Reviews Soup for President (Soup, #3)

  • Sarah
    More injustices at Star Lake Elementary! Not only did my school not have an annual science fair, there also were no class officers. It seemed so interesting to have students lobbying for your votes. Eighteen is a looooong time to wait to vote.

    Robert Newton Peck's _Soup_ series kind of ran its course by the end. The last few felt like he just sort of whipped up a few silly ideas and whipped them up into a semi-tidy ending.

    Hilarious shenanigans and tender moments with Soup and Rob in this book. Soup is running against Rob's sweetheart, Norma Jean Bissell, for class president.

    I'm in the process of re-reading all the Soup books, and so far this has been my favorite. I like that the mischief involved is fairly innocent, and that the boys tend to decide to make things right in the end. I also enjoyed the continuing character development of Miss Kelly. She's definitely someone I would enjoy knowing in person.

    Soup and Rob are at it again! Rob is stuck between a rock and a hard place as he tries to decide who to vote for for class president- his best pal, Soup, or the beautiful, blonde Norma Jean Bissell. Rob learns quickly just how complicated politics can be!

    Teacher food for thought-"She(the teacher) had a way of looking at me as if I was the only kid in Vermont, like I was somebody, instead of just another farmer's kid who smelled of chores and sweat and cow dung. She could touch me with her eyes." Great quote, OK book.
