it was amazing

Read from August 25 to 28, 2011

There is a real hole in the marketplace for good, funny, well-written, fun-to-read-aloud, illustrated chapter books that can appeal to kindergartners AND third graders (ok, so maybe the marketplace isn't out there solely to serve the needs of my family...feh!). A lot of them are, honestly, kind of awful. Loved this one. Unexpected and funny, and it was kind of refreshing to have the bully be just...a bully. The adults try to make it seem like the bully must just be sad and lonely, but no, turns out he's just a jerk. Because, you know, that might be the more realistic angle, and sometimes you need an invisible wild animal friend to help you navigate fourth grade. Plus illustrations by Harry Bliss! Can't go wrong!
