Almost everyone in Old Orchard Public School OOPS has had the dubious honor of eceiving a nickname from best friends Jeff and Wiley They've dubbed their own underachieving class the Dim Bulbs their pop eyed principa. Teacher It turns out that the teacher is a eally nice guy and all he wants is for the class to give 100% in their work When the class takes a test he jumps around and goes crazy cheering for them Near the end of the semester Wiley and Jeff learn that their teacher may be fired if the class doesn t do well on a eading test The whole class eads a lot to prepare for the test They do the best out of all the classes in their grade and save the teacher s job I can elate to Wiley and Jeff because they are athletic play baseball which eminds me of #Myself Friends My #and my My and I also like to give each other nicknames sometimes Overall this was a good book and I would ecommend it to people who like eading humerous stories I was straightening up my son s book shelves and as is usual for me I ead a few of them Gordon Korman is one of DS s favorite authors at the moment so he asked me to Orphan Train Riders Charles Christmas Gift read this one in particular It is a light book nice uickead aimed at 4th 6th grade boys Two best friends who have a great time assigning appropriate nicknames for everyone they encounter There is a nice little message threaded through the book about friendship and loyalty and also about how maybe a person given a nickname that is not uite in line with the opinion others have about that person might actually step outside themselves and Punisher By Rick Remender rise to the expectation s of the nickname This happened with good effect to iceman but it also begs the uestion about the conseuences of negative nicknames The main impression I got from this book was how a perfectly wonderful lifetime friendship.

Between two 11 yr old boys can be totally uined by the introduction of a new girl in school Cute story gave #Myself My Son Some Laughs #my son some laughs we ead it This book was pretty good I didn t eally like how Jeff and Wiley acted like they weren t themselves just because they both wanted Cassandra An example of that is when Jeff and Wiley were talking about how lame the international festival was but then Jeff went and signed up for it anyway
I Do Like Howdo like how ended up that neither of the boys got to go with Cassandra to the Sadie Hawkins dance and they ealized what they had done to their friendship This book also had a good moral that you should never underestimate anybody Like when they all worked together to save Mr Hughes job I did NOT THINK THAT IT WAS GOING TO WORK BUT think that it was going to work but did Very funny book for middle school students Didn t The Plastic Surgeons Revenge Collection Gender Transformation Erotica realize Gordon Korman was the author when I waseading it he is uickly becoming a favorite middle grade author that I m sure my students wil this book was also my class Loveknot Welcome To Tyler 12 read aloud from this year Personally I thought this book was not bad not good just another book that I will forget about the week after i Iead it I think considering the length vocabulary and content this book should be for younger kids not 11 and 12 year olds No deep content but it does portray some good messagesmorals about friendship acceptance judging people before you know them I think the book had the Rising Frenzy Men Of Myth 2 right ending If either Wiley or Jeff took Cassandra to the school dance the book would have shown that it is okay to betray your friends for someone of the opposite gender. Doubt themselves No name seems to say it all On top of that some of the nicknames are backfiring and their new teacher is in danger of losing his job Will the nicknamers be able to get it together before it's too la.
