A Newbery Honor Book

Meet Holling Hoodhood, a seventh-grader at Camillo Junior High, who must spend Wednesday afternoons with his teacher, Mrs. Baker, while the rest of the class has religious instruction. Mrs. Baker doesn't like Holling --he's sure of it. Why else would she make him read the plays of William Shakespeare outside class? But everyone has bigger things to worry about, like Vietnam. His father wants Holling and his sister to be on their best behavior: the success of his business depends on it. But how can Holling stay out of trouble when he has so much to contend with? A bully demanding cream puffs; angry rats; and a baseball hero signing autographs the very same night Holling has to appear in a play in yellow tights! As fate sneaks up on him again and again, Holling finds Motivation --the Big M--in the most unexpected places and musters up the courage to embrace his destiny, in spite of himself.

All of the events in the book had almost a too perfect resolution. It was a bit hard to believe that a 7th grader would read and understand Shakespeare without some guidance. Were kids smarter in 1968? The parents were a horror show in their absence from their kids lives. Baca ulasan lengkap

LibraryThing Review

Ulasan Pengguna  - quirkylibrarian - LibraryThing

Highly readable, wryly humorous with just the right amount of family drama. Holling is an unlikely hero. His remote, selfish father, ineffective mother and snotty older sister add not only background to his school-based troubles, but makes the reader cheer for his triumphs even more.
