Welcome to my stop for STU STORIES. I am excited to be part of this tour.

Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”
MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:
This was such a fun story....or stories :). Although the whole time I read this book all I could think of was my son...hehe. I can see him doing some of the things Stu and Bird Bones do in this book.
Stu wanted to become legendary so he tries new ways all the time to make himself that way.
With titles to the chapters like "Stu Goes Undercover", and "Stu's Head Falls Off", you can imagine the shenanigans these two boys get into. I think poor Bird Bones was talked into participating a lot. Doesn't that seem to always be the way? One a leader, one a follower.
Some of their "tricks" were quite funny. For example Stu disappears in the middle of class one day. His teacher freaks out calls the Principal to report a missing student. While the teacher was freaking out Stu slips right out of his hiding place and right back to his seat. The way it happens is just funny. It's what I picture any 13-14 yr old doing :).
Then there is the saying "it's all fun and games until someone looses an eye". I will leave the book for you to find out what I mean. Happy Reading!
