Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading How to Be Cool in the Third Grade (Puffin Chapters). But though Duffey is well tuned in to third-grade cool, she includes a stereotypical bully, held back a year and ready to tangle with anyone who looks at him the wrong way; worse, references to coolness and what kind of year Robbie is having are annoyingly repetitious. Nevertheless, modest aspirations mean modest rewards: readers Robbie's age will be glad to find their own concerns on nearly every page. Sold by: Penguin Group (USA) LLC.
