Impressions:

I read this book because it is extremely popular with my students. Owen’s first person perspective is fantastic. How he talks to the audience is amusing and will make you laugh out loud at times. This book also does a great job at teaching empathy and compassion for one another. You learn not to judge someone by their appearance or by the rumors you hear. You learn not judge someone’s weight because you don’t know the reason why they are bigger. There are just so many lessons to learn from this book, but it is a fantastic job of teaching these lessons to the reader without being in their face or judgmental. This was a super fantastic book which I will be reading aloud to my students this fall.

Professional Review:

Booklist (June 1, 2009 (Vol. 105, No. 19))
Grades 4-7. Twelve-year-old Owen and his sister attend a progressive New York City school where there are no desks, “Just workstations. Which are basically desks.” Despite the school motto, “Compassion, Not Competition,” overweight Owen is victimized by his sadistic gym teacher as well as by many fellow students. In his spare time, he attempts to construct a video playback time machine in order to discover who murdered his parents two years earlier. Slowly, Owen realizes whom he can trust and what matters to him now. Self-aware and ironic, Owen makes a sympathetic narrator. Readers will also enjoy the portrayals of his younger sister Caitlin, who insists that her name is Jeremy now that she’s joined GWAB (Girls Who Are Boys), and transfer student/outcast Mason Rigg, who, rumor has it, carries a switchblade tucked into his sock. Loose ends that appear in the narrative early on are tied up a little too neatly by the end, but the vividly drawn characters offer plenty to enjoy along the way.

Library Uses:

I would use this book and Wonder to kick off National Bullying Prevention Month. I would get a copy to each homeroom or Reading teacher and have them read it to the class. I would then create an interactive bulletin board on how students can prevent bullying that the students could add to on a daily basis.

Slob by , Book Resume:

Outrageously funny and smart, this story of an obese boy who takes on his bullies is as heartwarming as it is clever. Twelve-year-old Owen Birnbaum is the fattest kid in school. But he's also a genius who invents cool contraptions, like a TV that shows the past. Something happened two years ago that he needs to see. But genius or not, there is much Owen can't outthink. Like his gym coach, who's on a mission to humiliate him. Or the way his Oreos keep disappearing from his lunch. He's sure that if he can only get the TV to work, things will start to make sense. But it will take a revelation for Owen, not science, to see the answers are not in the past, but the present. That no matter how large he is on the outside, he doesn't have to feel small on the inside. With her trademark humor, Ellen Potter has created a larger-than-life character and story whose weight is immense when measured in heart.
