    The Sloppy Copy Slipup

    I¿ve never got a zero on a school paper but reading ¿Sloppy Copy Slip-Up¿ made me feel as if I did. Dyanne Disalvo used descriptive writing in this book. This book was fictional and is probably good for ages 8-11. I think that this book¿s theme deals with schoolwork and telling the truth. The problem this book addresses is getting a zero on a paper. The main character, Brian Higman, got a zero on a homework assignment and he is telling Mrs. Fromme, his teacher, why he couldn¿t do the assignment. I would say this book is entertaining because you don¿t know if Brian will get a second chance. I agree with all of the author¿s messages. One of which is that the author lets Brian¿s problems work out. I think this sends out a good message. That message is that you should always tell the truth and sometimes everything will work out. One possibility the book suggests is to tell the truth and you might be rewarded. To support my agreement with the author I think of ¿The Boy Who Cried Wolf¿ story. In that story, the boy doesn¿t tell the truth and then when he is telling the truth no one believes him. The book affected me by seeing what Brian went through just by not doing his homework and it made me feel like I wouldn¿t want a zero even more. I thought this was a good book and very believable. If you want to see what happens in ¿Sloppy Copy Slip-Up¿, you¿ll have to get a copy of ¿Sloppy Copy Slip-Up¿.
