One Star Review Guess Who? (#25)

Can you guess the classic children’s book by its scathing one-star review on Goodreads or Amazon?

I don’t understand why this book is a classic or well-liked. It’s actually about a horrible boy, who therefore has a horrible day. He’s a brat. I don’t think its a good book for kids to read and I refuse to read it to my 3 year old and teach her lessons on how to be a bad child.

  1. I should tell you that I love this column. I mentioned it to plenty of authors and illustrators at SCBWI.

  2. This column is always fun!

    And I remember loving #25 as a child. I still sometimes think of it when I’m having one of those days to remind myself that some days are like that (even in Australia)
