Danny Best is in middle school, he is very competitive and wants to have fun. Sounds like a lot of boys and this book is written with them in mind particularly if they are reluctant readers.

Take the first story in this novel as Danny decides to go for the World record for sticking your tongue out. Try saying red leather, yellow leather, with your tongue out. At the same time he has to look after his full on dog Pugsley and help his friend Fab earn money by washing his father’s car. You have to read it to believe it.

The third story shows how this type of book stimulates imagination and helps with ideas for writing. Danny’s teacher sets them a writing assignment in which no mention is to be made of bums, bottoms, burping, poos or farting. A big challenge for a boy. The story must be about a family. Read what happens.

The illustrations are excellent and contribute to the fun of the story. For middle school and confident junior readers.
