There he was sitting on table already cooked. Only the dad's son was eating everyone was watching. I didn't think the story belonged inside a funny book because I didn t find anthing funny. But overall I did like the story! Mar 01, Gladys rated it really liked it. I got this book after going to see Jon Scieszka talk, I was interested to see if it was as funny as he told us it would be.

Some of the stories were, some I guess you have to be a boy to understand them. This stories were trully funny and I have no problem telling people ab I got this book after going to see Jon Scieszka talk, I was interested to see if it was as funny as he told us it would be. This stories were trully funny and I have no problem telling people about them. Jack Gantos story might appeal to boys because of its grusome details, it had me cringing more than one time.

Christopher Paul Curtis story, although a well develop story, I found it a little disturbing because of the physical abuse that was done to Papa Red. The Turkey story was disturbing to me because I had a chicken that I raised since he was a little baby chick and it end it up on our dinner table, no one it just like with the Turkey. I'm pretty sure boys would like the stories, I know that I became fan of at least three writers whom I had not had time to meet through their writings, now for sure I will be checking out their books.

May 21, Kate Copeseeley rated it liked it. First of all, several of the stories in this book weren't even funny. Most of the time, the characters weren't likeable, and I found myself confused by the audience these books are trying to reach. The book says it's aimed at middle school boys, but I couldn't see much in here that they would find hilarious First of all, several of the stories in this book weren't even funny. The book says it's aimed at middle school boys, but I couldn't see much in here that they would find hilarious.

There were a few shining moments, as with Colfer's story of his childhood inspiration for Artemis Fowl he is one of my favorite authors for boys, so it was a hardly a surprise that the story was well-written, and funny. Scieszka's own story was laugh out loud, as well. However, one story, featuring a creepy turkey with death on the brain, is more something that belongs in the Twilight Zone than in the pages of a book meant to make boys laugh.

The introduction to the book says it all for me. Jon Scieszka sums it up perfectly. Some people can tell a joke and some can't. Several of the authors in this collection should have stayed out of the game. Mar 05, Payten L rated it really liked it.

The stories are about many kids and how sometimes their life is difficult and how sometimes they get in trouble. The stories are funny and they will always make you want to read more. I would recommend this book to someone who likes funny stories. The stories are all very good and I would definitely read this again. Oct 19, Liana Graciano rated it really liked it. The book "Guys Read Funny Business" edited by Jon Scieszka is a book for people who like to laugh and to be a bit weird out.

This book is has multiple funny short stories written by different authors. One story is called "The Bloody Souvenir" written by Jack Gantos, this story is an example that I would be able to say is a short story that would weird you out. Another short story "Artemis Begins" is written by Eoin Colfer. I hope that after reading my book review you will look into reading it. Oct 11, Lauren Adams rated it it was amazing. Contrary to the title, this book can be read by anyone boys, girls, ect. One of my favorite short stories in this book is called,"Unaccompinied Minors," this short story is by Jeff Kinney is about Jeff and his brother Patrick and how close these two become through the years.

I recommend thi "Guys Read: I recommend this book to anyone nine and older. Jul 15, ABC rated it it was ok Shelves: I am a mom, not a twelve year old boy, so maybe that is why this book did not appeal to me. I was expecting Captain Underpants type potty humor, instead it was pre-Stephen King type stuff. Just crude and in poor taste. It was not really that funny--just kind of gross. Which I guess boys like. Anyway, if you buy this for a boy Dec 31, Stacey Mulholland rated it really liked it.

I am enjoying the stories but I didn't think the first two were funny. So far my favorite is the mummy story by John Lubar, "Kid Appeal". I enjoyed many of these stories but my original thought of them continued; many of the stories weren't funny. The story is about the kids parents and others get possessed by an alien and the day is saved with broccoli. It was really weird. Sep 29, Murray rated it did not like it. Do you like mini-stories that are very interesting?

Do not read this then. When I read the series each one was not very interesting or funny. They were filled with bad and confusing action that was not very funny what-so-ever. If you enjoy wasting time this book is for you. Aug 12, Laura rated it really liked it. Some of the chapters short stories were hits, other misses for me.

Will by Adam Rex What does it take to be a Hero? Kate DiCamillor and Jon Scieszka: Letter writing to author assignment. Feb 08, Nicki rated it it was amazing Shelves: My fifth graders loved it! I like to recommend this collection to older boys looking for a new favorite author. Nov 29, Julian Lopez rated it it was amazing.

The genre of this book is comedic and childish, but also fiction. Since there were ten stories in the book I decided to pick my favorite one, which is called,"Best of Friends. For example, Ernest lies that he has tickets to the nesquik factory, which stunned the whole school. During school, Dean struggles to convince Ernest to take him to the nesquick factory because he's not the only person that wants to go. He tried many times, but he couldn't succeed. One day, he noticed that Ernest was getting bullied in the hallway, so he decided to protect Ernest, but at that point Ernest told Dean the truth.

The conflict of this story is person versus person because Dean and the whole school compete for the ticket to the nesquick factory. For example, during recess everyone wanted to play with Ernest, but Ernest chose to play with dean.

Also, a kid from school invited Ernest to eat, but not dean, which gave the a chance to get the ticket. The theme of this story is,"Watch what you say," because Ernest caused everyone to go crazy for a ticket that he said he had, but realistically he didn't. The first person point of view affects the story by showing the main characters feelings and experiences. For example, when Ernest decides to tell dean that he made it the tickets up, dean becomes very sad and stunned.

According to the story,"Ernest whispered in my ear,'There is no sweepstakes. I made that up. My hands, which had been balled up in fists in front of me, relaxed and dropped to my sides. My brain pivoted hard. For example, Ernest did not dress like a liar. According to the story,"Ernest looked more ninety than nine. He had thick lensed glasses that were attached snugly to his face by a cloth band that wrapped around his head.

Our school had uniforms, and he was the only kid to opt for the cardigan instead of the sweater. Twin deposits of dried spit lined either side of his mouth; he always looked like he had just eaten lots of vanilla frosting. I would recommend this book for people who enjoy comedy and fiction because there are many jokes and unreliable information. Sep 16, Brandon Soriano rated it really liked it. This book is based on multiple stories, the first start's off with a kid name Ernest, Ernest is different than others.

He is transgender but a very kind kid, this doesn't stop him from trying to new things out such as sports preferably hockey. He makes friends throughout his Hockey practice and continues to be the nice kid he is. His family has always loved him and he him being transgender hasn't changed their outlook on him. Ernest started to make jokes as a way to make more friends and forget This book is based on multiple stories, the first start's off with a kid name Ernest, Ernest is different than others.

Ernest started to make jokes as a way to make more friends and forget he had bipolar. The rest of the story is Ernest's journey and how he does in school, at home, his socializing and most importantly hockey. When Ernest was little he was bullied until he met a particular person in School his name was Will. Will helped Ernest and became his best friend, he stopped most of the bullies and then helped him out and talked to him. Even the best of us were shackled to some fatal finding out he was transgender. This book is great showing that even if a person gender is different than others and their sexuality is differen't they can all become friends and stick by each other.

This is a great book May 14, Adrian Rivera rated it it was ok. I think all around the book wasn't too bad, their were some boring stories but of course you could just skip to the next story. Although I did give it 2 stars because I thought the book was gonna be funny but it turned out to not be to good. I did say that their were a few boring ones but by that I mean that they are all boring but some are just more boring than others. Not once was I very interested in any of the stories.

None of them were very good and they were just straight forward till the I think all around the book wasn't too bad, their were some boring stories but of course you could just skip to the next story. None of them were very good and they were just straight forward till the end where there was a "funny" plot-twist. I would recommend this book to people who like story telling because that's what the book is, otherwise you probably won't like it.
