Book #3 Dewey Fairchild Kirkus Reviews

DEWEY FAIRCHILD by Lorri Horn | Kirkus Reviews

A problem-solving sixth grader adds annoying siblings to his caseload in this third installment of a middle-grade series. For more than a year, sixth grader Dewey Fairchild has been in the business of providing solutions to difficult parent and teacher conundrums. He has an office hidden in the attic, which is kept well supplied with delicious home-baked cookies thanks to Dewey’s 94-year-old assistant, Clara Cottonwood.

“Both hilarious and wise—another winner in this adventure series.”

Dewey Fairchild Book #2 Review!

DEWEY FAIRCHILD, TEACHER PROBLEM SOLVER by Lorri Horn | Kirkus Reviews

Sixth grade dumps a flurry of teacher and school-policy issues on a veteran problem-solver’s plate. So it’s off to middle school and a whole new level of assignments for Dewey-including a teacher whose shark-based curriculum is terrorizing an entire class, the sudden appearance of single-sheet dispensers in all the toilet stalls, and the dismaying prospect of having the snack machines replaced by wholesome produce from a student garden.

“Grass-roots politics at its best, likely to leave readers flushed with laughter. (Fiction. 10-13)

It’s Monday – Sixth Grade Serious & Silly

Visit Jen at nleashingReaders and Teach Mentor Texts to see what they’ve been reading, along with others who post their favorites. I’m sharing two posts today, this one dedicated to what has become a series, newly adding book three. I reviewed the first Dewey Fairchild book a couple of years ago here.

“The problems are real and Dewey’s solutions were considerate and actually focused on helping the teacher, resulting in good solutions for everyone.”

“Descriptions of the characters show the author wants to be sure that readers know diverse kids and adults are in Dewey’s life.”

“. . . a feel-good vibe to all the stories”

“There is a lot to love in these books that will entertain, but also inform thinking for readers.”
