I'm not sure whom these stories are written for, but not me and my 6 year old son. They (the 3 of them that were randomly chosen) are not interesting, funny or insightful. I am deleting it.

not a science fi fan. Definitely not a book I want to read to my child or have my child read. Glad I previewed before deciding to read to child

Each story had a great setup but failed to effectively close the tale. If you are looking for an entertaining book of short stories, Move Along! A couple of recomendations that trump this collection are the Weenie series by David Lubar and M is for Magic by Neil Gaiman

They have many good stories that are apporpieate for children and are good for writing summarys.

This is how I feel when I read this book. Well written stories that go nowhere. It seems more like excerpts of potential stories. If you like short stories that go nowhere, this book is great.

This book is not for children!! It has strange ghost stories and none of thetales make sense! Dont waste your time, this is weird and confusing! Its so hard to follow and the stories arent written or ended well! I would give it 0 stars if i could! HORRIBLE!!!

The wording sounds southern, instead of saying "my mom..." they say "me mum..." and that ruined the book for me. :/ Zero stars for me.

If you like funny UNrealistic stories you should get this book. I liked it and I am in fifth grade. Two of the stories you might not want to read to younger kids though. They are both about ghosts. All in all,YOU SHOULD GET THE BOOK!!!!!! :)

To the justin bever thing ITS SPELLED JUSTIN BIEBER
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
Justin bieber is neither gay nor stupid so you should stop disrespectin him and if that really isyour opinion KEEP IT TO YOUR SELF That was ia really mean and i happen to lik J.B. so i took it offensively. So next time think before you post something that you think could possibly cause some sort of offense or negative reaction. And how exactly would you feel if you were justin beiber and you read this on your NOOK????? hmmm. Heres a life lesson for you: THINK BEFORE YOU ACT.
