their latest adventures, both Justin Case and Charlie Bumpers deal with elementary school friendship woes In Justin Case Rules, Tools, and Maybe a Bully, Justin s problems come in the form of a feud with his second best friend, Noah, who begins to physically bully Justin when Justin starts making other friends For Charlie in Charlie Bumpers vs the Squeaking Skull the problem centers on Halloween plans Charlie s friends want to watch a scary movie, despite the fact that Charlie s mom doesn t think it is appropriate and Charlie is secretly terrified of horror films.In his third book following Justin Case School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters and Justin Case Shells, Smells, and the Horrible Flip Flops of Doom Justin Case continues to be a wonderful hero for underdogs everywhere His intense internal life, which includes acting out his emotions through his toy stuffties, makes him come across as a real boy, and his observations about the way his classmates interact with one another are often so honest, they make the reader laugh in recognition and appreciation By showing us details of Justin s friends personalities filtered through Justin s own unique worldview, the author creates an excellent portrait of the dynamics in Justin s fourth grade class Also wonderful are the wry comments Justin makes on the way things are done in fourth grade as compared with third grade and the rambling essays he turns in for his teacher s various writing assignments Just like the first two Justin Case books, this one is completely entertaining from start to finish, with an important and well handled lesson about bullying and standing up for oneself.Though this is the third Charlie Bumpers book following Charlie Bumpers vs The Teacher of the Year and Charlie Bumpers vs The Really Nice Gnome , it is the first one I have read What is impressive about Charlie is that he is just a regular kid having regular experiences This is the kind of book I most preferred as a child, and it s nice to have new titles for this generation that don t always rely on gimmicks to grab the reader s interest It was especially interesting to read this book on the heels of Rules, Tools, and Maybe a Bully because both books deal with friendship problems among boys This is a common theme in lots of pink covered books for tween girls, but it doesn t come up as much in books where the main characters are boys Since social problems are a major part of elementary school for both sexes, it is wonderful to have books that represent that experience from the male perspective Also well done in this book are the scenes where Charlie s older brother tries to help him recover from his fears by scaring him out of his mind every night in his bedroom They are reminiscent of scenes between JD and his brother in The Great Brain Both Justin Case and Charlie Bumpers are great fictional role models for boys and girls in grades 2 to 5, and they are fun to read about, too Parents seeking books that model healthy friendships and family stability will be pleased to discover both series Fourth grader Justin Case is trying to feel his way through his new grade and get to know his new teacher s expectations As he tries to put some of his anxieties behind him, he makes some new friends and takes some chances But he also realizes that one of his friends might just have a tendency to bully others, including himself As Justin tries to figure out what to do about Noah and whether he trusts Cash, a boy he met earlier in camp and to whom no one ever says no, he faces some tough choic Fourth grader Justin Case is trying to feel his way through his new grade and get to know his new teacher s expectations As he tries to put some of his anxieties behind him, he makes some new friends and takes some chances But he also realizes that one of his friends might just have a tendency to bully others, including himself As Justin tries to figure out what to do about Noah and whether he trusts Cash, a boy he met earlier in camp and to whom no one ever says no, he faces some tough choices What I particularly liked about this book is how it shows how quickly someone can go from being accepted to being picked on and how being left out can make someone want to lash out Justin s ruminations on Noah s behavior and the way his classmates treat him when they think he is a tattletale are absolutely right on and serve as great examples for classroom discussion The text, written in a series of diary ruminations, and the illustrations portray many of the perils of fourth grade I m betting that many readers will relate to Justin s fears After all, it seems as though each teacher has his her own different set of rules and expectations, and it can be challenging to figure out what is expected This is the perfect read aloud book for fourth graders to start the school year Justin is a worrier he has been a worrier in all three of his books, but he thinks maybe he won t be such a worrier because he is a fourth grader now Well, Justin never expected that he would make new friends in fourth grade or that his second best friend to start bullying him Justin takes all of Noah s abuse, trying to understand Noah and understanding that violence isn t the answer As the story and bullying p This is the perfect read aloud book for fourth graders to start the school

the story and bullying progresses, Justin s mom leans toward violence, though, which is funny The story is told so softly, just like a worrying child might talk about something he is afraid of very quietly Plenty of topics for discussion on making friends, being friends, tattle taling and bullying We were delighted to discover this third Justin Case book, which continues the story through the first half of fourth grade Gently humorous throughout, and yet quite thoughtful, tender, and sweet This book focuses especially on navigating the many rules of life and social interactions, which can often seem dauntingly at odds with one another It also engages the challenges of friendship, being kind and patient, and responding to rough behavior Justin is a most endearing young protagonist an We

About the Author: Rachel Vail

BirthI was born on July 25, 1966, in NEW YORK CITY, and grew up in New Rochelle, NY, with my mother, my father, and my younger brother Jon And down the street from my future husband, though of course I didn t know that until much later InterestsSome details, I do know I was very into reading and theater, so I read every book I could get my hands on especially realistic fiction, either contemporary or historical and took acting workshops and auditioned for every play in school, camp, or the community I played Peter Pan, Miss Hannigan in Annie, Benny Southstreet in Guys and Dolls, the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz, and lots of extremely memorable chorus parts for instance, I was girl number two in Fiddler on the Roof the one who said We heard about your sister, Chava I didn t care I just wanted to be on stage Waiting backstage before curtain call, after giving my all in a performance, was the best feeling I knew In seventh grade I started taking magic lessons, and by eighth grade I was making all my own spending money by performing at kids birthday parties as a clown named Tallulah I liked the freedom of wearing all that grease paint I could be as wacky and un cool as I wanted I tried dance but felt so clumsy I faked a sprained ankle to get out of the recital I took voice lessons which made me a little light headed and I was afraid of the voice teacher s growling, drooling Doberman and both saxophone and piano, neither of which I ever practiced I did well in school but started a lot of my work at the last minute, in a crazy mad dash, so that it was never late but there were usually careless errors or areas I had to fudge I had this idea that to work hard at something was sort of a negative, an admission that I didn t have natural talent If I wasn t going to be Mozart and have the music or dance, or math, or social studies term paper, or whatever channeled through me from God, then I was just embarrassing myself by all that workmanlike effort I didn t get over that idea until after college, by the way.Career AmbitionsI never really planned to be a writer I planned to be a financial wizard after learning about option spreading at age 10, then a poet after discovering Shakespeare at 11 After overhearing the real power is held by the lobbyists on a class trip to Albany, I planned to become a lobbyist Secretly, of course I always imagined myself as an actress, but that didn t seem hard or important enough, and also I worried I wasn t naturally gifted enough.ParentsMy parents were always great I liked to make them proud, and they trusted me and supported my efforts and interests, which was sometimes weirdly tough There was so little for me to rebel against.As a KidWhen people ask me what I was as a kid, I always feel like my answer is at best incomplete.What are you like, as a kid I m still trying to figure out what I m like as an adult.SociallyWell, things went in waves Sometimes I felt very in , very aware of and tied in to the whole scene, excited by who liked whom, all the gossip, some of it less than kind Other times I felt so alone like there was nobody like me, nobody who liked me, nobody to talk to And much of the time it was somewhere in between A best friend when I was lucky, and a few people in each crowd I liked and who liked me I resisted being classified as a brain or a jock or alternative or popular too limiting I would have to shut down too many parts of myself to be just one type.AdolescenceI went through a very intense stage in middle school Junior High I worried about being too ordinary I also worried about being too weird I also worried about changing states of matter, my inability to be morally certain, ignorance my own and world wide , and making a fool of myself.
