Kid View: The Handbook by Jim Benton
This book was really funny and good. Regularly I probably wouldn’t have picked this book up and read it but it was actually really good. The Handbook was recently sent to me by Jim Benton’s agency (which was super cool!). At first I thought it would be a little bit too young for me since I’m right in between middle grade and young adult. But actually it was perfect and I really enjoyed it!
Jim Benton has a really good sense of humor and The Handbook has very interesting descriptions for certain things. A good example of this is on page 8 it says, “throw open the front door, and start howling like a baboon with its tail caught in a lawn mower.” That is just great! I was laughing about that for a long time!
I recommend this book to every kid around the age of 10 to 12. It is really good!
