Bug Blonsky and His Very Long List of Don'ts by E. S. Redmond (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)

by McNally Robinson - Tuesday, Jan 02, 2018 at 8:17pm

Do you have a list of don’ts, and if you do what don’ts do you have on it? Well, Bug Blonsky has a very long list of don’ts, and if you are wondering why he is called Bug, the reason is because his mom thinks he squirms a lot, and his sister Winnie thinks it’s because he is annoying. Anyways back to his long list of don’ts. Here are some examples of the things he has on his list. 1) Don’t be Abner Vanderpelt’s reading buddy. 2) Don’t sit next to Louie during morning meeting. 3) Don’t trade snacks with Kirby Dinklage.

After you read this book you may want to try making your own list of don’ts! One thing I liked about this book was the don’t: Don’t eat leftover meatloaf for lunch because it's funny and gross. I recommend this book for young children. Also if you like humor this might be a good book for you.

Bug Blonsky and His Very Long List of Don'ts

- Children's hardcover

by E. S. Redmond - $21.99 - Add to Cart

Follow one rip-roarious day in the life of an antsy (if lovable) boy named Bug, guided by E. S. Redmond's humor and wit.If seven-year-old Benjamin (aka Bug) Blonsky were a superhero, he'd be "Bug Boy with the Power to Annoy." That's what his big sister says. Mom says he's wiggly and can't sit still. Dad says he's easily distracted. On this day, Bug's "choices" -- drawing pictures of pig roller coasters during math time, making armpit noises when his teacher bends over -- have landed him in a heap of trouble, so now he's writing a list of what not to do: his list of don'ts. Such as: don't be late for the bus (you'll have to sit with know-it-all Abner), don't trade a cookie for a flaxseed muffin (it won't taste like cotton candy), don't be nice to Peggy Pinkerton (she'll want to kiss you), and whatever happens, don't tell Mom! Bug's list is very long, but will it help him stay out of trouble? Don't count on it!
