Knucklehead by Jon Scieszka

Knucklehead Jon Scieszka has written a lot of great books for kids like “The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales” and the Time Warp Trio books. Now he has written a great book called Knucklehead about how he grew up in Michigan with his 5 brothers—that’s right 6 boys in his family, 7 if you count the dad and 8 if you count the cat.  This book will make you understand how Jon Scieszka got so funny. You will read about how his brother tried to sell him his own shirt.  And you’ll find out exactly what you should not do when your teacher asks “What’s so funny, Mr. Sciescka—would you like to share with the class?”  You’ll see tons of great photos and read about dirt clod wars at construction sites, exploring sewers, blowing up model planes, made-up swear words, and much, much more.  It’s lucky that Jon and all his brothers survived their childhood.  Lucky for us because now we get to read his hilarious books!
