But, it's funny. I read it to my daughter when she was little, and even I couldn't wait to read the next chapter.



The above review from a parent is the exact reason a kid would like this book.
Tasteless is exactly what we are looking for

Re: Trying to find a new obnoxious book series for my son

My son who is 8 has been obsessed with Beverly Cleary (Ramona, Henry, Mouse and the Motorcycle) and also Judy Blume (fudge books). He also LOVED Diary of a Wimpy kid and read them when he was 7. He wasn't sure about Beverly Cleary so I got him Ramona Forever on book cd from the library and he loved it and then he wanted to read them! He read everything Beverly Cleary read this year for third grade! Oh, and he LOVES Shel Silverstein. But I read them to him. He won't stop laughing.

They are fast reads, though, so not a lot of bang for your buck.

We have the Bad Kitty ABC book and it is funny

Oh, I haven't seen it! Is it a picture book or more of a chapter book? If it is a picture book, my youngest would adore it because he tries to like the chapter books with the big kids.
