I am So Over Being a Loser by Jim Smith: Book Review

Book received at no charge to facilitate review.

When Barry's mom wins a supermarket contest and becomes the "Face of Feekos",  his life becomes an even bigger embarrassment. It's not enough that huge posters of his mom eating some digestive thing pop up all over, but those of her wiggling her butt ensures that everyone at school makes fun of him, topping off his humiliation.

In his effort to deal with his mom's new found fame, he winds up getting himself into trouble and misses a long anticipated ski trip. To make matters worse, his best friend, Bunky, ditches him for his nemesis. Thank goodness he has his napkin collection, a new friend named Nancy Verkenwerken, and his Snailypoos. Maybe he can prove his "keelness" once and for all.

The hilarious third book in the I Am Not a Loser series will have the young reader splitting their sides with laughter. Just when you think it can't get funnier, it does. The plethora of noses give the illustrations a comical life of their own. A definite must read for kids who love humor.

  Recommended to Highly Recommended ★★★★✬ (4 1/2)
