I have been a fan of Jon Scieszka (rhymes with Fresca) since The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by A. Wolf was published 20 years ago. Can you name another book that introduces the unreliable narrator to second graders? A former teacher, Scieszka - the first National Ambassador.

This is a memoir that I enjoyed more than I expected. Being a member of the author's generation, I could relate to some of the cultural references of his early childhood. Comic book titles that I loved to read back then and some TV programs that I watched were part of his early childhood. I couldn't help but laughing at many of his small anecdotes. One of my favorites is when he decides to order plastic soldiers that were often advertised in old DC comic books and his disappointment at the size of these soldiers. I thought it was funny because I always wanted to order these but never did. I bought this book because I thought it would have been useful to the classroom when discussing memoirs. Although it is not as popular as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a fictional text, undoubtedly it has some space in a 4th to 6th grade classroom as long as you know how to adapt it.

Hysterical book! The author does a nice job of making the reader feel like they are present in the story. I used this book as a Read Aloud in my 5th grade class and my students loved it! I changed a few words as I was reading aloud so that it would be appropriate for 5th graders, but was able to get the point across to the students. Both they and I very much enjoyed this book! Author is wonderful!

My son got this from the Easter Bunny and whenever he reads it, I can hear him laughing. It's a great book about growing up in a house full of kids. It's nostalgic, but not preachy. I read it, too, and have no regrets. You can't beat it for a seven-year-old!

Pee swords, fried urine, and cat yak.....what more could a 7 year old kid want in a book? This is such a sweet and funny collection of stories about the author's experience growing up in a family of 6 brothers. Each story is only 2-3 pages long, which is perfect for kids, and most of them are about everyday things like chores and haircuts and summer time and Cub Scouts. Its funny, and endearing. I enjoyed it as much as the kids. We wished it were longer.

I think I would stick to 4th to 5th grade boys. As you can imagine with 6 brothers their is some potty humor. It would have appalled my prom and proper 10 year old self but, after living with my "pull my finger" husband I have loosened up and enjoyed the book to read with my tomboy and a group of boys.

These were great stories about the six Scieszka brothers' adventures, while they were growing up. I couldn't read them without laughing, and I felt a sense of nostalgia as I remembered my own childhood. My whole family enjoyed the book.

Hilarious! I plan to read this book to my 4th and 5th grade students. It's about time books get published that speak to a boy's heart.
Perfect read aloud for my 5th grade class doing a Narrative Writing Unit! Hilarious book.
