Funny, cute, easy for young readers, but not quite as good as Junie B. Jones
Reviewed in the United States on April 23, 2014
Roscoe Riley is positioned to be the boy version of Junie B. Jones. This book tries for a similar tone and cadence as those books, and while it's not quite as funny, it is a perfectly acceptable entry point for young readers learning to go it alone in chapter books. I will pick up the subsequent books for my nephew, who cackled frequently while reading this one aloud.
