Format: Paperback
Well, I must stay that over the past several years a worrisome trend has reversed itself and we have recently been treated to a growing number of YA books that not only present a good story, but ones that are well written. The reason for this, in my opinion, is due to the increase in quality books such as the one being reviewed here by PV Lundqvist. Readers and teachers are demanding more and they now are receiving it. What a delightful read this one was.

Young Benny (Actually, his name is Bengt, something the young lad changed to Benny on his own, as soon as he was able), wants a pet. He will settle for a cat but what he really wants is a dog. Benny has been blessed with, or cursed with...depending on how you want to look at it, a "creative" mother, ergo the name Bengt; a name that is not ordinary and common, you see. Well anyway, on his birthday Benny indeed does receive a new pet, not a cat, not a dog, not even a cool big lizard; no, no, no...a Vietnamese Potbellied pig no less!

And so we are instantly drawn into the life of Benny, a kid who wants what normal kids his age want; acceptance, making the baseball team, no hassles from bullies and of course a dog. Like real life though, not all always turns out the way our young lad would like. There seems to be trouble from every direction. There is of course the acceptance factor, relationships with family members and life's lessons to be learned.

This is a well told tale of growing up; of being at that very strange and difficult age when a boy is leaving childhood behind and is learning to join the adult world.

Format: Kindle Edition
Not Just for Breakfast Anymore is a book about standing up for yourself - about dealing with bullies of any age; about being who you are; and also about learning to recognize real friends, and to appreciate your family.

Just like Benny, the hero of this book, my nine-year-old son is a baseball player and really wants a dog. He could relate to worrying about making the team, and to having to deal with people who try to make fun of your name, or your pet, or what you do in your spare time, for reasons that may have nothing to do with you. The book has very funny moments - my son loved the part where the pig is on the loose in the house for the first time - but it's not just another Diary of a Wimpy Kid: it has depth, and warmth. Benny's relationships with his mom and his dad are believably portrayed; it is interesting to watch Benny come to see both his parents in a new light. Benny's classmates and the townspeople are people you recognize. And while the story ends well, Benny learns that some things are worth their price, and some are not - something many mid-graders have to figure out.

Though girls could certainly read and enjoy this book, I would particularly recommend it for boys in grades 4-6. As the parent of a fourth-grader, I know there aren't all that many good stories for boys in this age group on the market, so I really appreciated finding this - hope to see more along these lines.

What a great read! This book was not a run-of-the-mill kids book. It tackled old themes refreshingly. It deals with self-esteem, standing up for what you believe in, and keeping an open mind. Surprisingly not pedantic. I think any kid would be lucky to read this book :)

Rating: 5/5

My 4 year old son absolutely adores me reading to him, and when he saw the cover of this book, he demanded that I read it to him right away. Both of us really enjoyed the story!

He loved it because it was story of a pig. I loved it for the lessons that I've seen him learn from it, even though we only finished it a few days ago. He was deepened by my teachings of self-esteem and standing up for not only what you believe in, but for what is right. We both enjoyed the story of a young boy given a unique birthday present/pet, and how sometimes you get the things you didn't even know you needed until you received it. The story flowed so well, I didn't feel any thing was lacking in how one person got from one place to another, and the quest that our young hero took was very riveting. The time spent in the rain storm in a log was worthy of college literature class discussions on symbolism. And while I read into the book more than my son did, he loved it too. He enjoyed growing with the characters and the pig.

Now, please get him off my back about why we can't have a pet pig in our apartment!

I really enjoyed this novel about a young man, his "unique" pet, and the fight with the town to be able to keep the pet. The book is well written, well thought out, and would enhance any young adult's library. It gets kids back to being kids, not vampires, not werewolves, just kids, pets, and baseball. I'd highly recommend it.

Not Just For Breakfast Anymore PV Lundqvist

A boy and his pet overcome being the new kids on the block and learn many laudable lessons.

I don't know where to start, there were so many things I liked about this book. This would have been entertaining if it had been a boy and his dog but a boy and his pig makes it much more interesting.

Benny is so likeable because he is so normal. He shows the fears and insecurities that are ubiquitous to human beings let alone children. His parents are not perfect nor are they buffoons.

The conflict is not violent but it is believable. Bullying is a hot topic at the moment. Lundqvist paints a more realistic approach than many authors. He also show the impact a negative family life can have on creating bullies without in any way becoming preachy.

The friendship between Major and Benny and the impact reality has, particularly in hard economic times, is poignant. All of us have been there at some point in our lives.

So many laudable characteristics are exhibited that it would be tedious to list them all. Lundqvist painted real live people, showing emotions and empathy as well as pettiness and anger. Fletcher is icing on the cake. He brings humor and pathos into the story line.

The title is indicative of the humorous attitude of the author. He illustrates that humor and wisdom in his blog which is linked below.

I really enjoyed this book.

I strongly recommend the book!
