Publisher's Description

Sometimes, being smart just isn’t enough

It’s been a rough semester for Howard Boward, science genius. Not only is he having to dodge winter’s most feared weapon (snowballs), his close friend, Winnie McKinney, is barely speaking to him. If that weren’t enough, he’s the favorite target of some bullies who seem determined to make life at Dolley Madison Middle School as miserable as possible. But then Howard learns about an upcoming robot-building contest—finally a chance to show off his science skills and beat archrival Gerald “G-Force” Forster! Unfortunately, the only way to win is by using his secret “monster goo,” a formula that has terrifying side effects. Can Howard resist the temptation? Or will he unleash a robot rampage that could destroy the town—and ruin the school dance?

    As I've mentioned a time or two . . . or three or more . . . as a child, I always received books for Christmas and my birthday. As a mom, I carried on this tradition and always gave my children a book or two on their birthdays and for Christmas. So, now as a grandma, one thing my grandsons can count on receiving on their birthdays and for Christmas are books!

    Zonderkidz had this to say about How to Survive Middle School and Monster Bots, "Sometimes, being smart just isnt enough. Its been a rough semester for Howard Boward, science genius. Not only is he having to dodge winters most feared weapon (snowballs), his close friend, Winnie McKinney, is barely speaking to him. If that werent enough, hes the favorite target of some bullies who seem determined to make life at Dolley Madison Middle School as miserable as possible. But then Howard learns about an upcoming robot-building contestfinally a chance to show off his science skills and beat archrival Gerald G-Force Forster! Unfortunately, the only way to win is by using his secret monster goo, a formula which has terrifying side effects. Can Howard resist the temptation? Or will he unleash a robot rampage which could destroy the townand ruin the school dance?"

    Likewise, I found How to Survive Middle School and Monster Bots to be great fun and a book which will keep the attention of young boys! Since I have three young grandsons, who all appear to be on the smart side of things (I do not say this just because I am their grandma, but I do say it because I am their grandma!), a book about a boy who is smart and who struggles to find a way to "fit in" and get along with others is one I especially want my grandsons to read. In this story, Howard is "branded" a "geek" at school . . . which makes him the target for bullies. Howard has to make a choice - get back, or show grace. In the end he says, "All of a sudden, I was glad we didn't go with my original plan: turning the robots into an incredible, bully-seeking attack squad. I've got to admit, it was tempting - the idea of using our brains against their muscles. What stopped me whas something Mr. Z had said - Believer Achievers try to treat others the way they want to be treated. So, as much as I wanted to treat the Snowblinders to some good, old-fashioned robot revenge, the real question was what I would want for myself - war or a snow cone?" I'm happy this story shows Howard making a wise choice - and doing so in a way children will be able to understand, believe and identify with! I want my grandsons to grow up knowing how to, "treat others the way they want to be treated." Books like this, will help them learn to do so! Once again, the Howard Boward Novels I've read thus far are excellent; I definitely hope to see many more in the series! Disclosure: I was given a copy of this Book by the publisher, ZonderKidz, for an honest review. I was not required to write a favorable review nor was I compensated for my review. The opinions in this review are my own.
