One day in Buster’s class his teacher Mr. Ratburn was passing back quizzes. Mr. Ratburn gave it to Buster and Buster just had his eyes all big. Buster was about to cry. Then Buster was still looking at it for a long time. Buster’s eyes were watery. Then the mystery began.
I liked this book because it was funny and sad. I thought Buster was interesting because he was funnier than all of them. Buster does remind me of my sister when she told me she got a 1 on her test. As I read the book it made me feel sad. It made me wonder if he cried when he got his score.
I recommend this book because it’s really interesting and kind of sad. The reader might want to read this book because it’s really sad. The part that was interesting was when he wanted to cry.
