Seems like I should spend the day in a pub for Pub Day, doesn't it? I had that idea, that I should round up some good fun friends and toast to Justin in some cozy pub all afternoon... but I actually have some, well, writing to do, first. Also 117 push-ups and 117 sit-ups, of course.
It’s the beginning of 3rd grade and Justin K. is feeling worried. Worried so much in fact, that a class bully has named him Justin Case. Worried about his new teacher, worried about burglars like Bad Boy, and worried about his 2nd best friend Noah’s extremely large head, which he might be sitting behind!
This is an excellent book about conquering your worries, with funniness along the way. It captures 3rd grade as if it were reality; with bullies, odd friendships, and food that jiggles. I guarantee that after reading this book, you will never hear the words “just in case” the same again.
