I think The Best School Year Ever is a good book because there are funny things throughout the whole book. My favorite part was when the Herdmans went to school at night and they put cigarettes on Smokey the Bear's lap and put fireworks on it's lap too. They put a cigar in it's mouth. This part might make kids laugh. I liked the character of Imogene the best. She was tough, but she gave the blanket back to Howard so she could be nice sometimes.
I think people should read this book because it is funny and is a good book for older children who know how to read.
