A man ought to read just as inclination leads him, for what he reads as a task will do him little good.

California Young Reader Medal

Charlie tries to trick his little sister into eating "good-for-you" food like peas and tomatoes. But who is doing the tricking?

This award-winning book is kind of funny, though I didn't like it very much. I did really like the pictures even though Charlie looks like a girl. I hear you should really read it a couple times to get the most enjoyment out of it. Some teachers at my school really like it. Try it out, you might enjoy it.
