I liked this book but very short only like 36 pg i also think this story was unfinished and could have written more and have a diffrent ending

It is about a boy who thinks he's a lost prince from Shampoon! I liked that it made me wonder if he's the prince or not. I recommend this book for 6 and younger because it has a small vocabulary. All in all I think it is an OK book.

It was very good and I couldn't put it down. I thought it was the best book ever. I get 10.00 for every book I read, and this was worth it.

Marvin Redpost is a silly third grade boy that is always involved in mischief. In this story, he thinks he was switched at birth and is really a long lost prince.

Reason for Reading: Son read aloud to me as his reader. This was his very first proper chapter book with one b/w drawing per chapter.At a reading level of 1.9, this was a very good choice for my son's first chapter book. He did very well with the reading and was not intimidated with the full pages of text or infrequent b/w drawings. I have never read a Marvin Redpost book before and thought it was a fun story of a boy who reads in the paper that a King is coming to town searching for his lost son who was kidnapped at birth. Marvin just happens to match all the physical descriptions and since he's the only redhead in his family he thinks he may just be the missing Prince of Shampoon, so he goes through the procedures to find out if he is indeed really a Prince. A funny story. Ds did very well reading it, though he still needs sufficient help that he could not read a book like this on his own. Ds says he did not like the book at all, but he may be just in one of his moods as he didn't complain while reading it and certainly seemed to be enjoying the story as he read. But anyway, he's said he does not want to read anymore Marvin Redpost books. I would, if I had someone else to read them too. LOL. Maybe one day I'll set out to read all Louis Sachar's books, I've hardly read anything by him.
