Bookworm Buzz

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A "just right," read for 4th graders. If you like Andrew Clements, you will like Troublemaker. This is the story of Clay and his transformation from troublemaker to student. When his brother Mitch returns home after spending time in jail, he makes Clay promise not to get in trouble any more. Clay has a hard time making people believe that he has turned over a new leaf, but ultimately he is successful. Both boys and girls will like this book. I especially enjoyed the way Clay used drawing as a way to deal with his anger. Enjoy!
