A.J. is goaded into signing up for the school talent show by Andrea, his nemesis. Andrea has SOOOO Many talents that she doesn't know which one she should present, but A.J. soon realizes that he doesn't have any talents. When A.J. gets up and starts babbling in order to cover for his lack of talent, his teacher, Mr. Cooper (who wears a super hero costume), praises him for choosing to do stand up for his talent. A.J. is a little confused by this, since he didn't think that telling jokes was a talent, especially since the class seems to laugh at his regular statements but not at his jokes.
Good Points
The My Weird School books are tremendously popular with 3rd and 4th graders, so it's interesting to see a series with the same characters aimed at slightly younger readers. With their bright, goofy illustrations and funny titles, books like Ms. Daisy is Crazy often appeal to children who aren't quite ready for the complexity of text they offer.

I Can Read books are a great tool in helping children learn to read and encouraging them to enjoy stories. Picture books are often much more difficult, even though the text-to-picture ratio is appealing. I Can Read books have one or two sentences on each page and move very quickly, which makes beginning readers feel a sense of accomplishment when they finish a book.

Readers who want funny stories that will make them laugh will enjoy this easy-to-read version of the popular My Weird School series, and may even be enticed to coming up with a talent show act!
