Dodger and Me

Most Recently Read Book:

Dodger and Me

Jordan Sonnenblick

I think the cover of this book is so silly! From the front and back covers I really thought this book was going to be for a much younger age group, but it's geared towards a 5th or 6th grader, I think. I totally didn't get the twist coming...until the end when I realized what was going on. This book is about a boy who discovers a chimp in a hidden, discarded, Happy Meal bag. The chimp can grant him wishes just like a genie. It cracked me up how sheltered the boy was and how the chimp changed his life. At first, I didn't really like Dodger (the chimp) because he was kind of annoying...and I don't do well with annoying people...but he grew on me. Overall, it was a fun book.
