    1. I thought that this book was a significant improvement over the original Skinnybones , and I liked that book, too This is an example of Barbara Park s writing after she has ascended to the inspiring summit of her writing skills, and it is something that I feel privileged to see This story is wise, touching, and as always for Barbara Park SO absolutely hilarious that I often found myself trying to catch my breath through the laughter I was glad to once again have the opportunity of reading about [...]

    2. This book is all about Alex Frankovitch who is really stupid and can t stop talking at all But in this book he goes on a commercial about the cat food and his friends thinks it is weird to go on a cat food commercial I think that it is weird because he doesn t really think before he gets in trouble but he thinks when he makes excuses I thinks he never gives up in this story because even though he gets in trouble he does it over and over again the same problem that he makes I think this is a good [...]

    11. It s a little dated, but the themes are eternal Alex, our hero, is a dweeb with a quick wit and a big mouth, and these qualities gain him both friends and enemies It would be a stretch to call him self aware, but by the end of the novel he s coming to recognize that his habit of pushing people s buttons may have unfortunate side effects.Almost Starring Skinnybones is a quick read, wonderful for reading aloud Park has a talent for sparkling dialogue and a gift for getting inside the lives of twel [...]

    13. I am seriously annoyed by anyone who thinks he s better than other people, and Alex, the protagonist in this story, seems to be one of those Park does a wonderful job of portraying him as a snob because he won a contest where the prize was being in a cat food commercial As a discussion starter for respect and equality, it would work, but Alex s naive arrogance drove me nuts This s a book that can be skipped.

    14. I loved the first book when I was in fourth grade The author is full of humor She has a great voice for a young boy narrator However, I think a lot of it is dated, sadly Her pop culture references would never land in today s generation And if the main character was in elementary school instead of middle school, he might be convincing, but unfortunately middle schoolers today are not this innocent Middle schoolers today are a lot darker and sexually charged.

    15. This book is about a boy named Alex who goes to New York to shoot a commercial in which he tries to gain fame, however things go the wrong way and embarrasses himself on TV It was an okay book to read and has some humor which i enjoyed i liked how at the end Alex lets go the fame he was trying to achieve in order to help his school.

    16. This is about a book who thinks he s about to become a star because he s in a cat food commercial He is beyond excited because it s national television Though these plans take a turn when his friends thinks his commercial is dumb He is devastated He can t believe it and wonders if he ll ever be a celebrity.

    17. If you liked Skinnybones you will love this book It picks up right where they left off in the first one Almost Starring Skinnybones is just as funny as the first Skinnybones book, if and, even better Just like the first, if you want a good laugh, this is the book for you Happy reading RF

    18. I read this short book in a couple of hours today, and would recommend it to my students especially my boy reluctant readers Funny, slightly irreverent toward adults, and realistically voiced, I think that students will identify with Skinnybones They might also laugh durring SSRI did

    19. Skinnybones is back but I find this book just as bad as the first one Alex is still rude, arrogant, and a bad model for young readers I can t understand why parents would let their children read a book about a boy that nobody would want in their house for ten minutes.

    20. The loved loved this book They started to get a little bored and I had to explain a lot of junior high and terminology I wasn t quite ready for yet They loved it and now off to the next kid book.

    21. It was a good book My favorite part is when he asked his dad to carry his suitcase because he thought he was a star His dad didn t do it You should read this book DK

    22. This book is sure to make anyone laugh as they discover the personality behind skinny bones I can t remember his name right now.

    23. A very humorous story about a mischievous boy It shows a believable picture of how a 11 12 year old boy might perceive his world might be good for boys who do not enjoy reading Author
