Highly recommended!

Review by Mila

I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to get a good laugh. Yehudi tries to do sports, but keeps getting injured. Chunky is his imaginary friend and fan. When Yehudi tries to fit in with new friends, he hurts Chunky's feelings. I learned that we should do the things we are good at that make us feel good, and not pretend to be someone we are not. That's how we keep our fans rooting for us.

Review by SerenaR

Hi my name is Serena and I think that Chunky is a great book for anyone that thinks that they are not good enough (everyone is good enough.) Chunky is a funny, amazing book that inspired me and many other people. The boy in the book really wants to make his dad proud of him, so he tries out for all these sports. He really wants to be a comedian, but his parents cant see that he loves being funny. Can he make his parent proud???

Review by DinosaursRock

I think this is a story about if you going to give up, you’re wrong because you need to based off of your surroundings to get in to the right game in sports.
