I am lucky enough to have a daughter who really loves to read. She gets so excited when she brings home a new book from school, and she loves to read in bed (when she is suppose to be sleeping). She was very happy when we received the Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School Book to review. It is her very first hard cover book and that was a pretty cool step up from the paperbacks that she has on her book shelf 😉
THE CONTAGIOUS COLORS OF MUMPLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL
By Fowler DeWitt
For ages 7 and up
About the book
“If there’s one important thing Wilmer Dooley’s dad always says, it’s this: “Where are my car keys?”
Okay, maybe not that. He also says: “Observe!”
Wilmer has always known that the greatest science comes from the keenest observations. So when he observes his classmates looking a little green…and orange…and chartreuse-fuchsia polka-dotted…he knows that it’s up to him to find the cause of this mysterious illness—and the cure.
But with his arch nemesis, Claudius Dill, hot on his heels; the eagle-eyed biology teacher, Mrs. Padgett, determined to thwart his plans; and a host of fluorescent classmates bouncing off the walls at increasingly dangerous speeds, can Wilmer prove he has what it takes to save the sixth grade from a colorful demise before it’s too late?”
Cure the Contagious Colors!
My daughter is currently in the middle of this book and I asked her to tell me a little bit about it. Here is what she said:
“It’s about a guy, he is a scientist. And when you eat things, they are like diseases. Like ham…it has rat hair in it and makes you really sick. And if you don’t get really sick, you change colors. So everyone eats something and they change colors and they get all hyper.”
Her description of the book makes me smile, but the fact that she can tell me something about the story, tells me that she is really enjoying the book. She has to read for 20 minutes everyday for homework, and The Contagious Colors of Mumpley Middle School has been her choice of book for a few days now. It is nice that she is venturing out of her usual reading material too. My daughter recommends this book, and I know my 6 year old will enjoy reading when she gets a little older!
