October 2016 Grades 3-4 Book Club: The Worst Class Trip Ever by Dave Barry

For October’s Book Club, we read The Worst Class Trip Ever by Dave Barry. Cassidy, Reagan, Madison, Gwen, Ellie, Claire, Maida, Robert, Quinn, Cameron, Charles, and Thomas were present. Here are our thoughts.

If I could be a character from this book it would be:


If I could change one scene in the book, it would be:

-I would change when Cameron and Wyatt Facetimed
-I would change that they didn't just let Matt eat frozen pizza and watch TV
-I would change the scene where the guy in the dragon breaks his arm. I want him to fall and break both arms and legs.
-So that Wyatt was flying a real dragon.
-I would change the scene in the plane. They wouldn't be looking at aereal photos and just jump out the window.
-No backpack was taken out.
-The guy fell out of the dragon onto the roof of the White House.
-The guy falls on the taxi driver.

My favorite character is:


The character I wouldn’t want to sit next to on a plane would be:


-Cameron (the guy who toots a lot)
-the fake President (he has a snake in a box)
-Suzana because she raptors people

The one character I wouldn't mind sitting next to for a long ride on the bus would be: 

-Matt because he's funny

-either of the two weird guys because I'd want to make them angry and then get to eat frozen pizza every day
-Suzana because she's a fun girl
-Suzana because she's a girl and she's kind of like me (it's an adventure and I'm up for it)
-Suzana and Matt because he'd make a conversation interesting
-Wyatt or Suzana because they sound like good characters
-Wyatt because he takes down the president and people ask a lot of questions
-I wouldn't want to sit next to the farter. I would like my own seat.      

Were you confused by anything in this book?:

-Why did the fake Bresalov have a chunk taken out of his ear?

If you saved the President's life, would you ask him/her for a favor in return? Would you go big or small?:

-Big. I would ask for 15 tires in a mansion, cats, more animals, a porcupine, a Hillary Clinton pillow.
-I would not ask for something in return. You don't need to ask for something in return for saving someone's life.
-Go small, give me $50
-I would want to meet Simone Biles.
-$15 million
-I'd go small and ask for a horse. And a stable.
-I would go big and ask for a million dollars and buy a big sign that says "no big brothers"
-I'm going big, asking for a paintball arena (weapons and ammo) and a hockey rink
-I would want a mansion with a private skate park, a wave pool and air-soft guns
-I want money whenever I need it and a pill that would make me gluten-free (I wouldn't have celiac), a mansion, a wave pool, mansion on the moon
-I would buy a wave pool, a mansion on Mars, $1,000, an XBox, a paintball ring and gear, skate park, skating rink and giant LEGO mansion    

Please rate this book from 1-5, with 5 being the best:


We will be meeting on Wednesday, November 2 at 3:00 p.m. to discuss Pax by Sara Pennypacker. Please pick up a copy at the Circulation Desk and sign up for Book Club!
