The Misadventures of Michael McMichaels, Vol. 4: The Double-Dog Dare! by author Tony Penn and illustrator Brian Martin was thumbs up read that wrapped some life lessons in a fun story.
Luciana loved the book and as parents we enjoyed seeing the Tips & Questions section at the end of the book to open a nice dialog about the book with her.
In volume 4 of the popular Misadventures of Michael McMichaels series, Michael finds himself in hot water again… but this time, it’s all in the name of salvaging his status as Kenny’s best friend.
I’d rather stick my face in the garbage for an hour than have to deal with the mess I got myself into this time. It’s a Double-Dog Dare contest… and, it’s bad, REALLY bad. But I have to do it because if I don’t, it means I’m not really my buddy Kenny’s best friend.
When wealthy new student Zeke moves into the neighborhood, he threatens to steal away Michael’s best friend Kenny. Green with envy, Michael challenges Zeke to crazy double-dog dares just to prove he’s still top dog and Kenny’s best bro. But when harmless dares escalate into bad jokes that hurt others, Michael has to figure out how to make things right again… or if he even can.
Another side-splittingly hilarious adventure by Tony Penn will have students in grades 1 through 5 rolling with laughter, while learning life lessons about respect, open-mindedness and the value of true friendship.
