    1. An unfortunately lackluster collection of short stories about a somewhat annoying child traversing through scenes of his childhood It may have been the adult in me that really felt bothered by Stuey, but the common theme for me, at least, was the belief that there was almost certainly a better option available out there.Not much else to say A short book with very short stories and not a ton of positive things to say about it, unfortunately.


    2. Stuey Lewis is a 2nd grade student who shares his fears, secrets, likes and dislikes with the readers through four short stories With the help of Stuey s best friend, Will, and his second grade teacher, Ginger, Stuey is able to conquer the challenges of second grade and has some funny tales to tell along the way.Stuey s story is definitely geared toward second graders, although it could be used for third or fourth grade students as well though I don t think they will enjoy reading about a charac [...]


    3. This was a winner for our Radical Readers The kids s all gave the book 5 stars Their favorite short story from the book was Secret Friend and Footsteps We had a great discussion about fears, talents, Halloween, sports, and school.



    4. This series of stories are about Stuey s time in second grade Stuey is not a confident kid, often choosing to just not even try before has a chance to fail When he starts second grade, Stuey pretends to be sick because he can t read as well as he thinks he should be able to But Stuey is also creative When his mother tells him he can only trick or treat on their block, he comes up with a cunning plan to get plenty of candy But things do go wrong, like when he doesn t get put on the same soccer te [...]


    5. Have you ever tried to hide something you re not good at Do you have a secret you don t even want your best friend to know That s life for Stuey Lewis at the start of second grade He s afraid of being found out and that fear messes with everything.What s Stuey s secret He can t read When his best friend invites him fishing, Stuey is excited to go until he learns a trip to the bookstore is included Not wanting to look dumb in front of his super reader friend, Stuey tries to back out of the trip W [...]


    6. Stuey Lewis is starting 2nd grade this year He s really nervous because he still can t read that well and his best friend Will, is a reading machine When he gets to school and finds out that this year they are going to have 6th grade reading buddies he feels quite sick But he eventually learns that not everyone is a great reader to begin with and everyone has to work at it.September turns into October and it s time for Stuey s favorite time of the year Halloween Stuey loves candy than anything [...]


    7. Stuey Lewis is a good kid, a fun little second grader and I wanted to like this book but I didn t It wasn t anything that I haven t read before There are the usual characters, primarily big brother, who calls him Stu pid, best friend and a handful of classmates, particularly Lilly, who is the classsmartypants and who Stuey just doesn tlike at all Same old same old And frankly I am growing tired of books for young readers boys especially that have smart but obnoxious and annoying little girls in [...]


    8. In four chapters, a terrific exploration of the fears and dynamics of school, sibling rivalry and especially learning to read Stuey is very nervous about starting 2nd grade, because he can t read well yet and he s sure he s the only one His teacher picks up on his worries and works it out with him Later, he and his oldest buddy an avid reader, BTW cook up a Halloween plot to get candy He considers starting soccer, but his older brother is a soccer star how will he measure up And who is his Secr [...]


    9. If you are looking to recommend a book for a struggling reader who also is a boy, DO NOT recommend this one I was so hoping to fill that struggling gap Stuey, the main character, has everything going against him Spoiler alert He adjusts to life by the end of the book I just do not see boys continuing this read He struggles with reading, his brother is a sports star, he gets paired up with a girl in his class, his father is absent Not a choice that exudes success I can see why so many libraries p [...]


    10. My second grade students LOVED this book It speaks so vividly to the things of second grade and they felt such a connection with Stuey We have spent a large portion of time discuss the personal narrative side of Stuey and the four secrets that unfolded in each chapter that we read Stuey s fears, his triumphs, his insecurities, his likes and dislikes make sense to my 2nd graders We have had a lot of fun together through this book and am sad that it is over We will be saying goodbye to a friendbut [...]


    11. Queen of Obnoxious AhahahaDuh, me want teacher like Ms Curtis hug Ginger At first, i want to punch Anthony for being such a jerk by calling his little brother, Stuey, with Stu pid.Then at the end of story 3, i just want to stroke his hair and said, You re a good one A good one, Bro Great kickoff to the season, Coach Bean says as he puts his arms around my shoulder He looks at Mom You should be very proud of Stuey Oh, i am, says Mom.Then he leans down and gives me a wink Guess you re following in [...]


    12. Again, thank you is was a recommendation on one of my shelves and I adore this story 4 short stories about Stuey, a second grader who hasn t had that ah ha moment with reading and he is not willing to share that with his best friend Will, who is a great reader On top of that Stuey has a new teacher and he is nervous about meeting her This was a fun story about friendship, family and learning about yourself I am definitely adding this to the collection at school and I have book 2 on hold at the [...]


    13. I won this book on a First Reads Giveaway and feel terrible that I am just getting to it now It apparently got lost in the sea of books in my Third Grader s bedroon Anyway, we pulled this book out and I read it to my First and Third grader each morning before they went to school We finished in 3 days I felt it was a very simple read Definately for the K 3 type My kids enjoyed it and actually listened rather than fought with each other I hope to see Stuey adventures It would be nice to see him g [...]


    14. Stuey Lewis has all the typical fears and joys of a second grade kid Is he reading well enough Will his Halloween costume be scary enough Can he ever live up to the awesomeness of his big brother s soccer ability Does he really have to end second grade and leave his beloved teacher, Ginger, behind when he goes to third The One and Only Stuey Lewis Stories From the Second Grade is full of humor and delight A great introduction into early chapter books for those readers who are now able to read by [...]


    15. A serviceable book for late 1st grade 2nd grade looking for chapter books The first chapter regarding Stuey s first week in school will work great as a read aloud though teachers will cringe at the idea of a classroom teacher encouraging her students to call her by her first name Yikes and since it concentrates on picking Just Right Books using the 5 finger rule this will work fantastic in the beginning of school as teachers and reading specialists teach this rule again May take off as Keena For [...]


    16. I was luck enough to get an advanced reader s copy of this delightful, hilarious andtouching story about an unforgettable little boy named Stuey Lewis This littlesecond grade guy goes through challenge after challenge and lives to tell the tale.A perfect read aloud book for younger children as well as a great reader for kids insecond and third grade Keep your eye out for books in this fun series I LOVE Stuey And check out his nemesis, the infamous Lily Stanley I think she deserves a book all he [...]


    17. 3.5 StarsStuey finds friendship in unexpected places Good story about a second grader making this a hard sell for third, fourth, and fifth graders maybe who is worried about his inability to read as well as his classmates Only regret is the name calling between Stuie and his older brother, Anthony, and the fact that the teacher asks her second graders to call her Ginger Hmmm.Recommended for second grade as a read aloud, not sure how interested older kids will be in a book about second graders.


    18. The book opens with Stuey, who is in second grade, not wanting to go to school because he can t read The book takes us through his second grade year with stories that happen along the way Realistic dialogue makes us feel the character s angst as he struggles through the year and realizes that things will turn out alright Readers can identify with the problems he has and how he gets through them with help from his teacher, family and friends I really want to see what happens in 3rd grade.


    19. What a cute book The One and Only Stuey Lewis is told in four chapters about 2nd grade for Stuey It starts out with the beginning of school and Stuey has a secret, he is afraid that everyone else reads better than he does But with the help of his teacher he finds out that he can read just fine The last chapter is about the last 3 days of school and how Stuey has decided that he is going to skip it because he does not want the school year to end I will definitely keep this book to read to my Gran [...]


    20. I really liked Stuey Lewis He was a realistic character not yet a reader but still very creative and smart His Halloween caper idea was brilliant I wish I d thought of it as a child As for Joliet Reads I think the kids would really enjoy it Would the district s teachers mind that his brother calls him Stu pid when their mom is not around The brother also called him Jerk one time, but gets in trouble for it For the committee s purposes, I think this would be a good choice for third graders in Oct [...]


    21. Four short stories in one book, Stuey Lewis is just trying to survive the start of second grade He must learn how to read, get the most candy at Halloween, live up to his older brother s reputation in soccer, and deal with an annoying classmate The chapters are rather long for beginning readers, but each chapter is essential a stand alone story This would be a better recommendation for readers already comfortable with chapter books and ready to transition to longer text.


    22. This was a cute book, nothing ground breaking, but my kids really enjoyed hearing about Stuey s adventures I think this would have been a great book to introduce a first or second grader to reading chapter books independently The pages use large print and are relatively easy to read, so I think there s some potential my 6 year old could have handled it alone I personally didn t find the stories as intriguing or entertaining as some of he other books we ve read together.


    23. A Beverly Cleary Children s Choice Award nominee this year, this is about second grader Stuey who s funny, smart and imaginative, but he dreads the start of 2nd grade because he s a struggling reader He s got just about the best teacher in the world, though and a first year teacher, to boot and she gets him up to speed and also helps her students build relationships and overcome prejudices Stuey s as likeable a character as Alvin Ho Really cute


    24. This is a good book I liked it a lot It was funny.This is a good book because each chapter is a different story about Stuey I like it a lot because it is funny Stuey has what he thinks are great ideas but they get him into trouble in funny ways He and his brother and great arguments that are funny too.


    25. After an afternoon of mediocre picture books, it s nice to read a good old early novel with plenty of boy appeal And no offense to Lenore Look, because I really like her Ruby Lu books, but I like Stuey a lot than Alvin Ho whom I find irritating beyond belief.


    26. I liked this story and the characters I felt that it was age appropriate and taught many valuable lessons that young children need to learn such as, being yourself , and learning in your own time plus many I will definately recommend this book to many young people who cross my path in life and work Plus it was cute and fun to read i really enjoyed it.


    27. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories about the lovable Stuey Lewis Although this one is nominated for the 2014 Monarch Award, I can t wait to read, Stuey Lewis Against All Odds about his 3rd grade year I d love to use it as a read aloud and hope to pique the interest of my students in reading other books by the same author.


    28. My 6 year old son and I enjoyed this book He could really relate to the stories I did do some improv to avoid the name calling than enough stupid but other than that, this was a great chapter book for my sonrenstain bears


    29. A sweet and engaging story about a second grader who struggles with reading, his big brother, and other typical second grade concerns plus some positive things, like a caring teacher and a supportive best friend Good for reluctant readers and those just starting chapter books.
