Children's Fiction by Stephen Manes.
I read this book to my nine-year-old daughter. It was funny.
It's about a kid who reads a book of the same name and tries to follow all the directions in order to become perfect. I enjoyed it.
However, here's a review from "Anonymous," who disagreed with me:
"I thought it was a kind of a not so good of a book .The reason why is because it was not that exciting it was not that funny. I still liked a little. All and all it was better than a bad book and worse than an ok book. I think it needs more adventure in it too."
Isn't that a hysterical review? That's the blurb I want on MY book cover: "...better than a bad book and worse than an ok book."
