In the story Freckle Juice, I met Andrew. I think Andrew is funny because he wants freckles like the kid who sits in front of him. His name is Nicky Lane. He has a lot of freckles. This girl named Sharon overheard Andrew ask Nicky Lane how to get freckles. Sharon says she has a secret recipe for freckles. Is Sharon pulling a prank on Andrew? Does Andrew really believe that there is such a thing to help you get freckles? Read this book to find out.

I think this book is funny because Andrew gets in trouble for funny things. Like Andrew bent over to try and get the secret formula but Andrew fell out of his desk. My favorite part was when Andrew ran home because Andrew was exited to try out the secret formula. Andrew couldn’t wait to try out the secret formula. I think Andrew is funny because he goes through a lot of trouble just to get freckles. Like Andrew put marker all over his face to pretend he had freckles.

I would recommend Freckle Juice to someone who likes funny stories. I think it is funny because Andrew gets in trouble just to get freckles. If you are a person who likes funny books you should read Freckle Juice. I think that this story teaches you that being yourself is okay.
