Molly McDougal Montgomery McGrath and Other Stories is a funny book that makes you giggle. Imagine never taking a bath, getting an embarrassing present, having a frog as a friend and being pressured to wear weird hats. There are four stories altogether.
The first story is about Molly who doesn’t want to take a bath. Her parents call in a bathing expert to try to get her clean.
The next story is about a boy who gets the most embarrassing gift from his aunt. He does everything he can to avoid having to wear this embarrassing gift.
The third story is about a little boy who tries to convince a frog to spit out his brother. Things get crazy. There are zombies mentioned in this story along with a cartoon drawing of them. I wasn’t scared by it, but I’m not sure how someone else will feel about it.
Lastly, a mayor named Percival lives in a town where everyone wears crazy hats. The town people try every trick to make him wear a hat. Will they be successful? Read Molly McDougal Montgomery McGrath and Other Stories to find out!
If you like to laugh at silly stories, this is the book for you. To read the whole entire book, it takes about 45 minutes. I think George Cooper is a good author because he writes his stories so that kids can understand them. This book would be good for anyone who likes to read short stories. I think readers who are about 8 or 9 would like this book. Other young readers and those young at heart would enjoy it as well.
