    I love the Guys Read series because there is a huge variety of authors and writing styles in each book. This book included science poetry and a short historical graphic novel! There were also personal essays, memoir, and historical nonfiction. Each story was interesting and written in a way that is accessible to a range of ages (middle grade and up) and reading levels. I wasn’t a huge fan of nonfiction as a kid because I thought it was boring, research-type reading, but if I had read this one, I would have tried to find more nonfiction just like it! And I’m saying that as a girl (re: Guys Read).

    I'm not certain why this book specified that it was for guys. Not all the stories were by male authors. Not all the audiobook readers were male readers. The book as a whole does not support boys becoming better men. The topics discussed are not of male interest only (or even mostly). The "guys read" aspect of this is very confusing and unnecessarily sexist, which is sad, because the stories (for the most part) are well selected and interesting.

    I surprised myself by enjoying the majority of these stories. Even the ones I didn't like weren't all that bad, either.My favorites:"Will" by Adam Rex was super good. I didn't want that one to end, and would love to read a full-blown novel version."Artemis Begins" by Eoin Colfer was also really good, and not just because I'm an Artemis Fowl fan."Your Question for Author Here" by Kate DiCamillo and Jon Scieszka. LOVED this one. I'm a sucker for letter stories, but this one was really well done."A Fistful of Feathers" by David Yoo genuinely scared me. Very disturbing.Like I said, the rest of the stories weren't bad. I would recommend the anthology not just to boys, but girls too.

    Perfect for most 9-12 year-old boys, also pretty darn funny even for a mom. Dramatic, crude, stupid - and laugh-out-loud funny. I am thankful that one story was about a boy who wasn't as macho as the others.

    Contains daily essays on children's book recommendations for toddlers through teens alongside events and activities for every day of the year. Seems like a really fantastic resource to follow, especially as someone who constantly needs ideas for storytime. The site is easy to use either casually or to create booklists with the search feature that allows the user to pull up books by author, age, subject, or type of book.

    Building on the success of Guys Write for Guys Read (Viking, 2005), Scieszka continues his mission to take the ?reluctant? out of readers with this first volume of the ?Guys Read Library.? For this title, Scieszka invited some of today?s top writers of children?s fiction to contribute a humorous short story. Not surprisingly, the resulting compilation has something for everyone. Looking for a story heavy on the ick-factor? Suggest Jack Gantos?s ?The Bloody Souvenir,? in which the Pagoda brothers return to wreak more havoc. David Yoo?s ?A Fistful of Feathers? features a bloodthirsty turkey intent on destroying the narrator?s life. Eoin Colfer offers an autobiographical piece that shares how his younger brother was his real-life inspiration for Artemis Fowl. Kate DiCamillo and Scieszka team up to offer a hilarious correspondence between Joe and an author who knows how to hold her own with unmotivated students. While these shorter stories may not have the liveliness of the authors? full novels, each one is solid, and more importantly, it offers an introduction to that author?s style and voice. Don?t be surprised if students come seeking longer works by David Lubar, Christopher Paul Curtis, and other contributors after sampling them in this collection. Scieszka promises future volumes featuring other genres, among them nonfiction, sports, and action/adventure.?Kim Dare, Fairfax County Public Schools, VA

    I enjoyed this book of humorous short stories and will be able to find many ways to use this with my middle school students! Loved the Jon Scieszka and Kate diCamillo story with the letters to the author! So cool!

    This is a collection of stories by various children's authors, such as Adam Rex, Eoin Colfer, David Lubar, etc. While there were a couple of stories that were just so-so for me, most of them were freaking hilarious. I was laughing out loud through most of the book and ended up reading a couple of stories to my daughters because they just had to know what I was laughing about. I especially liked David Yoo's story of the boy being ousted from his family by a macho turkey and Sciezka and DiCamillo's collaborative story that parodies the book Dear Mr. Henshaw. The only think I didn't like about the book was that Jeff Kinney's story was left out of this advanced review copy . . . but you better believe I will be getting the final version.Though the recommended age range for the book is 8-12, I felt like some of the stories were more for older kids. I think this would be a perfect book for middle-schoolers -- boys and girls!
