Recommend: I'm wishy-washy on this one. I'm a big fan of Beverly Cleary. I love and recommend many of her books but this one was just rather ho-hum. My son enjoyed parts of it but wasn't really drawn into the story. He (and I) did enjoy the last chapter, though, it was very funny and we wished the rest of the book had been also. If you want to read Cleary, I would suggest the Ramona, Ralph or Henry books over this one.
