This book made me think more about friendship.

This book was not my favorite because I couldn't relate to Benjamin (the main character). He seems kind of immature because he keeps selling candy in school when he knows he could get suspended. However, if you like books where the character is under a lot of pressure to do something they can't do, you might like Death by Toilet Paper.

This book taught me more about Jewish holidays, rituals, and even food.

I think that it is a great book, even though it is not as silly as it sounds on the cover. You should definitely read this book! You should read this book if you like good books, and if you are one of those people who stays up late reading if it is a good, you will stay up all night reading it. It is not hard to read, but is not to good for younger kids. I agree that it is ages 10+

I think anyone could read this book. It made me laugh and it made me cry. Sometimes it was serious too. It talked a lot about family and made me very happy that I have such an awesome family and life. The book only talked a little bit about Judaism, but it was cool how even though they were poor and going through hard times, they still kept Jewish traditions and were as Jewish as ever. They also used a lot of Yiddish in the book. Overall, it was a great book and it made me feel thankful for different things during the reading experience.

I rated "death by toilet paper" 4 stars because it's not really about "death BY TOILET PAPER.

Kids would like to read this book. First of all, one way it's cool is it has a Yiddish Glossary in the back of the book. Also, in the beginning of each chapter it says one fact about toilet paper. One fact I learned is that Eskimos, instead of toilet paper, use dry moss.

This book was really good. It was funny, sweet and I really liked it. The title was a little strange, but you know what they say; don't judge a book by its cover. The main character was likable and I thought the plot made for an engaging story. It's about a boy whose dad died. His mother has to make due on a low salary and the first thing that goes is the toilet paper. When his grandfather comes to visit Ben decides maybe he can help his family. Benjamin has always entered contests and he thinks that he might be able to win the grand prize which is a large sum of money. If this sounds like a good book to you I suggest you try it.

This book taught me more about the importance of family.

I really connected with the main character, Ben. Ben has so many struggles, like his dad's death, the threats of eviction he constantly gets, bullies at school who steal his hard-earned money, and his fish, Barkley, dying because of the toilet paper Ben's zeyde ( grandpa ) was trying to soften by putting in the fish tank, thus dirtying the water and suffocating Barkley. I would recommend more books by this author such as Olivia Bean, Trivia Queen.

I loved this book!

This book was great! I could not put it down! Ben's family is facing being evicted from their apartment, and Ben's mom barely makes any money at work. Can Ben save his family from eviction? Read Death by Toilet Paper to find out!


P.S. The name makes sense when you read the book :-)

It's a good book!

I liked this book.

I read this book, and I thought that the title was really catchy, and it sounded like a good book. It was a good book, but the book is a lot more sad than it seems. Different things happen that makes the title seem stupid. The climax is about toilet paper sort of, but still. I also think that the facts about toilet paper are just stupid. I mean, their funny and stuff, but they don't relate to the book at all. Overall, I'd say that the book is a great book. I think that it would be 5 stars if they changed the title. The overall story is great, but the title is just... poop. It really doesn't go with the story at all. Besides the enter to win part, actually, now that I think about it, because the main character enters a lot of contests. Overall, read this book, but don't think that it is a lot about toilet paper. It is still a good read, though.

It was awesome!

This book was just OK

This book is weird. I am in the middle of it and I am reading it for the second time. I think all the toilet and toilet paper facts are dumb. Why did Donna Gephart put them in there? Benjamin's friend Toothpick is weird. Anyway this book is okay.

All good but the name

I love this book so much, but it's very sad that this boy named Benjamin is trying to get money by selling candy bars, but he got caught by the teacher. I think the money they owed was $2,050, and that's a lot of money. So get this book now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How would you feel if you lost all of your money? I don't think it would be very fun. Death by Toilet Paper is a story about a boy, his mom, and his Zeyde and how they have to pay their rent in time to keep their apartment house. Will they be able to pay the rent with the help of Mrs. Shneckle? The book was emotional and it made me realize that there are people in this world who are struggling. I give this book 4 stars because I like how the author made me think.

Review by Maddie

Donna Gephart

Author of Death by Toilet Paper and How to Survive Middle School
 

“I love what I do – writing, enjoying time with family and friends, writing, hanging out at the local library, writing, riding my bike … oh, and writing!”

When Donna was about eight or nine years old, she wrote her first story: “Happy-Go-Lucky.” It was about a horse, and Donna’s mom loved it! From that time on, Donna decided she wanted to become a writer.

Donna loves to write, but she also loves to read. When asked what things are the most important to her, Donna replied:

  • Family and friends
  • Good health
  • Being kind
  • Creativity
  • Being a vegetarian
  • Trying to understand myself and others
