By Lori Katz on July 6, 2012
Format: Hardcover
Day after day for a week we read about the odd and unbelievable things that happen to Archie and his new friend Cyd. While odd things have always happened to Archie, having Cyd there as a witness helps him cope and gets him out of trouble. From being accused of robbing a jewelry store to being mistaken as a kidnapped kid, each occurrence is more bizarre than the previous one. The twist at the end is brilliant! Archie's mother can never understand just why he doesn't complete any task or errand and exclaims time again "I don't believe it, Archie!"

This is a very funny story that will appeal to boys and girls. The chapters are not too long and there are lovely illustrations that help explain the action. There are many British words that may need to be explained to some readers for example trainers are sneakers and pounds are dollars. Recommended for second grade (advanced readers)through sixth grade(reluctant readers).

My younger daughter is slower to become interested in a book than my older daughter. I had her read this one out loud to me during reading time, and I was happy to see how interested she was in it. We both laughed together and enjoyed the cute plot.

I read this book to my third grade class. They loved every last part of it. The book has great humor. The last chapter was great because it tied the entire book into one. Perfect read!!
