Grade 2–4—With four other complaining sons, Will Woodman's parents don't have time to listen when he needs to vent. Frustrated, he hopes that his Grandad will become his confidant. When he spends Saturdays working with the old man, who is the lighthouse keeper in a seaside village, the two strike a deal to listen to each other's "sob stories." Grandad, though, has a penchant for "one-upping." Poor Will can't seem to top any of his unbelievable stories, which involve shark bites on the head, badgers stealing schoolbags, and a bad run-in with tinfoil. Finally catching some time alone with his dad, Will learns a remarkable and amusing story about himself that he's sure can't be topped. In the end, Grandad helps Will to make a significant discovery about himself and his problems, making this a satisfying, funny, and engaging addition to the series. Quirky cartoon illustrations add to the fun, creating a perfect selection for reluctant readers. Fans of Wendelin Van Draanen's "Shredderman" (Yearling), Dave Keane's "Joe Sherlock" (HarperCollins), and Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" (Scholastic) series will enjoy this book.—Jennifer Cogan, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA

He makes a deal with his grandpa, that he can complain to him, but he has to choose the BEST worst thing that happened that week and share only that. The boy then excitedly anticipates bad things so he can then share that with his grandpa. The problem is, according to their deal, grandpa then gets to share HIS worst story if he has one. Naturally Grandpa has a bigger pool to draw from and is always one-upping his grandson.
That is, until our boy is reminded of a story that happens when he was very young. It's quite a silly story though it doesn't really fit the flow of the rest of this book.
I felt like it could have been a bit better , but my daughters laughed and had a good time. I guess it's a keeper for them
