It's about a kid who found a book and it said how to be perfect in just three days. Now of course he wasn't perfect! But he still took the book. First, he wore a sack of broccoli. The next day he didn't eat. The last day he couldn't do anything except sip some tea. Then he messed up and he thought he had to start over. Then he thought he didn't need to follow the book to be perfect. He then found out that the book was all a joke. B.B

This story was so funny I laughed so hard tears were coming down my face.I thought this book was okay, but my favorite part was when Doctor Silverfish told Milo to go steal a gorilla from the zoo, but he was just kidding.

I thought it was kind of bad because. The chapters were to long. And I wanted it to be more a comedy story. It needs more adventure too. It was not very exciting. But I liked the part when the book fell on his head. It was an ok book.

If you are guest reader for third-fifth graders, you can read this with a dramatic and quick voice in about 50 minutes. I've had two separate and entire classes of kids enrapt for this book. It is a spoof of the fix-yourself-quick books many adults grab off the shelves and it delivers a message about being less hard on yourself.

The main character is in the library looking for a book. Out of nowhere a book fell off the shelf and hit him in the head. He picked it up and it was about how to be perfect in three days. He does all of the weird things the book told him to do. After he did all of the weird things he was fixing to read the last page. Whenever he read the last page he figured out that just a big joke. I would recommend the book to anyone who likes a good book and is easily amused. I like the book because the idiotic things that reminds me of myself. So if you want a funny book check out Be Perfect In Just Three Days.

this book is kinda dumb becuse I would never wear a stalk of broccili around my neck for a day and I would never not eat for a day and i wouldn't do nothing for a day either. That is why it is kinda dumb

I liked the book because it is funny. It is also wierd. It is Interesting.I liked Dr.Silverfish because he is funny he makes up funny jokes. If I were Milo I would not wear a stalk of brocolli to school.I would not listen to him about not eating for a day.
