I hated this book.When I got this book, I thought it was gonna be a funny kind of kiddish book like Diary of a Wimpy Kid.But no, it was the opposite.It was terrible.I didn t understand the plot at all.Also throughout the story I kept getting confused.I wouldn t know what was happening or why.I never really understood what the Safety Patrol had against Simione.Why did this all start and why are they mad at her.Even though I was confused at the end I still figured out what had happened but still r [...]

Edgy But Cheerful Middle Grade HijinksNick, Molly and Karl, the heroes of this book, are bright, engaging and observant characters Nick s running commentary on all things elementary schoolish and the dialogue among and between these kids is priceless There are some sharply observed moments and there is occasionally a real edge to the goings on, but that just elevates the book beyond the usual diary hijinks fare that s aimed at a slightly younger reading crowd.On top of that we have a number of a [...]

I won a copy of this book on Giveaways This was a cute Middle School level book about a group of kids that don t quite fit in for one reason or another They re the type of youngsters that would enjoy reading a book of this type Amusing and intriguing at times The numerous comic strip style illustrations probably appeal to kids, though I found them a little tiresome constantly interrupting the story I was not familiar with the series I think my grandchildren will enjoy it.
Quick review not quite as amusing as Bully Bait , but still has plenty of fun Our trio of main characters get fluffed out a little , and even the grandmother gets in on the action I would have liked a little involvement from Emily , but I m sure she ll continue to be a presence in future installments Bully Bait has been a hit in my children s department, so I know this volume will please as well.
I have this weird feeling I read the first one, but I don t think I did I don t have a record of reading it And I ve been keeping track since about 2009 So I m confused However Putting that aside I love this kind of format of book, where it s partial comic partial text I loved the story, the characters, the mayhem It was enjoyable It was fun I m so excited that I own this book Huzzah If you enjoyed books like the Dork Diaries or Timmy Failure, I think you ll like this book.
I received this book through First Reads My 10 year old son who is also a big fan of the Wimpy Kid books LOVED this second book in the series as well as the first We had a few laugh out loud moments We both loved the illustrations throughout the book, I feel they encourage busy boys like my son to read .
Nick, molly and Karl friends become the school s Safety Patrol after they deal with a bully at school The book will have you laughing as the story unfolds This book will be enjoyed by the younger students because of the creative pictures and the humor of the plots in the story An enjoyable read I highly recommend this book.
Asher 9yo read Very good Nick is trying to get his friends back from the new kid named Simone It goes wrong and he gets suspended from going to a water park which he hopes he will finally be tall enough to ride a zip line.
Nick and the other members of the Safety Patrol are back Another great book in this series that is sure to appeal to young readers.Requested and received digital ARC of this book from publisher though Net Galley.
The odd squad and their budding friendship is set on shaky ground when a new girl from France decides that Molly is bff material I found myself laughing out loud at their antics Outrageous and possibly over the top, but hilarious Give this one to fans of the wimp.
My 10 year old son loved this book He is not much of a reader but this one kept his attention Any book that can keep a 10 yr old boy reading is a good book in my opinion This book gets 5 stars from this mom and librarian
I think my sixth grade boys would like this in my classroom, but a bit too random and scattered for my tastes It was a blend of narrative and graphic components, which I liked better than just a pure graphic novel It was a fast read.
It is a great book, I really like thecliffhangerat the end And it is for sure a good read for people of many ages.
Doesn t over do the bullying issues.
I absiloutly loved this book It is so funny
Definitely read and gave away to a jr high school student, awaiting feedback from them.
I enjoyed this book I think students in grades 3 5 will like it With a nice combination of text and cartoonish illustrations, it will appeal to many who are developing readers.
