One of the funnier of R.L. Stine's writings, Bernie gets into a really tight jam and is saved by the thread of his shorts!

When you care to sit with your child to learn where an adolescent's thoughts wander to, take it with a grain of salt. When you consider the absolute genius behind this troublemaker who (unlike Junie B. Jones) can carry on a conversation with larger than two-syllable words, your mind will reel with wonder.

Having been a school bus driver in the past, I must wonder if this was modeled after a real boy. Hmmm.

This is the fourth book in Stine's newest series "Rotten School". Very humorous and full of that toilet humor young boys are so fond of, this book will appeal to fans of "Captain Underpants" or the books by James Marshall. The fourth grade football team at Rotten School known as the "Rotten Apples," has never won a football game. At least not until Jennifer Ecch joins the team, wanting to be close to her boyfriend Bernie Bridges. He refers to her as the Nightmare Girl, but if she can get the team to win with her large size and blocking abilities, that's just fine with him. In fact, if she can lead the team to the National Championship he will even wear the 10 sweaters she plans to knit for him that read, " Bernie loves Jen" and he'll get a date with the beautiful cheerleader April-May June. Unfortunately after winning every game Bernie realizes that the last game must be played against the roughest team, the "Bone Breakers" and he sets out to find a way to sabotage their winnings. Illustrated in black and white line drawings with washes of gray and includes a map of the Rotten School campus. The book is chock full of stereotypical characters - the cheerleader, the rich kid, the athlete, the geek - which fit perfectly with the style of the book. Humor abounds with names like R.U. Dumm Football Field and Headmaster Upchuck, illustrations of the Hammerhead Sharks showing their helmets in the shape of hammerhead sharks, and puns throughout. What boy is not going to love this?

I have enjoyed watching my 10 year old boy read this series. He thinks this book series is funny and has story ideas that are on his level. He has also enjoyed the Mostly Ghostly series by R.L Stine. (all eight books!) It is the first series that I have seen him read through faster than any other books in the past. It is great to see your child reading for fun and not because he is being told to read. I would recommend this series if you have a child who doesn't always "want" to read. This series may draw him in and get him wondering what is on the next page!

I love this series. I use it as a substitute to read in my older grade classrooms. The kids listen attentively and laugh through me reading the story. Its funny even for adults.

If your kids hate reading or love it, get these books. These books will keep their attention and have them coming back for more. If you are trying to get your kids into chapter books, get these. RL Stine has done it again. Great Books (all of them)
