To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Die Geschichte ist wirklich lustig geschrieben. Miles, der neue Schüler an einer langweiligen Landschule, versucht sich seinen Namen als Streiche-Spieler zu machen. Aber seine Streiche werden auf mysteriöse Weise von einem unbekannten Streiche-Macher überboten oder vorweggenommen. Niles, der scheinbare Musterschüler und Streber, bietet Miles seine Freundschaft an, auch um sich gegen den Schulrowdy und Sohn des Direktors zu verbünden. Zunächst wehrt sich Miles erbittert gegen Niles Angebot. Aber schließlich werden die beiden doch ein Team und die Schule erlebt den Aprilscherz ihrer Geschichte... Ein gutes, lustiges Buch für Lernanfänger, wenn bereits einige Sprachkenntnisse vorhandenen sind.
I love Mac Barnett. Extra Yarn is one of our favorite picture books of all time. I bought this as a bedtime book to read aloud to my 6-year-old daughter. We both loved it! In fact the whole family loved it! This book did not stay relegated to bedtime for long. We cuddled on the couch on a Saturday afternoon and read it. I started taking it whenever we were in the car to read while my husband drove. You will not want to put this book down; it is just that fun. It is also deceptively simple. The sentences are relatively short and easy to read with a lovely flowing cadence. However, the concepts are sometimes fairly deep. This book never fell victim to the obvious or to the juvenile potty humor that I hate. And the vocabulary, completely fabulous! This gave me the opportunity to teach my daughter several new vocabulary words. I definitely love that! It is practically impossible to find a funny book with such great use of words! I highly recommend this book. We are moving on to the The Terrible Two Get Worse!
A book I probably shouldn’t be reading to my second grader :-). This book is silly and fun. Plenty of humor for the child who is just starting to “get” subtle jokes. It contains a good story that requires one to understand motivation and planning.
I had to read this as part of being a battle of the books coach. So funny I was laughing out loud during class while subbing. I recommended the book to all the 5th graders! I liked the creative way the boys thought up tricks, and it was just realistic enough to think it could actually happen. Easy to read for all levels. This one is staying in our library.
Read this with my grandchildren. We pick a book suitable for the age range 7-10. The two 10 years enjoyed the book very much. The 8 and 7 year old thought it was funny. I also liked the book very much. We intend to read the rest of the series as our book club moves forward. Great fun.
I loved the way this book dealt with the feelings a "new kid" has when everything in their life changes. The characters are quirky and fun to get to know. Miles has to swallow some pride, but the friendship he gains is worth it.
