The Misadventures of Michael McMichaels by Tony Penn

If you are looking for a good book for your elementary student then I would recommend getting them The Misadventures of Michael McMichaels by Tony Penn. This post is a sponsored post, but all opinions, stories, and my experience are all personal and true (like always)!

This is actually a 4 book series that is very fun to read, my kids have read these books several times already and love them. They love The Double-Dog Dare which happens to be the 4th book in the series and is about a rich new student named Zeke who moves into the neighborhood and threatens to take away Michael’s best friend Kenny. In this book Michael gets so jealous of Zeke that he starts getting Zeke to do some really crazy Double-Dog Dares that start out as harmless dares but soon turn into bad jokes that hurt others. After all this Micheal must find a way to make things right again if he can. It’s a good book about friends and enemies and how we can learn to try to get along with each other.

Misadventures

In the first book in this serious The Angry Alligator children learn about making mistakes and telling lies and how they can quickly turn into more trouble than intended. Michael pulls a prank that quickly turns into something more bad and leave Michael trying to figure out how to make things right or end up making things worse by telling more and more lies. This book is such a great learning experience to help kids understand how lying is really bad.

Books 2 and 3 in the Series are also great for young readers. In book 3 The Creepy Campers Michael keeps bending the rules to win camp challenges because he doesn’t want to lose. Eventually he has to decide if this was really the best thing to do, if winning at any cost is really worth it.

In book 2 the Borrowed Bracelet Michael decides he has to one up Harriet Simpson in show and tell and decides to borrow his Grandma’s Bracelet without permission. Michael soon has to figure out how to tell the truth.

These books are great for readers in 1-5 grade, not only are they great books to read but they also hold some very valuable lessons for children. This is a great series to enjoy with your beginner readers as well.
