"CHARLIE JOE JACKSON'S, GUIDE TO NOT READING" BY TOMMY GREENWALD (REVIEW)

WARNING! CLEAR ALL CHILDREN FROM THE ROOM BEFORE READING THIS REVIEW!

This is a delightful book for middle grade children that actually makes them want to read regardless of the title. It turns out that this book is a clever reverse psychology tool that you can use to get your kids to read regardless of their determination not to.

The book is extremely imaginative and written for fun! When Charlie Joe loses his link to NOT reading books, he finds himself coming up with ways to get around actually reading and still being able to figure out what the book is about. The ending is GREAT!

Definitely pick up this book for your child or children whether they enjoy reading or not! It's a fantastic read!

Bad. Very bad.

This book portrayed stereotypes, and books as bad. Books give you imagination and no, you do not get glasses by reading small type. I would not reccomend unless this is a last hope to get a child to read

    Librarian lol

    Love, love,...did I mentioned that I love this book? Currently, I am only on page 87, but I had to hurry and write a review. I have read hundreds and hundreds ofMS books, but I've not lol this much since SKINNYBONES and BUNNICULA. I can't wait to book talk it; my kids will love it too.

    Totally cool

    A parallel universe altogether... the idea seems obvious now that Greenwald has imagined it.. Charlie Joe's hilarious resistance might have put this one on the Bestseller list
