Punished - by David Lubar

This is a pretty punny book.  That's a dumb joke, right?  Actually, it's a pun, and that's what this book is full of.  It's the story of a boy who bumps into a grumpy old guy in the library, and the guy puts a spell on the kid so he can only talk in puns.  The kid has to go on some missions in order to find the cure for the curse.

It's a pretty interesting story, especially for people who like playing with words and language (like me).  You'll learn a little, and will probably enjoy the short, interesting story.  However, I greatly prefer this author's other books, such as Flip, Invasion of the Road Weenies, and True Talents.  In other words, while this is a good story, it's not the author's best work.  Read it anyway, and see what YOU think!

This is the best book in the world. I'm J. bland in 5th grade in Clay County. We had to read this book in class. The only thing I can say abut this book is that it is really is a very punny book!
