Review - Rotten School: The Rottenest Angel


128 pages; Amazon
Yes, here I am again waiting to the last minutes of the day to write this week's Thursday ReReads post. I did read "Rotten School: The Rottenest Angel" earlier in the week, but I haven't had time to work on the review until right now.

The Rottenest Angel marks the 10th installment of the Rotten School, which the premise of the series involves the antics of a fourth-grader named Bernie Bridges as he tires to scheme his fellow classmates at the boarding school.

Bernie has the shock of his life when he finds out that a new student is going to be living in his room at the Rotten House. The new kid's name is Angel, a clean and polite young man that everyone seems to like, well, all except for Bernie.

Besides from having to give up his closet space and bed, Bernie also has to give up his friends, whom are all clinging to everything Angel does. Even Bernie's pets, Gassy (a bulldog) and Lippy (a parrot) like Angel more than him.

To get his life back to normal, Bernie must come up with the ultimate scheme to get rid of Angel for good.

Final Thoughts: I'm having a blast rereading the Rotten School series. Yes, I know that the books are written for kids, but adults can enjoy too. Overall, Rotten School: The Rottenest Angel is a fun read, but it's lacking the humor that were in the previous books. I'm still giving the title a 4 out of 5 as the illustrations by Trip Parker make up for the missing gags.
