What a little gem! In the midst of large and complicated but listless novels lies a genuinely sweet-hearted story. The tale of two friends embarking on a journey of exploring the writing process converts into a personal discovery of the person within. Complete with laugh-out-loud scenarios, jumpy/edgy situations, and a lovely bond that sinks into your heart as softly as a billowing breeze, this novella is unbelievably amazing. Also, this carefully crafted tale proves to have a plot after all. Hey, critics, I guess you have poor judgment! Good Job Avi!!!!

I used this book in my 4th grade classroom to emphasize certain things I wanted to teach about writing. The students loved the double meanings and idioms and we had good conversations about the way the author made writing fun. Personally I think it was cleverly written and fun to read!

As I started reading, ¿A Beginning a Muddle and an End,¿ I thought to myself that the second book would be by far more interesting than the first book. I always have high expectations for Avi¿s books. This time, this book¿everything was the opposite. The plot was a disaster. At first, the beginning was laughable and fun to discuss the funny word usage. Then the book went down hill. The book, ¿The End of the Beginning¿ was about an adventure while ¿A Beginning, A Muddle and an End¿ was about Avon writing. All went well in the first book but then the second book was like a flower wilting in Death Valley on a summer afternoon. I am really sorry, but Avi¿s writing did not impress me in this book. I know that he can write better and include funny parts, but really ¿A Beginning, a Muddle and an End¿ was BLAH!
