 I recommend Skinnybones by Barbara Park because it was very funny when
Alex Frankovitch asked his teacher if he could help clean the whiteboards so he did not have a baseball competition against T.J. Stoner. Another funny part that happened in Skinnybones was when Alex heard on the loudspeaker that he won the Kitty-Fritter Contest. It was funny because he did not even realize and he was surprised. The funniest part of all happened during a baseball game. When T.J. was about to get Alex out at first base, Alex yelled  "Booga Booga".

 I felt really bad for Alex because everyone, including T.J. Stoner, made fun of Alex because he was the worst pitcher ever. Another time I felt bad was when he ordered a large shirt for baseball and his coach changed Alex's order to a small size. You see, another problem with Alex was his small size about which he was very ashamed.

 I really enjoyed this because of the reasons above and this book would be good for kids who love funny things and for those who love sports. I hope you enjoy my review and the book.
