Review - Rotten School: Calling All Birdbrains

128 pages; Amazon
If you haven't already noticed there hasn't been a Thursday ReReads posts for the last few weeks. I've been busy with other things, so I skipped decided to skip those weeks. My plan was to have the review for Rotten School: Calling All Birdbrains written and posted on Thursday morning, but I was actually under the weather for the past few days and I just didn't feel like it. Plus, I was really ticked for reasons I won't go into details on here.

Now on with the review.

Rotten School is set at a boarding school called (Yep! You guessed it!) Rotten School. All the books are centered on a 4th-grader named Bernie Bridges, who has a bad of habit of trying to scam his fellow classmates out of money.

Book 15, titled Calling All Birdbrains, is the weirdest book in the series. It starts out with Bernie's pet parrot, Libby, ruining the all-night UNO tournament in the back room of the Student Center. Typically, Libby is always a good luck charm for Bernie, but not anymore.

After several accidents, all of which Libby was the cause of, Bernie believes his beloved parrot is bad luck. With the school's annual I. B. Rotten Outdoor Game Competition right around the corner, Bernie doesn't want any bad luck, so he does the only thing he can think of - he gives Libby to his nemesis, Sherman Oaks.

Unfortunately, the unthinkable happens - Sherman has a series of good luck, all thanks to Bernie. Now Bernie is desperate to get Libby back for the games begin.

Final Thoughts: I have enjoyed reading all the Rotten School books (well, rereading them), even the bad ones, but I have to say that Calling All Birdbrains is the strangest one as it just doesn't feel like a Rotten School story. Now I'm not saying that is bad thing as I actually like this book. Overall, Rotten School: Calling All Birdbrains is a cute, cleverly written book for kids.
