6th Grade Entry Marvin Redpost Alone In His Teachers House

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Keegan’s entry. Thanks, Keegan!

Marvin Repost Alone In His Teachers House
By: Louse Sachar

Publisher in the New York: Random House, 1994 83 Pages

Marvin Redpost gets a job taking care of his teacher’s dog while she’s away on vacation. He’s going to earn three dollars a day, plus a four- dollars bonus if nothing goes wrong. He gets to be alone in Mrs. North’s house “his teacher”. Pretty soon it starts to look like Marvin won’t be getting that bonus after all. In fact, Mrs. North may never talk to Marvin again! Will she or not?

Marvin redpost because, he’s nice, responsible, and loving. Also because he loves to take care of dogs and likes sports. He also a very smart and has red hair like me. Marvin is stupid at times and thinks he is the class clown, (witch he is).

I love this book because it has humor in it and is out going. My favorite part is when Marvin’s best friends Stuart Albright and Nick Tuffle are jealous of Marvin, taking care of their teacher’s dog, “Waldo”. Also because I enjoy the author’s excitement however he does write mystery stories and those are good too.

The person that I would be recommending for this book is someone that the reading level is at about 4th grade. Also someone how likes humor and non fiction books. I think people how like books that deal with school, training a dog, ect. P.S. IT’S A GREAT BOOK
