The book Flying Solo is filled with humor. If you enjoy humor, then this is the book for you. Mr. Fab calls in absent and there is no sub. This leaves the children with decisions to make. I would like to tell you how it ends, but you're going to have to read the book to find out.
My favorite part was when the class had a rock ritual because Bastian was moving. The talk was about the good times they had with Bastian. I liked the book because I like this kind of humor. I thought it was humorous that Bastian hid his soft side for his dog. I thought that Karen would stand up and tell that there was no sub, but she did the opposite. It was so nice that Bastian gave his dog to Sean.
I recommend this great book because of how Bastian treats everybody bad and treats his dog the opposite way he feels about the kids. This book can be for all ages.
