Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy Peel
Earl Wilber is not really known as the most popular kid in fifth grade. Unfortunately for him he has been the victim of the infamous school bully, Eddie McFee. Eddie has repeatedly beat him up after class until Wilbur decides to pay him off each week to leave him alone. Although this seems to solve the problem, his problems have only begun. Eventually Wilbur runs out of his allowance money and refuses to let anyone know what is really going on. Eddie is not going to accept any late payments, and Wilbur is left to figure things out on his own. Fortunately for him, his two best friends Rosie and Maxie are ready and willing to help him get rid of Eddie for good. The question is whether Wilbur can have the courage to use blackmail and extortion to teach Eddie a lesson. All he has to do is convince him that he is dead, but of course that is not as easy as it seems. Bullying is a real problem in schools today, and the emotional turmoil that Wilbur goes through is felt by many children. They can easily connect with his pain and anxiety. As with most children, Wilbur looks to his friends, not his parents or teachers, for support. This book is a good choice for starting conversations with students about bullying in school and how children should or should not deal with the situations they find themselves in.

    To all love help

    To the first one: First off, Steven's a creep, and Nathan goes beyond that. Just smack both of them down. Tell them to quit. No more hint dropping.<p>To the one below: Devon pats you on the head? ._. Mega weird. Just friendzone Devon. Really, just do it. And as for your crush, as I am a guy myself, I can testify to the following fact: the majority of guys are totall whimps around girls. So, he probably just feels weird around you. It's nothing you do, just a guy quirk. So, ease up on him. He sounds like a good guy. He probably really likes you.

    To Love Help

    I agree with what others have said. Let Nathan and Stephan know that you're not intrested, and maybe flirt a little with Max. But don't over do it. Good luck!

    LOVE HELP!!!!!!!NOW O.O

    Okay so here goes. I like this boy and he makes nice/meanish funny comments about me but jokes about them. Now lets pretend my crushes name is Max. Theres two boys who are now in this picture. Lets pretend one is name Nathan and Steven. So Nathan is a guy whos stalking me around school and since i have two classes with him Im losing my mind. In one class he sits far away from me but when i walk up to around the area to get something he starts talking to me and says wierd stuff. I tried to shake him off but i guess he didnt take the hint. Then theres steven who asked me out and i said nothing and now thinks that we are dating. So now i have two stalkers and one crush. U would think that the story isnt going to get worse. But it is! So now that Nathan sits behind and wont leave me alone. I tried to ingore him but he only gets louder and all of this happened just cuz i said "hi". Now onto the crush part. So i really like him and me and him have fun and smile at each other. We play around but nothing seriuos. So my question is.........HOW DO I HANG OUT WITH MY CRUSH WITHOUT GETTING STALKED?!?!

    Girl, you have to draw a line. Tell them youe not interested, and that you want some space. That would drive me nuts, personally.

    more from this reviewer

    no recommendation from me

    Earl Wilbur is an overweight, asthmatic, middle-school aged kid (fifth grade?) who lives with his mom (his dad, who is English, left the family to return to England). Many of the other kids tease him, but a bullying fellow class-mate, Eddie McFee, has been taunting him and even beating him up until one day Earl pays Eddie a dollar not to hurt him, and now Eddie demands a dollar each week to leave Earl alone. Then, Earl's money runs out, so he and his two best friends, Maxie Zuckerman and Rosie Swanson, hatch a plan to get back and Eddie and stop him from bullying Earl. But will it work?<BR/> Whenever I see a book from a secular publisher with the word "God" in the title, I am immediately a little suspicious, and this book did absolutely nothing to allay my suspicions. Oh, Earl does pray occasionally, but his prayers are basically just the childish kind of "bargaining with God" ("please make me a sick so that I don't have to go to P. E. class tomorrow") that many people mistake for genuine prayer. Parents will want to know that the book is filled with euphemisms (geez, darn, heck) and even "O my God" as an exclamation, and I am increasingly frustrated with the ubiquitous use of "OMG" in our society. Such language shows an author's poverty of vocabulary in trying to get across ideas. Yet, even worse is that Maxie comes out with the "d" word. True, it is only once, but I have trouble recommending books where children use curse words seemingly as a matter of course.<BR/> With topics such as childhood obesity and bullying, there could have been a good story here, but the author had to ruin it with bad language and with a zany, almost racy style of writing which I suppose was thought to make it more "relevant" and "realistic" to today's children, whose attention span and literacy level have been decimated by decades of watching television. This book does not so much deal with finding an actual solution to the problem of bullying as with the desire simply to get revenge on Eddie. In fact, rather than handling the situation in a constructive way, it almost seems to me to be making fun of the whole thing.,<BR/> Another thing that I did not like about this book is that adults are generally made to look like incompetent morons. However, when I learned that the author also created the "Junie B. Jones" series, I guess that I should not have been surprised. Other people may like the "Junie B. Jones" books, but the ones that I read I found to be dreadful. Some may decide that Dear God, Help!!! Love, Earl, which was originally published in 1993 , "is a good choice for starting conversations with students about bullying in school and how children should or should not deal with the situations they find themselves in," but we shall not be reading it at our house. It is one of the "Geek Series Chronicles" that also include Maxie, Rose, and Earl: Partners in Grime, and Rosie Swanson: Fourth-Grade Geek for President, and I have to admit that I have no desire to read them either.
