"It was fine." - Albert, fifth grade boy. "I chose to read this during the time after dinner when my mom says I have to read for thirty minutes before bed. I liked it so much that for three days in a row, I read an extra five minutes and only complained twice." - Porge, fifth grade boy. "I read this book." - Jake, fifth grade boy. "It was really funny, I laughed out loud. Probably number two or three on my list of favorite books of all time." - Timmy, fifth grade boy. "I found the thinly veiled allusions to a British short story tradition ripe with humorous and acerbic wit both instructive and edifying. What I did not appreciate was the vindication of troublemaking." - Charlie, fifth grade boy. "Pretty much the coolest book ever. I've read it like seven times, it only took me like an hour because I'm a fast reader. Best character by far is Greg." - Greg, fifth grade boy. "A moving portrait of life in the trenches." - Leo, fifth grade boy. "I am speaking with my lawyer, and whoever wrote this will soon be contacted." - Mr L, fifth grade teacher.
