No book could be that good, could it? Then my resource students, who could easily contest for the spot of the most ... more

read this so I would know why they are so popular. Easy to read, cartoonish pictures. Gregory is a charactor with lots of selfish ego. At least that is what he tries to portray, He works to protect himself at the expense of others but in the end he figures it out. I suppose he is a normal, middle sc... more

Since buying this book and reading it with my son, I have purchased copies for every single boy I know of around 11 years of age! You'd swear it was written by an 11 year old. It is hilarious.
