Charlie Bumpers vs. The Really Nice Gnome
BIBLIO: 2014, Peachtree Publishers, Ages 9 to 12, $6.95.
FORMAT: Middle Grade
Charlie Bumpers is in Mrs. Burke’s fourth grade class. He liked her just fine but she had a lot of strict rules. Every year Mrs. Burke’s class presented a play. There were props costumes and the like. Parents would even come to see. This year’s play was The Sorcerer’s Castle. Charlie wanted to be the evil sorcerer Kragon but instead he was assigned the Really Nice Gnome part. And, on top of that, he had a lot of lines to learn. Charlie attempted to trade with some of his willing classmates but Mrs. Burke wouldn’t allow it.
Charlie spoke with his mother who encouraged him to take on this big role, but Charlie was determined to make a change. He and Tommy, a classmate, devised a plan to make the story humorous. The plan was to add some new lines and hopefully get the approval of Mrs. Burke. Will their plan work or will Charlie get stuck being the really boring nice gnome?
Author Bill Harley has created a hilarious story built just for boys. This quick easy read has heart and the characters are completely relatable and loveable. Black and white illustrations can be found throughout the pages and help keep the story intriguing. Parents, teachers and caregivers could present this as a read-aloud project.
