Gerald Mc Boing Boing

Written by Dr. Seuss • Illustrated by Mel Crawford

This is a story about a little boy who always makes sounds. Everyone was mad at him because he was saying stuff like, "boing boing," "cuckoo," "cling cling," and "boom." So he decided to run away until someone said, "Stop." Read the story to find out the rest.

I think this story is funny because he says, "Boom!" and then the person calls the doctor. It's funny because Gerald Mc Boing Boing is saying words like boing, and he became a star. It's funny because when he kept saying, "Boing Boing" he was saying lots of sounds and people got mad at him. My favorite part is when the mom fell down and Gerald Mc Boing Boing got cookies. I like Gerald Mc Boing Boing because he makes a bunch of sounds, and it makes me laugh.

I would tell my big brother to read the book because I think he will laugh. I would tell my little cousin to read it because she wants to read. I want my dad to read it to see if he laughs.
