I just read "Teddy Mars: Almost a World Record Breaker," by Molly B. Burnham (HarperCollins). It was probably the greatest book I ever read. "Teddy Mars" is about a 9-year-old with an extraordinary dream. He wants to break a world record. But with five sisters and a little brother, it might be a little hard, especially when his brother is the "destructor." But with his friends Lonnie and Viva by his side it just might be possible. Some of my favorite parts are when Teddy gets a job from Grumpy Pigeon Man and when Teddy tries to break a world record. The main characters include Teddy, Mom, Dad, Lonnie, Viva, Maggie, Sharon, Jake, Catlin, Casey, Grace, and Grumpy Pigeon Man. "Teddy Mars" is a chapter book, and a lot of the parts in the story make you laugh. What I liked most was that he is an ordinary kid with an extraordinary dream. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did.
