Description

Seven-year-old Bruno is back and tackling problems with his trademark originality. He defeats hiccups. He trades his mother for a new hat. He skillfully avoids math. And thanks to his special Flutter Kick, he easily advances to the next level—in swimming and in life! Bruno is ready for any challenge as he learns all there is to know about being a boy.

Editorial Reviews

"With a teacher who turns any conversation into a math lesson, Bruno tackles daily life with a great sense of humor and originality. Cartoonish pen and ink drawing complement the silly tone and create an appealing transitional chapter book."

— Puget Sound Council for Reviewing Children's Media

"Bruno has so much personality he almost leaps off the page, and the energy of the book marches its main character. Bruno's hijinks are entertaining and true to life, with every chapter acting as a fast-paced, self-contained story...Highly recommended."

— Resource Links

"Young readers will enjoy Bruno's funny stories, short chapters and cartoon illustrations."

— Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
