Reviewed in the United States on August 2, 2008
I read this book to a class of third and fourth graders, mostly boys. I had no idea that the students, the aides, the teacher and I would all enjoy it so much. There were days when we could not stop laughing. I think it is one of the all-time funniest books for children I have ever read. I would definitely put it in the top three.
I taught elementary school for twenty years and also spent many, many hours reading to my daughter, so this rating comes from someone who had read lots of great and not-so-great books. Everybody-- the 8-10 year old students and the 30-60 year-old adults-- loved the chapter about the unibrow most of all. Just thinking of it makes me laugh. As you can see from the age range of the people in the classroom while I was reading the book, the authors successfully appeal to a very wide audience.
I am delighted to see that Mike Knudson is coming out with a second book in early Sept.; I can't wait to share it with my class. I hope he realizes how much the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students (especially boys) of America need Raymond and Graham to keep us laughing.
