I, Brunoby Caroline Adderson, Helen Flook
Bruno is a boy with particular tastes and ideas. He will not, for example, eat anything green. He spends one day as Sir Bruno and another as the Queen. He is an entrepreneur and he understands the language of Car. Bruno is a boy worth knowing.
Bruno is young boy with a quirky personality all his own. Readers learn more about him in each chapter, which shows a different facet of Bruno's identity. For instance, Bruno avoids eating any food that is green; the little bit of green zucchini found at the bottom of his bowl of macaroni and cheese sends him in a frenzy. His accommodating parents prepare his color-themed meals so that he eats all brown foods for one breakfast, orange foods for lunch, and so forth. No green food is allowed in his monochromatic meals. In his "dramatic" adventures, Bruno dresses up as the Queen one day and meets people on the way to the library as he walks with his mother. Then, there is the time when he is Sir Bruno and he slays dragons to keep the streets safe on the way home from the park. Whether Bruno is speaking the language of Car with "OooOOO!" or "Nee na! Nee na!" or he is finding a way to avoid writing his name, readers will find him to be quite the unique character. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
Read an Excerpt
Bruno gobbled up Mom's macaroni. It tasted so good! Then he saw something in the bottom of the bowl. Something was hidden in the cheese. "Ah!" he screamed. "There's green in my macaroni!" "It's just zucchini," Mom said. "Just a tiny little bit." "It's green!" Bruno put down his spoon. He wasn't hungry anymore.
