Two wrongs don't make a right. What a great lesson for all kids to learn and reading a book is one of the best ways to learn. The Birthday Book Club Snatching has some fantastic themes - the relationship between siblings, developing friends, telling the truth, dealing with being teased and putting things right. It is a fun read that will keep children interested. I personally like Simon World - where Simon disappears to avoid the present. The story itself tackles everyday kid issues with a sense of innocence and leaves the reader with the understanding that honesty is the best policy. This is certainly a book that could be enjoyed by all ages.

Although the title of this book describes the plot of the story, it does not do justice to the adventures that take place within these pages. Come battle Neothors in the Galaxy Bratheria with Simon, or maybe your fantasy would be to revel in the Revolutionary war with the Redcoats attacking. Whether you fence with Simon and the aliens on planet Meptee, survive on Blackbeard's ship with pirates, or dodge the Nazi soldiers in World War II, you will experience Simon's sometimes brutal and extreme imagination. Throughout the story Simon's fantasy is to have someone he can count on always as a good friend.

Simon is viewed as an odd child, whispered about, falsely accused, and laughed at, and all because others are not receptive enough to realize the creative genius within him. The Birthday Book Club Snatching is filled with life lessons, history,sibling kindness, Dyslexia,awareness of those different,fantasy, friendship, bullies, daydreaming, stealing, knowing right from wrong, illegal aliens, educational content, and making the right choices. The most entertaining aspect in the book is of course, Simon's vivid imagination. The most virtuous is honesty.

This is a great book for boys, although I'm sure girls will find excitement within these pages that entertain as well. This is a well written book from The Melinda & Simon Series, authored by Anne Burack Sayre. I give five ***** stars for this book for the wide range of content, entertainment and life lessons it provides for middle grade kids. Great book!

I gave this book to my neighbor's kids for Christmas (elementary school) and they both loved it. There's an older girl (3rd grade) and a younger brother (K) so the girl liked that Melinda was in charge in the story and the boy identified with Simon. Their mom liked that the two kids stuck together! They're all looking forward to the next book.

The Birthday Book Club Snatching by Anne Burack Sayre is an imaginative story that teaches children honesty is always the best policy even when a lie provides an easy way out.

Melinda and her little brother Simon are students at Spring Valley School. Simon struggles with making friends and soon finds his classmates accusing him of stealing the Birthday Book Club books from the library. Melinda is determined to clear Simon's name and decides she must solve the mystery of the missing books. Simon, who often daydreams about historical events, isn't too excited to help Melinda. Coerced by his sister, Simon reluctantly agrees. As the story unfolds Melinda does solve the mystery, but along the way Simon also finds a friend. Now, the children must decide if they should tell what they know about the books or protect Simon's new friend.

The Birthday Book Club Snatching sets an excellent example of the importance of fun, friendship, family, and most importantly honesty.

This is a charming book that focuses on doing the right thing, event when it's tough, friendship, and the complications of growing up. When the Birthday Books from the library go missing, and Simon is wrongly accused. It is up to him and his sister to solve the mystery, and stop the bullying.

This story highlights a strong relationship between siblings, and the development of an unlikely friendship. The sibling relationship was very sweet between Melinda and Simon, as it was relatable to most people, sweet in their protectiveness, and fun in the resolution. The friendship that developed between Jorge and Simon was well developed. From initial distrust and misunderstanding, they developed a friendship and solved a couple of mysteries- who took the missing books, and how to cope in the complicated world of elementary school.

This is a charming book, and I look forward to the next in the series.
