Super diaper baby vs Deputy doo doo

Laddies and gentlemen,
I have recently finished reading Super diaper baby and I recommend people to read this book who like captain under pants. This book tells about how supper diaper baby got his super powers. Turns out that before diaper dog was a super hero he was working as a villein. This book's ending is a hilarious joke.

Stinkbug short History

Dear readers

I have completed a short packet that is titled "Bugs Who Love Bugs" and it is about stinkbugs and some of there history. In the 1900s they were a big problem that wouldn't go away. They ate all the crops and survived the winter. Next the main I idea is that the stink bugs are a confusing problem. Finally the last main idea is that they had to bring a predator known as wasps.

First, the stink bugs are a problem because they are sucking up all the salt in the crops. the stink bugs re more dangerous than the lack of calcium. The stink bugs cause the crops to have brown spots.

Next the stink bugs can survive the winter and that is a problem. They survive by living in "dead or rotting trees" said Donald Weber. He studies bugs for the U.S.A.D ( U.S department of agriculture )

Finally They are bringing wasps to kill the stink bugs. I think that this idea would make a bigger problem with the wasps. Wasps larva develop on stink bugs

My Following story

This story begins with a boy explaining that he is a follower. I know that many of you have had discussions with teachers and adults about being a leader instead of a follower. Please tell us about a time when you chose to be a follower and why that might not have been a great choice (or maybe it was a good choice!?). In your post, use evidence from the text and make sure to share connections between your story and the story you read.


I liked following kids that were popular in school because I wanted to become popular. So I hanged out with these kids but it was just getting me into trouble I got sent to the office I got grounded by my parents. So I just stopped following and wanted to start being followed so that kids wont make the same mistake.

The Biker

For this story, I’d like to continue to have you thinking like a writer. What are some of the things the author has done well in this story? Make sure to support your thoughts with evidence from the text.

Some things that the author has done well is that he is showing action like when Carl the biker is reading the boys diary and Carl calls him a looser because of what he read in the diary. Carl tells the boy that since the diary is in the room it is his.

My Helping Lie

Tell us about a time when you felt that telling a lie would help you in some way. Then connect your thoughts to the text. Compare and contrast your situation with the story.

I have mostly always got caught with all my lies but the most succeeded one was when I got to get to go to a field trip. I told my parents to sign a permission slip to go to a field trip but In told them It was to make a experiment for the class. I wasn't telling my parents the truth because they said that In could not go to a field trip because I puled a prank my little sister but it went wrong . Then that was when I got caught but at least I still got to go.

Have you ever fooled your family? How did you do it? Why did you do it? Did it work, or did you get caught?

What Would My Parents Change About Me?

What do you think your parents would most like you to change about yourself? Use evidence from the text to compare and contrast your situation to the main character, Sam.

If my parents would change something I would be me playing a lot but not doing chores. My problem is like Sams problem because it is like my parents making me do chores for money. If I were Sams parents I would ask him why does he have so many friends that are girls?

So many Letters!

Dear Readers,
I have started Reading " your question for the author here" It is long Because Joe and the author Maureen are sending letters  to each other back and forth.
If you were able to get in touch with Kate DiCamillo and Jon Scieszka, what questions would you ask them? 

If I were able to meet these two authors I would ask them so many questions. First what was the first book they ever published? Second what or who inspired them to be writers? Finally what is your favorite book? I would ask if they ever had a book that was rejected and what was it about? I would also ask theme how do they get ideas to wright the there books? I would also ask if they have any ideas for a new book?  I would ask were they get there books publish?

My Favorite Lead

Which story so far has had the best lead, and what makes it the best?

In my opinion the best lead so far is "Kid Appeals" This one is the best because it starts off surprising "Dwight Howtzler Is an idiot" it makes you want to read more and it is hilarious. I like how the author I would start like this too.
I like this book so far because it is starting to get funny. Kid appeal is my favorite story so far because the boys are entering a contest to go to A water park. If this was me I would enter in this contest because it sounds like the water park is like Water World. I would go to Christopher's blog to hear what he says about about the book. You guys should read this book it is funny and I think you should read this book if you like humor.

My Favorite character

 Choose one character from any of the stories you’ve read in this book so far and explain why they are your favorite character. What makes a great character? How did the character change in the story?


My favorite character in this book so far Dean. He is my favorite character because he just became Ernest's friend because Ernest said he was going to swim in a pool made out of chocolate milk. Dean was in composition with other kids to go to the pool. Dean was trying hard to be able to go to the pool. It also ended up that Dean was punched in the gut by a bully. Dean was trying to help Ernest get away from the bully that punched him

The Sweepstakes are Fake!

Dear, Readers

We have finished the first mini story in guys read and dean found out that their were no sweepstakes and Dean ended up being punched in the gut helping Ernest from getting beat up.

What is the most outrageous thing you have ever done in order to get what you want from a friend? How is that similar to what you read in this story?

I got new friends playing in the school soccer team but had to learn hard things and some times. To me this is similar to the story because dean had to do something new to go to the sweepstakes. How many books are in his series.

Beggining Guys Read


Why do you think that Jon Scieszka chose to include this story first? If you were going to edit a collection of short, funny stories, what author or story might you choose?

I think that he chose to start with this story because it was his own story and it was funny to start with. If I were to edit a sort collection of stories I would start with Jon Scieszka story because it is funny and makes some people laugh. I wonder if Jon Scieszka has edited a comic book? I wonder if Jon Scieszca has met these other author in person? Will Dean be able to go to the factory with Ernest or will he fail trying.
