This is a great book for boys We ve read pretty much everything and Timmy is right up there with Captain Underpants and Magic Treehouse My son loved Timmy, loved Total, and laughed hysterically at the words Weevil Bun every time he read them When we finished the book, my son asked When can we get the next one Which, in boy speak, is the highest compliment one can bestow on reading material.
My son has a best friend whose parents have recently divorced, so this book also provided a platform for discussion of what it means to be a single parent, how life can change sometimes and how we have to make the best of it The Bowling Turkey s stupid car tricks also gave us a chance to talk about car safety and how grown ups can be wrong sometimes I have to say that this book grabbed my heartstrings as kids books rarely do.
