This is a good example of realistic fiction because it shows how a little boy goes through his morning routine. His routine is very different from most children, but the reader can still relate to it.Age Appropriateness: Primary/ Intermediate

This book takes us with a young boy on his morning paper route. The illustrations are beautifully done with night time colors. This book shows how even a young person can take on responsibility, doing what they should and need to do when they have to...even when they might rather stay in bed.

This is the story of the paperboy and how he works while everyone else is fast asleep. This book evokes a powerful message about the determination of a young boy to work hard and earn money. The illustrations are beautiful, portraying the quiet of the night and the waking of the early morning sun.

I thought this was a cute story with fantastic illustrations. The story was about a young boy who gets up and delivers his papers. The story takes you through his route with his dog. We see them deliver the papers in the dark and then the sun come up and the neighborhood starts to wake up. The paperboy and his dog finish the route and head home to go back to bed and dream. The story was cute and I think would be interesting for kids. The illustrations are the best part. They are colorful and take up full pages. They Lots of color is used and the shadows and the skies are really interesting as it goes from dark to light outside.

This is a good, contemplative book about a paperboy going through his route, waking at night and returning when his house awakens.

It¿s hard to believe that The Paperboy was written and illustrated by the same guy who brought us Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants! The Paperboy is such a thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated picture book that it seems out of character with Pilkey¿s ouvre. Nonetheless, this story of a responsible and industrious paperboy does bound from the page with verve of the CU, but lacking the bathroom humor. The exquisite illustrations emulate the paintings of Marc Chagall, in media, color, and style, and the writing is restrained and precise, relating the rounds of paperboy with straightforward style. Unlike CU, parents and teachers alike will take delight when their children read The Paperboy.

This job helps a young and egocentric child appreciate the work that other people do, although the paper route is no longer like this. It also has beautiful illustrations that I child will admire as he or she is read to.

The illustrations and the text of this book are truly magical. My 2 1/2 year old son adores it and will continue to get so much out of it as he gets older. I would highly recommend it for any child ages 2 to 6.

This book offers insight into the life of a newspaper delivery boy. It is a book that most any child can relate to. With beautiful illustrations it is a great addition to any collection.
