Use a little caution when reading this book...
I had to give it 4 stars because I was so impressed with how well it captured my sons attention. This book consists of 8 short stories that are divided up into little chapters, so it's ideal for kids with a short attention span.
I would definetly recommend 4 of the short stories, there are some possible problems with the other short stories I will talk about.
Each short story with my review is as follows.
Without a shirt-involves a skeleton so could be a little scary. My son read, and loved this one, though.
Skeleton on the Dunny-I thought this was a bit too scary, so I asked my son not to read it, but it is also quite funny. My favorite is when the main character has to go fish out his "plate" (a fake tooth) from the local water treatment plant.
Lighthouse blues-I also asked my son not to read this one because it was about ghosts...I just think maybe it's a little too scary. Although, my son doesn't seem to lose sleep like some of my siblings, and even my daughter, too, seems easily frightened. Maybe I'm worrying about him too much.
The strap box flyer- A very clever story that my son and I both enjoyed, although it's a little on the
Cow Dung Custard-This story is so perfect for boys my sons age. They just love this sort of thing, and it's parent approved, not too obnoxious.
Wonderpants-Not my favorite story, but there's nothing scary about it. My husband would hate how much they talk about underwear, and it's a little strange that the boy wears pink underwear with fairies on it, but it was reasonably entertaining.
Lucky Lips-This too was pretty funny, but lots of kissing going on. Nothing I found that was of any concern though.
I'm missing one story and I can't figure out which one it is. I do want to read more of Jennings' books, though. I think this is more along the lines of the type of book my son will be interested in reading, so I'll look for more of it.
It was not on the AR reading list, but I would say it is approximately a fifth grade level book.
