Qwerty Stevens Back in Time: There are also some challenging words in the book, but other than that it’s a great book. The whole thing starts because Sam is anti-homework, especially the daily fill in-the-blank worksheets his first-year teacher Miss Rasmussen hands out. Everything I write is no good. I give this book 4 treasure chests!

I like the character Snik. To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: I read the book for my book report and i loved it. The setup of this book is quite interesting. Brenton, Snik, Kelsey, and Judy are in 5 th grade and have only thing in common. Brenton is easily the smartest kid in school, so smart that even his parents and teachers have trouble keeping up with him. He is anxious to find out how he is now getting A’s.

When Brenton and his three classmates are assigned to the same study group by their first-year teacher, the others discover that Brenton has created a time-saving gadget to do his homework for him. Of course, they try to get out of trouble, but they fail miserably. There is a boy named Ronnie and he is suspocious when Snickwad starts getting A’s because he never gets A’s. April 5, at Sam’s a newcomer and has had his share of school trouble before; Kelsey quietly carries her grief at losing her father; Judy’s righteous sense of indignation constantly irritates others; and Brenton.

He delivers bits of everything, and gives his books plenty of humor and good-natured sarcasm. The setup of this book is quite interesting. They don’t want anyone to know about it. Can you guess what it is?

The author has written another book with the same characters. Told in alternating voices as all the participants make statements to the Grand Canyon Policethe story unfolds in intriguing fashion. Gutman wummary a talented writer with dozens of children’s books to his credit, and his latest is a funny and thought-provoking tale that should appeal equally to boys and girls. I am still reading, but homewrok life has been subject to some stress and craziness lately.
