VOYA - Alissa Lauzon
Scieszka is determined to provide reading material that boys can enjoy. Expanding upon the success of Guys Read (Viking, 2008) and the Guys Read Web site, he has created Guys Read Library. This ten-volume series will cover different genres "packed with the kind of writing guys enjoy." The first volume, Funny Business, sets the bar high by starting with humor, and Scieszka has recruited some powerful names to contribute to this first anthology, including Adam Rex, Eoin Colfer, David Lubar, Kate DiCamillo, Jeff Kinney, Christopher Paul Curtis, and Jack Gantos. With such a diverse cast of authors, Funny Business has a little bit of something for everyone, from the gross-out funny to the downright absurd. Elements such as a chocolate milk pool, a homicidal turkey, alien invaders, and a mummy mishap will have readers laughing as they turn the pages. The target audience for this anthology is middle grade boys, and this reviewer suspects that they will find even more humor in it than she did. As with most anthologies, this one has a few so-so stories that are balanced by a couple of outstanding titles. David Yoo's "A Fistful of Feathers" and David Lubar's "Kid Appeal" truly stand out, though there is no doubt each reader will have his or her own favorites. Reviewer: Alissa Lauzon

This book is SOOOOO good! Not only is it funny, they're all really well written! My copy isn't on my Nook and the cover is frayed and there are stains all over it. That's how you know it's a good book.
