As a kid, I thought the soup part was gross. He ends up giving it to an old woman who needs the help. A good ending! Oct 26, S'hi rated it really liked it Shelves: In particular The Busker covers the strange equation of money and love as somehow measuring each other. Thoroughly entertaining for a wide range of ages, Unbelievable surely lives up to its name.
Oct 13, Krystal rated it really liked it Shelves: For the most part, I loved all of these short story collections from Paul Jennings.
I particularly remember one about a tree growing inside a fellow?! Damn this dude came up with some crazy stuff. They were just such a fabulous collection of bizarre and creepy and I must have read them all a dozen times. Classics of my childhood, these. Kids today unimpressed with this kind of work are jaded children indeed. Jun 24, Emma Butler rated it liked it.
This wasn't one of the most interesting books due to it being for someone who is much significantly younger than a 16 year old. I gave this 3 stars as one of the stories made me cry due to how loyal a dog can be to you and even die for you which broke me heart, despite it being a fictional dog. Dec 12, evini herzfeld-kinsella rated it it was amazing. Nov 15, Katherine rated it really liked it. Paul Jennings always writes the best short stories, so it wasn't much of a surprise that I enjoyed this book.
Feb 09, Anoushka Ghosh rated it really liked it. A very nice outlook on life that teaches you morals Sorta. But I'm telling you it's true. The crusher had pushed all the air out of my lungs. It was squeezing me tighter and tighter.
I knew I had only seconds to live. Believe it or not A kid can grow younger. Birds can bury you. Ghosts have exams. There are eyes in the milk. Aug 29, Benji Boy added it. I have read some of his books and have really enjoyed them. My favorite character in this novel was THE character from the pink bow tie.. But out of school he was just a small scared kid who was frightened by anything. Seeing the difference between school and real world made me laugh.
My favorite quote in the book was 'You must give me you solemn promise not to tell any other person. Not a soul. What i learned from the story is: View 2 comments. Dec 23, Gigi rated it it was amazing.
The book is amazing, some of the stories get me a bit scared but they are really good. They are not just like your average scary stories with killing and things jumping out at you, they have twists strange endings and gruesome hits that you find hard to get out of your head.
I have read a couple more of Paul Jennings books with my friends and we thought that the books were absolutely amazing. I haven't read all of Paul Jennings books but I would love to soon as they are all so different.
I would The book is amazing, some of the stories get me a bit scared but they are really good. I would recommend this to everyone who loves adventure, scary things and things a bit on the gruesome side.
Dec 27, Jade Maitre rated it it was amazing. Paul Jennings is a beautiful writer. Nowhere is this more evident than in his exquisite story The Busker. My son is addicted to every one of his tales, and having read the whole collection, we are now re-reading them each for the second time.
I am so grateful to share my love of these stories with my children, as I also loved them when I was small. But as an adult re-reading them, I am more and more moved by Jennings' skill in capturing a child's world that is timeless, innocent and worldly all Paul Jennings is a beautiful writer.
But as an adult re-reading them, I am more and more moved by Jennings' skill in capturing a child's world that is timeless, innocent and worldly all at once. Oct 14, Steven rated it really liked it. This is great book for any age or gender. If your not massive on reading, this is definatly for you. Just one bad thing though, the endings come too quickly. I was reading away and then all of the sudden the story's over. I think what Paul Jennings needed to do was to write just a few longer stories, rather than 9 short stories.
I would have given it five stars otherwise. May 02, ABC rated it it was amazing Shelves: I used to watch "Round the Twist" and loved it. Well, this is by the same person behind "Round the Twist. Extremely boy friendly, but of course girls will love them, too. The writing reminds me a lot of Louis Sachar or Dav Pilkey. I am not sure why Paul Jennings in not more famous in the United States.
May 30, Charlie - A Reading Machine rated it really liked it. Quirky tales for Paul Jennings. These books got me through a few of my awkward years I tell you. Even kids in these stories is the underdog or the want you want to cheer for.
There is often twists and turns in every story and he also has a way with coming up with a killer ending. For 7 to 13 year olds. Snookle was delivered with the milk one morning. May 28, Shannon rated it it was amazing. Major animal cruelty and sadness warning on the short story "The Busker" inside here.
It made me feel absolutely awful and the rest of the book was far too meh to bring it up from the one star that story warrants.
Nov 11, Jess Dietcookie rated it liked it. Easy to read great for any age not something that's a must read or captivating but a good light read. Nov 02, Just rated it really liked it. Another great read for young kids.
