I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
Teddy is on a new adventure in Teddy Mars Book #3 Almost an Outlaw which is the conclusion to the hilarious and heartwarming series by Molly B. Burnaham the winner of the 2016 Sid Fleischman Humor Award. Before taking on the final book make sure to read Teddy Mars Book #2: Almost a Winner as this is one series I think is better by reading them in order.
Teddy goes from record breaker to rule breaker in this conclusion to the hilarious and heartwarming series by the winner of the 2016 Sid Fleischman Humor Award.
Told in short, accessible sections with fun lists and rambunctious illustrations, the heartwarming Teddy Mars series is perfect for reading aloud. Teddy’s never-give-up attitude will have readers laughing out loud and striving to break world records of their own.
Just like world records, some rules are made to be broken. When Teddy’s great-aunt Ursula moves in, she makes rules about everything from juice to The Guinness Book of World Records to being a good big brother. At first, Teddy is excited. Maybe she’ll finally end The Destructor’s reign of terror! But when Aunt Ursula’s newest rule, PIGEONS ARE NOT PETS, puts the neighborhood pigeons in danger, Teddy may have to bend a few rules to save them.
Fans of Jeff Kinney’s humor and Sharon Creech’s heartfelt stories will love the second book in this hilarious new series about a ten-year-old boy from a big family who dreams of making it into The Guinness Book of World Records.
Win or lose, friends stick together. But when Teddy’s whole class decides to break a bigger, better world record, friends turn into enemies. And Teddy feels stuck in the middle. To fix this mess, Teddy will have to do something he’s never done before—try not to break a record! Can he win at losing before his whole class misses out? And can Teddy be a winner at all without help from his friends? Humor and grit triumph in this story of one boy’s struggle to make peace in a class full of record breakers, a coop full of pigeons, and a world full of wonders.
Told in short, accessible sections with fun lists and highly rambunctious illustrations, the Teddy Mars series is perfect for reading aloud. Teddy’s never-give-up attitude will have readers laughing out loud and striving to break world records of their own.
I think this is a fun series that will especially appeal to boys and boy reluctant readers. Listed for ages 8 to 12 these middle grade chapter books have characters that are likeable and the books take place around school, friends and family which is what most every kid out there can easily relate to. The best part of theses books is that they are genuinely funny! Even I get a good laugh or smile on my face when reading them. It is also full of sporadic sketches which is something I think kids today truly enjoy. The chapters are short so great chances to take breaks but I think this is a book series kids will not want to put down.
