For the smallest kid on the baseball team, Alex "Skinnybones" Frankovitch has a major-league big mouth! But when he brags his way into a pitching contest, this might be one mess that not even Alex can talk his way out of.

Skinnybones is always getting into trouble- but when his lies force him to look like a fool in front of everyone at his baseball games, he has to own up to the fact that he has some lessons to learn.

This book is a good read-aloud and has interesting details and vocabulary to use in discussions. ( )

This was an excellent read aloud for third graders.

Loved it. This book inspired me to write my first middle-grade comic novel, DUSTIN GRUBBS: ONE-MAN SHOW! ( )

This is a good book for any age. It really teaches a good lesson about not to brag all the time and make things up. Skinnybones learns that he shouldn't brag and lie about something that he can't do because then everyone will find out that he is lying and that is a problem that is hard to face.
