This has been a staple in my 5 th grade classroom. Mostly the boys tend to gravitate toward the novel. One my focus reading group selected it as their novel choice. Although the dialect was/is a little tough. Group meetings help to clarify any misinterpretations. My other groups kept asking "what's so funny" as there were many outburst of laughter. I love love this book. I included the audio with the group so they could hear the dialect from a different person. I have also done this as a whole class book and that went well. Some of my other colleagues borrowed my class set and their students enjoyed this book as well.
