    One thought on “Tales of a Sixth-Grade Muppet”

    1. I m a die hard Muppet fan I have been since I was a kid and that has never changed In fact when I was in college, I was interviewed by a national news magazine about the fact that I was 20 years old and had parties in my room to watch the new Muppet show So when I was asked if I wanted to review this book, the decision was a no brainer.Danvers Blickensderfer is a great character He knows he s not cool and he knows what his issues are, but like many tweens and middle schoolers, he doesn t always [...]

    2. About the Book Danvers Blickensderfer is the biggest Gonzo fan you ll ever meet His school reports are all about Gonzo, he has a Gonzo shirt for every day of the week, and he even aspires to be an amazing daredevil just like The Great Gonzo When Danvers s audition for the local talent show fails and he looses out to the middle school boy band, Emo Shun, Danvers thinks he s hit rock bottom That night, Danvers goes to bed wishing he could be like Gonzo The next morning Danvers discovers he s furry [...]

    3. Danvers Blickensderfer loved Gonzo The Great from the Muppets He was always trying to do dangerous and wacky stunts just like Gonzo In fact, he loves gonzo so much he wished he could be just like Gonzo Well, he got his wish When he woke up the next day, he ACTUALLY BECAME a Muppet His skin was orange and felty, he had a purple nose, his hair was too yellow and he was a bit too skinny This was NOT what Danvers wanted How was he going to survive going to school as a Muppet It was all made better b [...]

    4. It s about time for a sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational kids chapter book With fun drawings, a hilarious story, and all of my favorite Muppets or at least most of them how could I not enjoy this book When I was in the sixth grade, I would have loved to have woken up to discover I had been transformed into a Muppet come to think of it, that d be pretty cool even now I guess reading about it is the second best thing.One thing that I didn t appreciate was all the naked refere [...]

    5. A cute Muppet infused story in the style of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, except not quite as clever The Muppets in the book are Muppet Show than Muppet Movie there s not particularly a lot to them They re wacky, as expected, but part of the charm of the Muppets is that in the movies they began to have distinct personalities and back stories, and they seem very one dimensional in this novel There should be plenty of room in a novel for them to be a little well rounded I realize this is the first book [...]

    6. I so wanted to love this book, but some hilarious lines aside it just tries too hard It s something I would have written in the fifth grade, but, unlike Origami Yoda and Wimpy Kid, it doesn t come near the level of books designed to appear to be written by fifth graders but that actually achieve something fifth graders can t How do I explain this Instead of having a kid wake up as a muppet in a world in which muppets are acknowledged to be the fantasy creation of Jim Henson, Scroggs sets his rea [...]

    7. Not bad for the upper elementary early middle school crowd Fun for moms in a reminiscient way as I really enjoyed seeing my son reading this and talking Muppets my heroes with him Not groundbreaking or anything, but fun, particularly for reluctant or struggling readers who have outgrown picture books but still enjoy pictures with their stories.This book will most likely appeal to fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, and Zombie Chasers series.

    8. An entertaining middle grade book with a zillion Muppet references that will appeal to fans of Wimpy Kid type books Not sure if most young readers will appreciate all of the Muppet jokes, but, as a mega fan, I certainly did.

    9. My fourth grade son loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series by Jeff Kinney And truthfully, so do I The adventures of a middle schooler who s kid of a loser, told through simple text and cartoony illustrations is a good, fast read, and it gives enough insight into how much Greg Heffley s life really sucks to remind us all that being young isn t all it s cracked up to be That series has inspired a lot of imitators that I ve ignored, but finally there s one that spoke to me Kirk Scroggs Tales of a Si [...]

    10. We reviewed this book for our blog Please visit us at amonsteratemybookreportspTales of a Sixth Grade MuppetBy Kirk ScroggsBook Report by Emiline Tales of a Sixth Grade Muppet was one of my favorites because I love the Muppets Animal is my favorite Muppet because he is crazy good on the drums Speaking of Animal, he wasn t in Tales of a Sixth Grade Muppet that much It really bummed me out But the book really isn t about me so I guess I have no room to talk because Danvers, the main character from [...]

    11. Growing up a Muppets fans, I adored this book and it s one my son enjoyed just as much as I did Scroggs does a great job at staying true to the humor and misadventures that the Muppets are known for I thought it was really creative in the way the story is told, which is through a kid name Danvers who wakes up one morning to find himself now a Muppet Not only do readers get a behind the scenes glance of all that goes in the Muppet s world, but it was really cool to see how a huge fan of the Muppe [...]

    12. I found this in the new children s book section and just had to get it Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge Muppet fan So anything new of theirs I try to get my hands on even though I was kind of mad that the Jim Henson Company sold the Muppets to Disney, but I will admit that they have done really well with bringing them back The book reminded me of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Origami Yoda with the large amount of illustrations along with a chapter book story, that made it almost seem like a gra [...]

    13. Published 2011.This is a cute, quirky book in a style similar to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, but I would say for a slightly younger audience probably grades 3 5.The story s main character, Danvers Blickensderfer, idolizes The Great Gonzo yes, the Muppet Danvers spends his time trying to perform stunts reminiscent of those of Gonzo on the old Muppet Show Danvers is not the most popular kid in school nor the most academic or athletic He tends to have the same level of success with stunts as Go [...]

    14. Young Reader Reaction We would periodically hear giggling from our daughter s bedroom She loves Statler, Waldorf, and their corny jokes.Adult Reader Reaction The story is clever and fun for a while The humor and wordplay is very much like watching a Muppet movie, but it seemed to get stale about halfway through In our copy, there were pages with very faint images and text Hopefully that is just a printer error, because otherwise it is really annoying and hard to read.Pros Clever wordplay, plenty [...]

    15. This is obviously not Pulitzer prize worthy writing, but he author did manage to capture the tone of the Muppet show to a T I could hear the characters voices as I was reading, the jokes were in keeping with Muppet cheesiness, so in that respect, Scroggs did a great job In the downside, the storyline was kind of blah, and there was no ending presumably because the publisher intended to release books and was hoping for repeat business The book is a nice mix of text and comic style illustrations, [...]

    16. Danvers hates his life, especially since no one appreciates his attempts to create stunts that his idol, Gonzo, would love But one morning Danvers wakes up as a Muppet What is happening And how will his life change I found the book to be a very fast read, the large number of pictures certainly helped Yet, I also found it quite funny Any fan of the Muppets will enjoy it, down to the elementary school target audience.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    17. Danver s hero is Muppet Gonzo the Great He loves his fearless nature, uniqueness, and creative mind Danvers wants than anything to be like Gonzo, but never in his wildest imagination did he expect to turn into a Muppet What a hilarious read that will appeal to a variety of age ranges The graphics and humor paired with the text remind me of Tom Angleberger s Origami Yoda series This is a great recommendation for those fans who wonder what to read next It is a must for my school library

    18. I really like the Muppets, so when I saw this book I decided I d give it a read, figuring it would be quick and fun The story moves at a quick pace and Danvers is a likeable character There are appearances by every Muppet you can think of The storyline is fun and although I won t be reading any of the series, I could see how this series would keep younger kids entertained.

    19. I love the Muppets I was hoping for a book as clever as Origami Yoda but instead I got this really lame Muppet fan fiction It s like they gave Scroggs a list of what Muppets to fit in to the story and he just went with it I was very disappointed And they are clearly setting it up for a series, but I doubt the sequels will be worth reading either.

    20. Kirk Scroggs is awesome I have been an avid Muppet fan for my entire life I thought I was the only one who s favorite Muppet was Gonzo I m glad this book spreads the love for this adventurous, daring, and incredibly flabbergasting weirdo This book is Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Muppet style Highly recommended.

    21. The Tales of a Sixth Grade Muppet is my favorite book It is magical and it kept me at the edge of my seat Danvers is so funny and he treats his hero, the Great Gonzo like he is his best friend It was a super funny book and it would be a book that I would recommend to all kids from the ages 8 13 It isn t hard to read and it is also half a comic.

    22. My seven year old daughter has been begging me to read this for some time, so I finally got around to reading it, and was surprised to find that it was actually a fun read It only took me a day or two to finish it, and when I did, we had a blast talking about the funny stuff that happened throughout.

    23. I probably would have enjoyed this book if I d never seen the latest Muppet movie.Must think on whether or not to get this for school Just cause I didn t care for it too much would the kiddos like it

    24. A very fun book about a young boy who wakes up one morning as a Muppet Hijinks ensue, naturally, and I loved the jokes about how his felt arms and legs are all floppy and he can take off his nose

    25. Danvers Blickensderfer is a total Gonzo fan He wants to be Gonzo When he wakes up as a Muppet he knows he wants to train with Gonzo and gets the chance Told in a Wimpy Kid style with illustrations, the book was many of the familiar Muppet characters make cameo appearances Overall a fun read.

    26. This book is really funny it is about a kid who s hero is Gonzo and tries to do all the stunts he does Then one day he woke up as a MUPPET His sister helped him get a internship with the muppets Then he becomes really famous because %.

    27. Awesome Kirk is amazingly talented and his books are fun I hope he uses that RTF degree to make the book into a film Yay kirk Come back to Austin
