Written by Louis Sachar

Marvinís teacher is away for the week and Marvin has a big job, to babysit her dog, Waldo. And itís long. Mrs. Northís dog Waldo sounds old, and Marvin thought it would be OK, but laterÖNot OK! Marvin canít work alone! Marvin needs help and his best friends Nick and Stuart come to help but then Waldo is dead.

Marvin Redpost Alone in His Teacherís House is a great book. Marvin is normal but everyone thinks he is weird. I liked the book because Marvin had a hard time just like Louis the author. Then friends came just like Louis the author. Once me and my sister and my dad went on vacation for two weeks and I worried about everyone else just like Mrs. North when she worried about Marvin because he always gets the job but when he is on the job it gets bad.

Every book of Marvin Redpost Marvin is trying to be normal but weird stuff happens and later something bad would happen. But I recommend this book to people that are normal and try to be half normal and it's hard to be normal.
