Welcome to the next stop in the Stu Stories Book Blog Tour
DESCRIPTION: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”
Our Thoughts: Middle school can be tough but it's those friends we make in middle school that often become lifelong friends. Stu Stories is a funny story of a kid's take on his best friend and their hilarious adventures. This unlikely duo, a short kid and his towering tall friend, were hilarious and the author uses words to create vivid images of this pair and their middle school escapades.
As much as we loved the book, it was a tad long. My sons love chapter books but as one so eloquently (Mom snark) pointed out "Mom, this book needs more illustrations". I kinda' agree with him. Even though it was divided into chapters and the author did a wonderful job sharing the tale of this dynamic duo, more illustrations would've been nice. We are hoping for a sequel. *hint hint*
Many thanks to Los Tres Amigos and their book club friends for their assistance in reviewing Stu Stories and many thanks to Author Patrick "Bird Bones" Hueller and Cedar Fort for the opportunity to share this fab read.
★★★★ a fab read for middle schoolers that would make a wonderful gift and a great addition to your kid's school library.
