I would give this book four stars because its funny and it has a good story line.
Louis Sachar is a brilliant author that talks about funny things. I like him mostly because he's down to earth and he doesn't involve aliens or anything fiction. His stories are about everyday kids in awkward, hilarious situations. I'm not a good science fiction reader so this book is perfect for me, plus it's not as hard so I won't get confused on what's going on. This is why I like Louis Sachar.
-there is name calling
-the olny person who is nice to goon is in a plot to ruin the biggest day of his life
Gary W. Boone has a nickname...Goon. Nobody likes him and his dream is to be a comedian. His parents are sick of him always telling joke after joke, so when the school has a talent show Goon knows that this is his big chance, but despite bullys and pranks,can Gary prove to everybody he has what it takes to be a comedian?
Show. When he comes out, he had a suit and a hat that was tight on his head. He had this thing that made his hair look like he had shaved it. then in one part of his act he wrapped a bath towel around him. He said, that the soap that he used is what made him bold. Then he starts off telling more of his jokes. He still has on the bath towel. Then he would start talking about the soap again. Then he would start talking about something else. He would just keep going back and fourth from one thing to another. He would never finish one of his jokes. That is why I think that you should read the book to find out the rest.
