Clever Early Chapter Book


I love it when I find a clever early chapter book.  So often these books can be a little dull, feel too immature for their audience or dabble in more potty humor than I need.  The book I am profiling today is a great look at two brothers who are trying to cultivate their bad boy images, but every nasty deed…
