This books author is Paul Jennings and the genre would either be realistic fiction or fantasy. This book has either nine or ten different funny stories that will just want to keep you reading about them non-stop.
My favorite story in this book is about when this guy who is liar, then these people prove he is telling a lies all the time.
What I like about this book is that he puts different stories into one book making a short picture book story in to a just-right book for 4-6 grades.
Paul Jennings has written many other books of which I have enjoyed.
