    6. Following in the footsteps of Beverly Cleary s award winning classicDear Mr Henshaw, this epistolary novel by British author Sally Grindley falls short of the mark though it is an easy read that will appeal especially to boys, with a nice mix of humor and reality The writing advice imparted is great until you get to the ending when all the previous advice becomes suspect I found it very disturbing that the ending implies that the author Max has been writing uses their correspondence mostly writt [...]

    8. I enjoyed reading Dear Max and thought it was a great read and a story that kids can learn a lot from I think for kids, it would be a great learning experience for them to read this book, because they can learn how to write letters and become successful writers while using their imaginations I think a great class activity would be having the students write a letter to someone they admire and why that person is so special to them, and then possibly have them send it to the person It could work fo [...]

    9. Kind of like a Diary of a Wimpy Kidbut better In this story, Max is a 9 year old boy he turns 10 in the book who is a sort of pen pal with his favorite author, D.J Lucas I found it to be quite charming We learn so much about Max s life from his letters to D.J and D.J encourages Max to write his stories and letters The entire book is told through letters, which I find delightful There s even a part in there about letters being special than email Maybe kids who read this book will be inspired to [...]

    12. I am leading a Lunchtime Book Club for 3rd graders and this was the assigned book It s an epistolary should I teach that word to the third graders novel between Max, a 9 year old boy and his new favorite author, DJ Lucas The letters evolve into a two way friendship, where DJ reveals the trials and tribulations of being a writer, and Max deals with the loss of his father, a serious illness, and problems with bullies at school The story is engaging, the lessons aren t preachy, and the line illustr [...]

    13. Original nomination suggestion It is a good book Ms Laura This book reminded me of a happier version of Dear Mr Henshaw The reading audience is for a younger crowd The story is in letter format between a 9 year old Max and his favorite author, D.J Lucas Throughout the book you see how writing to each other changes and encourages both characters to be comfortable with themselves This was fun little read with goofy illustrations from Max Good for readers 2nd grade and up.

    14. Nine year old Max writes a fan letter to his favorite author and confides that he wants to be a writer when he grows up During their year long correspondence, we learn quite a lot about Max s life and the challenges he faces as the smallest boy in class and also about what it s like to be a writer and how to put together a story I probably would have loved reading it when I was nine years old.

    15. Cute approach to a book The voice of the little boy was very evident in this book I liked the hidden lesson about bullying, the support of imagination, and the references to the writing process for authors Provides a good tool to use in the classroom.

    16. I d recommend this book especially for reluctant readers The follow of the letters being sent Ack and forth give the book a pace you can t get in a book with chapters I read this with my 12yr old son who has dyslexia and he read it relatively indecently.
