School! Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School by Kate McMullan and Illustrated by George Booth
School! Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School written by Kate McMullan and Illustrated by George Booth was a "punny" book. It was about a kid named Ron Faster. He goes to Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School with Luke Out, Dewey Haveto, Oopsie Spiller, Ivanna Shack, Viola Fuss, Adam Up, Izzy Normal, Gladys Friday, Iona Tricycle, Anita Dawg, and Chucky Upkins. Mr. Stuckinaditch drives Ron's bus and loves Ms. Gelia Seeyalater. Later in the book he proposes to Ms. Seeyalater. Ron's parents are retired cooks and race car drivers. He has a sub every day except Friday when Mrs. Petzgalore is back. He has beenie weanies on a bun every day except Friday. Janitor Iquit and Assistant Quitoo quiet every day except Friday. His parents look for jobs every day except for Friday. His bus driver gets stuck in a ditch every day except for Friday. If you want to find out what happens on every day except for Friday, read the book.
I think this book is for seven or eight year old boys because it is a story about an elementary school aged boy. The comics were funny and I thought the illustrations were good. Overall it was an okay book.
My eight year old brother read it and this was what he thought of it. He didn't really like it. He liked the fifth chapter where Viola Fuss said "Wowee, Friday". He didn't get the puns and didn't like chapter one.
