Mrs. Lilly is Silly

by Dan Gutman
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars

This is book 3 in the My Weird School series. I haven’t read any others but I imagine they are pretty similar. The only thing that bugged me was that Mrs. Lilly encouraged the kids to make up deliberately misleading headlines, but maybe that will help kids clue into the fact that media is biased and not all publications can be trusted. Hopefully it won’t clue kids into the fact that they should make things up about other people! But the resolution helps dissuade that point of view. These books are an early chapter book series to keep kids reading, but personally I’m more likely to recommend Captain Underpants if the silly factor is what’s required.
