Fourth-Grade Fuss by Johanna Hurwitz

I was just browsing the library shelves when I picked up this book. The cover illustration looked cool and I decided to check it out.

This story is about a 10 year old boy named Julio Sanchez and his hilarious, jellybean-loving friend, Lucas Cott. When Julio gets put in the rumored smart kids class, he begins to worry about the tests he will have to take at the end of the year. Lucas is calm and tries to help Julio not worry about it. Julio doesn't think he will be prepared for the test. It doesn't help his nerves when all the other classes start prepping for the test. Will Julio fail the test?  Will he have to repeat fourth grade? And will Lucas eat enough jellybeans to survive?

This book was quite funny. I liked how there were a couple of stories that all were part of the picture. The characters in this book could accomplish a lot for being in fourth grade. I enjoyed the problems Julio had to face and overcome. I think the author did a really good job writing a book that appeals to both boys and girls.
