The Boy in the Dress

I liked this book. It was very funny. I liked it because lots of things happened in the book that don't happen a lot in regular life, and it would be nice if it sometimes did. My favorite character was the headmaster. This book was very good.

Dennis and his dress

A cute, fun romp that doesn't take its subject matter too seriously. Dennis is adorable and I love the ending (no spoilers, but it's heartwarming!).

Good book

I like this book because it is set in England and Dennis likes to play soccer like me. It is a funny book.
