Charlie Bumpers is really excited when he hears that his Uncle Ron is coming for Thanksgiving! But, his spirits quickly drop when he is told that his very annoying cousin, Chip, will be coming along, too – AND staying in Charlie’s bedroom! A few days into the visit, the Bumpers children, Charlie, Matt, and Mabel, come up with a plan to stop Chip from ruining Charlie’s Thanksgiving. Will their plan succeed as they hoped, or will the holiday be ruined for Charlie? Read the book to find out. This book was an amusing and relaxing book, because there was a good balance between humor and action. As I got more into the book, the plot and the characters became more and more engaging. Also, I appreciated the strong emotions I felt about the characters. The author did a great job; I felt truly irritated when Chip was doing mean and unfair things to Charlie. This part was well written and really funny! My favorite character is Mrs. Walcott, because even though she is elderly, she is very humorous. Two reasons I like her are that she is very kind and has a thick accent. My favorite phrase she said was, “A rocket? On T’anksgiving? ” “Dat a big fun!” She made me laugh the whole time throughout the book! I gave this book 4 stars, since it was well paced and entertaining. It is the forth book in the Charlie Bumpers series, so fans of this story can read more about Charlie. I would recommend this book for 6-9 year-olds and 2nd-4th graders; the younger readers might need a little bit of help. Review by Brooke Z., Age 8, Delaware Valley Mensa

I think children will love this book. Charlie Bumpers is the middle child in the family with an older brother and younger sister. When his teacher assigns them homework to write a couple of sentences about family, Charlie is upset with his siblings due to their teasing. He completes his assignment, but his teacher is not satisfied with his effort and makes him think about it and redo it over the Thanksgiving holiday. Meanwhile the Bumpers are going to have a full house at Thanksgiving. Charlie is thrilled that his uncle is coming but when he finds out that his cousin, Chip is not only going to be staying at the house, but sharing his room he is not a happy camper. Chip is a thorn in Charlie's side who constantly gets him in trouble. When his brother and sister try to help him out, more trouble ensues. Charlie's father finally sits down with the three of them to find out what is going on. A great story with lots of fun characters and events, that will teach children about what family is all about.
