Have I got a great book for you!!! It's Knucklehead by Jon Scieszka (pronounced "fresca") He's one of the funniest writers out there, especially for guys. How'd he get to be so funny? By growing up as the second-oldest of six brothers, hiding in "foxholes" and throwing dirt-clod "grenades", and trying to name African babies after famous baseball players. And that's just part of it!! This book is really funny and quick to read--each "chapter" is only 2-3 pages long. And it's full of great old photos of him, his family, his models, and a broken collar bone that make it funnier and more real. A great book for guys, especially if you have brothers. (I don't) AND I can tell you all how real this book is (even if the stories like babysitting through tying the youngest brother to the bed with the father's ties might be hard to believe) because I grew up in the same time, read the same comics, and the story in Chapter17----the same thing happened to me!!!Carl
PS--check out these two Jon Scieszka books:
The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales and
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs
Yeah, they're picture books, but they're funny--especially for guys!!
