George Brown, Class Clown is a book series written by Nancy Krulik. The first day at a new school is always the hardest, right? But that is not the case as George soon discovers. On day two at Surgarman Elementary School, he’s suddenly caught by unrestrained burps. The sound barrier could be shattered because these burps were so loud. These burps could force him to do some crazy stuff and find himself in trouble. If there’s one thing for sure, these are not your normal burps because they are magical and they have to be stopped. But the question is how to stop them.
At his previous school, George was known as a class clown but now he just wants to be an ordinary student but he is not so lucky. A shooting star appears and he wishes that he could be funny but not fall into trouble. Soon afterwards, super burps ping pong from his belly up to his mouth and everybody could hear it. These mysterious burps make George do silly and crazy things. Of course this lands him in trouble, and he has to find a way of controlling these burps before he destroys his school.
George was tasked with the honor of presenting a topic in front of his classmates. So he chose to do some magic tricks using eggs. He informed that class that he was able to make the eggs stand up on their own. He had practiced this at home and so he was prepared to dazzle the whole class. Amazingly, he performed the trick and everyone in class was impressed. Unfortunately that is when the super burps happened. Since Gorge was unable to restrain himself, he picked up the eggs and started to juggle them. These were not hard boiled eggs and unfortunately, George didn’t have any skill at juggling.
All the eggs fell on the floor or on George’s head and raw egg was splattered everywhere. George then jumped on top of the shattered eggs and started sliding like someone who was possessed. As his classmates screamed wildly and began cheering him, his teacher wasn’t that impressed. This is a book that any first through third graders will enjoy reading. George Brown’s character is very funny, and you want to support him but he is always getting into trouble. While his silly antics can be considered too silly for older pupils, some may actually like George’s antics.
For kids with problems controlling their impulses or adjusting to a new school, George is a character that they can relate to. This boy is always finding himself inside the headmaster’s office but George is trying to change his ways. Some of the themes that the book touches on are self-control and making friends. George has been trying many things to stop burping, including somersaults and mustard but nothing seems to work. There is a lot of humor in this book and it is a silly and light hearted story that any young child will enjoy reading.
The second book in the George Brown, Class Clown series is called ‘Trouble Magnet’, and it tells the story of an annual talent show at Surgarman Elementary School being a few weeks away. George has signed up to be one of the stagehands, and he’s determined to perform well at the job. He wants to prove to everyone that he can be a helpful and responsible person. But comic mayhem may just be around the corner and you can be sure that George will be in the midst of it all. And you can expect Nancy Krulik has devised some unexpected ways for disaster striking before the curtain closes.
George is never far from trouble and one instance is when he attempts to create a volcano. Unfortunately, he has used too much vinegar and baking soda and the whole experiment ends up blowing nasty liquid everywhere. George reminds you of the random things that some of your friends might have done, and he is always a favorite character. He’s always doing funny antics and try as he might, he just can’t be a normal student even for one hour in the day.
As usual, the author has done an impressive job on this story and it shows you how anything can be made into a story. It is also a good book for teaching imagination, as the supper burps will take over George’s body and he can’t control himself. The interactions between George and his classmates are very realistic, and you can actually imagine yourself attending his school. Kids can relate with his character, and it’s an awesome book that any child will enjoy reading. George is a character that you want to stay out of trouble but like the title says, he is a Trouble Magnet.
This book teaches us that it’s okay if you’re different, and the things that George does is something that you can find yourself doing. After reading this book, you will want to tell everyone about it because it is highly entertaining. The book has a nice ending, and you will have fun reading about all the things that George gets up to. Boys in particular will find the story fascinating, and it is definitely recommended reading for a second or third grader. Reluctant boy readers will enjoy the book and there are likeable characters all around.
George suffers from an unusual condition in which his body is literally taken over by super burps. When the burps seize him, he turns into an uncontrollable maniac and that is when he finds himself in trouble. Even adults can have a great time reading this book, and it takes you to your childhood days when you used to get into all sorts of trouble. For a child who is just learning to read, this is a great way to inculcate a reading culture. Even though George doesn’t end up solving his problem with super burps, he ends up learning how to defend himself and make some amends for his crazy antics. Once again, the author has delivered and there are other books in the series to look forward to.Book Series In Order » Characters » George Brown, Class Clown
