Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 2-4–George Brown moves to a new town and leaves his olds friends behind. Having had a reputation as the class clown and funny man, he is determined to mend his ways and get the kids in his new class to like him without jokes. Then his parents take him out for ice cream and he suddenly lets out the biggest burp ever. It takes over his body and he starts dancing on the table. When the burp pops, he doesn't know what came over him and why he isn't able to control himself. The burp haunts him at home and at school, causing him to do such things as skateboard in the hallways. He tries to control it and, in the meantime, make some friends by just being himself. The kids are a typical cast of characters with the popular boy giving George a hard time and the nice nerdy kid befriending him. The story line makes for a fun read, but it's not outstanding or innovative. Line drawings add humor and break up the short chapters. Since the book ends with George questioning whether he can control his burps in the future, more titles in the series are sure to follow.Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA

Finding books for my 7-year-old that are age appropriate has been a challenge. He's a boy and I get that the Captain Underpants and Big Nate books are fun, but there is just too much potty humor for Mom's taste. George Brown has been a welcome discovery- the humor is funny without being too potty-centric (sure, it's a word). Good for a strong second grade reader through maybe fourth grade.

My 8 yr. old son just loves this book. I feel good about this George Brown series. I'm impressed with the reinforcing of character mixed with tons of humor. My son is finally excited about reading and the bold letters sprinkled in the text somehow helps with his motivation. Thank you for this.... our boys need quality options and this is a great one.

(My 8 year old son wrote the following review. He first read “Eww, What’s on My Shoe.” (# 11 in the series.) He then read #1 (Super Burp) #2 Trouble Magnet) and #3 (World’s Worst Wedgie.)

George Brown is an exciting book full of silly, weird and gross stuff. I am 8 years old and in second grade and I read 4 of the books with no problem. I really liked them and hope you do to.

Our son was reluctant to read this book at first. However, since he absolutely loved the Diary of the Wimpy Kid series (he just turned 8 and has read ALL of the Diary series in 3 months), I wanted him to give these books a try. From the previous reviews I read before making the purchase, I thought this series would be sort of similar.

I've been having our son read out loud on the way to school in the carpool line and we are both constantly laughing! George Brown is a loveable, silly 4th grader- although the cover of the book made me think he'd be much younger. His body seems to overtake him at times and he just can't help what comes out- in this book, it's "super burps." The burps get him into trouble and from there, the fun really begins!

I give this book 5 stars because it's great for young boys who might not enjoy reading. It's light-hearted and goofy and there are pictures which enhance the storyline. I also like that it is a series so that we can see how the character evolves and what antics George will do next!

I bought this for my son who reads above grade level, he just isn't interested in spending alot of time reading. He has a good sense of humor so I thought a funny book might entice him to read for the enjoyment of it. Defintely did the trick, he laughed out loud and he is on to the 2nd in the series. It is probably a little below his level, but it did what it was intended - to help him learn to read for fun.

I am a teacher and all the children love this series! It is funny and a fast read. Katie Kazoo is a series that has the same characters.

My D teaches 2nd grade and chapter books for boys who are new readers are hard to find. We bought the whole set and they hit the spot exactly. We may have to buy another series and the boys seem to be blowing through these very quickly with attests to the fit for this age and gender

This is a great series that my 6 year old LOVES. I am old school and was a little concerned about the body sounds humor...but it is fine. He liked it so much he just read the fourth book in the series by himself in about a day. I would say this is a second grade reading level and up.
