Publisher's Summary

A Junior Library Guild Selection.

The start of the school year is not going as the Fletcher brothers hoped. Each boy finds his plans for success veering off in unexpected and sometimes diastrous directions. And at home, their miserable new neighbor complains about everything. As the year continues, the boys learn the hard and often hilarious lesson that sometimes what you least expect is what you come to care about the most.

Critic Reviews

”Fans of Beverly Cleary’s Quimbys, Judy Blume’s Hatchers, and, more recently, Jeanne Birdsall’s Penderwicks will fervently hope that more Fletcher misadventures are yet to come.” (School Library Journal, starred)

”Their banter is realistic, and the disorder of their everyday lives, convincing. The Fletcher family rules!” (Kirkus Reviews, starred)

”Dana Alison Levy has gloriously reimagined the classic family story into a thoroughly modern mold, and it works perfectly.” (Bruce Coville, best-selling author of My Teacher Is an Alien and the Unicorn Chronicles)

Name calling

The name calling is unnecessarily frequent in this book, which is unfortunate because the premise is good. There are funny bits, but not worth exposing my kid to adult and child characters alike call each other stupid, dork, geek, knucklehead, etc. Its hard enough to keep name calling at bay without more exposure through a book.

Review by Isis Jung

Amazing! My favorite part was when Sam started to say assassin, but he said it to slow and it sounded like he was going to say ass. It is not exactly right but here is the line " Ass-" Sam started to say. " Samuel, there will be no swearing at this dinner table!" Dad/Papa said. "

The Family Fletcher

The Family Fletcher is a very family-friendly book based of a large family of 8 (including the cat and dog). you can enjoy this alone or with friends/family (probably better together).
