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!
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 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.
