***Mini Swoons Review***
This was funny, a little gross, and AWESOME! I love the noodle soup page, and the balloon toes, and the dragon, and that the song says poopy! That was so funny! Can you just read it to me again? (How could I say no to that?)
***Mini Swoons Review***
This was very silly. I don’t usually like a lot of rhyming, but this was actually really good. I loved that gross burger he talked about. I kind of want to eat it. And can we get Gryffindor (our dog) to turn green and leap like a frog? (The answer he received was sadly a no!) Also, it’s kind of cool that there are so many different kinds of kids in this book. Most books just have one kind, but this is kinda like my school. The best part is the sick monster face. I’m doing it again. (And he did!)
