Every boy or girl, child or adult, should read this book!,

This review is from: There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom (Paperback)
I am seventeen years old, and I've read "There's a Boy..." at least once a year since I discovered it in 3rd grade. I would like to warn that the given "age range" for reading this book is completely misleading -- no child under nine would appreciate it, and adults can enjoy it as much as children. Louis Sachar is simply the best author of children's fiction today. "There's a Boy" is an effective tool to make kids think twice before teasing classmates. Children who lack self-confidence or have trouble in school will relate to Bradley Chalkers. And everyone can enjoy Sachar's story-telling magic. I treasure my copy of this book, and when my younger brother reached 3rd grade, we read it together. He loved the novel as much as I did, and both of us were sobbing at the end. I know he has learned as much from the story as I have over the years. Do yourself or your child a favor and read this book!
