101 Ways to Bug Your Parents

Gr 4-6‘Twelve-year-old Steve Wyatt, a.k.a. Sneeze, won't be attending the Invention Convention this summer due to a money shortage at home. To make matters worse, his parents have signed him up for a summer school class with the hokey name Recipe for a Book: A Class for Young Authors. A money-making scheme presents itself in the form of a book proposal, 101 Ways to Bug Your Parents, Sneeze's revenge for his ruined summer. Everyone in school wants a copy and is willing to pay. Three-dimensional characters in the form of the narrator's best friend, Hiccup; his nemesis, Goldie Laux; and the mysterious, cool Ace populate this fast, fun read. Sneeze grows in awareness and acceptance of himself and others. The humor and depth of the characters are reminiscent of Louis Sachar's There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom (Knopf, 1987). Readers will hope for further adventures with Sneeze and his friends.‘Lisa Von Drasek, Brooklyn Public Library (c) Copyright 2010.

101 Ways to Bug Your Parents

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Gr. 3^-6. How many ways can you think of to bug your parents? If you are Sneeze Wyatt, at least 101, since you see them as your collateral to fame, fortune, and the San Francisco Invention Conference. Forced to take a summer school course called "Recipe for a Book: A Class for Young Writers," Sneeze finds the class clamoring for his parent-tested ideas, which he compiles into a book in spite of his teacher's reservations. Wardlaw has written a funny story with more substance than is evident initially. The death of a parent, job insecurity, gifted children, teacher respect, true friendship, and even intellectual freedom all find play here. Although adults may find Sneeze's suggestions predictable and overdone--after all, we've weighed in on both sides of this issue--children will probably continue to turn the pages just to see whether they've overlooked even one idea. --Frances Bradburn
