Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

"Lots of laugh-out-loud humor, perfectly satirizing state tests, overzealous parents, and kids who are in danger of being enriched to death." — SCHOOL AND LIBRARY JOURNAL

For overprogrammed middle-grader Adam Canfield, waking up to a snow day is a dream come true — a chance to sleep late, put off planning the next issue of THE SLASH, and make some quick cash with his shovel. But the dream turns into a nightmare when some high-school kids mug Adam for his shoveling money. Then not only does the media blast the embarrassing story, but Adam’s own co-editors plan a contest outing bullies at their school. In a second look behind the scenes at a middleschool newspaper, Michael Winerip deftly blends kid-friendly humor with some provocative issues, including the subtle effects of class and racism and the thrill that comes from speaking truth to power. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Great follow up to Adam Canfield of the Slash. If your kids enjoyed Andrew Clements books but are looking for something a little longer, try these. Cleverly addresses a lot of important issues.

My 13yr old son (who reads on a much higher level than this) thoroughly enjoyed this book as well as the first one (the Slash). He has re-read them both several times.

These books are great and my son thoroughly enjoys them! I think it's great for ages 8 and up. I would highly recommend these books for kids and especially boys who have a hard time finding books that they like to read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Public school expose in the guise of a novel 1 juin 2008
Par Reader - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The author, an investigative reporter for the New York Times who has school-age children, has written a hard-hitting look at the state of public education in the guise of a novel. Any middle school parent (or student who has been paying attention) will recognize the pabulum-spouting administrators, the lazy teachers who can't be bothered to read student work even on the rare occasions when written work is required, the "educators" who find make-work projects for students so that they can surf the internet or make cell phone calls, the constant waste of kids' valuable class time. Beyond this, Winerip indicts the parents who do the kids' work for them, and highlights the class distinctions that lead to kids with two-parent households who are highly involved being pushed ahead and everyone else left behind. The book is also revealing on the subject of how to do investigative journalism, what sort of personality is best suited for this line of work, and the sometimes adverse effects of this work on the reporter's personal life. On the subject of race, the author's approach is admirable: while one of the main characters is black, this isn't what defines her and we aren't made aware of this fact until half-way through the book and only because it becomes relevant to the plot. It is also clear that the fact that her parents are well-to-do is more significant in her life than skin color. The hero, Adam, is "oblivious" to race, and this seems to be the approach the author wishes everyone would take. On top of everything else, the book is entertaining and hard to put down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Words that are wise, moving and fun 28 janvier 2008
Par powerfulpaula - Publié sur

As a children's librarian, I find myself skimming through a lot of new books to see how the folks they were written for will take to them. This is one of the few this year which I have read from cover to cover simply for myself. Adam Canfield Watch Your Back is about a group of children who passionately run a school newspaper, risking all for a great story and learning much about the imperfections of their school, their community and themselves. They are fun, feisty and full of surprises. The Pulitzer Prize winner who wrote this book shares the thrills and woes of his trade. Anyone who reads of them will at least consider knocking on the school newspaper door and giving it a try. I myself was not at all in the mood to write this review but felt that any book which celebrates the power of words (as this one does) deserves to be written about. Mostly I loved how the characters--co-editors Jennifer and Adam--make a fantastic team of sleuths, friends and sparring partners with the slightest hint of a humorous middle school romance. Don't let this one pass you by. (Grades 5-8 & grownups too)
