Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up ScieszkaKnucklehead: Tall Tales and Almost True Stories of Growing up Scieszka by Jon Scieszka

Jon Scieszka knows his audience – take a biography, make it just slightly over 100 pages (teachers assigning biographies, he knows what you’re up to), make about the experience of being a kid, complete with broken collarbones and made-up games, and make it hilarious. Maybe I thought it was so funny because it was just like the stories my dad tells, only with more brothers and less repetition, but I really do think you’ll find it funny, too. Wait, is that audience I mentioned ten year olds with reports due, or librarians? We’ll never know.
