Plot Summary:
From one of the funniest authors, ever, Job Scieszka brings this amazing collection of short stories just for guys, and guys, alone. In this star studded collection, in my opinion, 'tweens boys will not only enjoy the comedic stories from Dav Pilkey and Gordon Kormin, but well known authors such as Jerry Pikney, Paul O. Zelinsky, Richard Peck, and many, many more. There is an amazing variety of stories that avid readers and non-readers will enjoy simply because all of these authors bring something unique to the theme of the book, which is "being a guy."

According to Jon Scieszka, in regards to this collection, "it's is not required reading. It's reading to find what you like. And I know you are going to find something in here, because these are funny, action-packed, sad, goofy, gross, touching, stupid, true, and all very short" (forward). Not only is collection meant to be brief, but it hits all of the chords that guys dig, which not only make it enjoyable, but memorable as well. Along with these stories, are short biographies and bibliographies readers can refer to if they have questions about the authors and their works. Another great aspect of this word is that all of proceeds so straight to Scieszka's nonprofit literacy program, Guys Read.
