Didn't enjoy this one as much. A very quick read. Sachar is good most anytime, but didn't really care for this one. The boys seemed to get a kick out of it. So, not a total loss, right? ( )

Marvin Redpost Why Pick on Me is a funny book that is easy for the reader but is has deeper meanings. It is told from the 9 yr old third grade perspective. It also has black and white sketches that help move the story along. When the littlest thing seems to ruin your life forever. Or does it? This book can help you see how things can turn around with the littlest thing too if you can look at it differently.

I thought this was a funny look into the third grade. Sachar does a good job at letting you tag along with Marvin on his way to taking care of a bully. ( )

This installment of Marvin Redpost is even better than the last. In this book, he is accused of picking his nose and the rumors get out of control. This is a very funny book that any second or third grader would love. ( )

This is a great chapter book for young students to read because it is an easy reader and is also part of a series. It is about a young boy that students can relate to.

This is the second book of the Marvin Redpost Series. This is a book that tells the story of a young boy, Marvin, who is constantly being picked on for being seen picking his nose. I think this would be good to read towards the beginning of the school year when students are starting to pick on each other. This book could be incorporated into a language arts lesson by having students create a Venn Diagram and compare and contrast this book to the first book in the series, which would show their understanding of the two stories. Also, students could write a paragraph on how their school experiences relate to those of Marvin's. ( )
