

My stepdaughter had this lying around, so I picked it up and read it. It's probably better-written than it needs to be, but it's not particularly my style, even for a kids' series book. It ends in mid-story, so I'm sure there's much more to come, but I don't know that I'll come back to it, unless another one winds up sitting on my coffee table.

Pretty cute book. Listened to it as a family while driving around town. Got some good laughs out of it. What bothered me most about this book was the abrupt ending. I didn't realize it was wrapping up, and then BAM the end. Still a fun book, though.

Reading this book with my 7 year old. So far Andrew and I really like it.

6-27-11 drew and I really laughed out loud during this book. I read him several chapters a week for bedtimes. It was a fun story about being in a new school and making new friends. Drew loved it!

Magic burps? Hmmmm... I guess it will be very relatable for kids who have impulse control issues, but it kind of annoyed me. And the random bolded words and phrases on each page drove me nuts - very distracting! 2nd-4th grade boys might love this, but it's definitely not my favorite.

This seemed like a good intro book. I love Katie Kazoo, so I'm excited to see what George Brown does. I'll have to read more before I make a judgement on this series. it was cute, though, with plenty of "boy humor."
Leah (9) read this to her brother(5). Leah thought it was just "ok" but Charlie really enjoyed it.
With all three.

2nd-3rd grade boys will love the George Brown series. They are gross enough for boys to like but not so terrible that moms dislike them. Nancy Krulik's "Katie Kazoo" series is great for girls.
Spin-off of Katie Kazoo series. Humorous Beginner Chapter book series.
Christine Crawford
This book includes themes of making friends and self-control, but even more about skateboarding and giant magical burps. I think my 7-year-old is going to love it.
The kids loved it - found it very humorous. I, on the other hand, did not enjoy reading it.
