Love everything Pigza!

My 11yr old granddaughter and I have listened to the Joey Pigza stories many times, and love all of them! The characters are well developed, and I can easily picture them in my mind. Especially Joey and his grandma! These books are not just for children! There is a strong lesson of taking responsibility for your own life, despite the pitfalls that get in your way.

Love this book!

Would you listen to Joey Pigza Loses Control again? Why?

I use this in my 4th grade reading group. My students love to mix things up and listen to the author read instead of me. It really keeps their attention. I love seeing them get 'sucked in' to the book!

Magnificent!

This is a must-listen for any child suffering from mood disorders and those who care for them. It makes the idea of taking medicine for ADHD and other mood disorders less frightening and acceptable. Gantos weaves together an unforgettable story that will stay with me for a very long time. Highly recommended.

Left me wanting more

Funny and yet it tugs on your heart and sympathies. There can be love and successes amongst dysfunction. The narration was great. I've ordered more in this series. I think children and many adults will love this.

Joey Pigza

I used to know a kid named Tanner. Really, I still do, but he went to Colorado for a ‘family emergency’ never figured what it was about. You see, Tanner was kind of like Joey, he didn’t have medicine, and now I think he should have. No I can’t say he was as bad as Joey, but he was not the best kid in our class. Sometimes he didn’t pay attention or he interrupted class sometimes. I would recommend this book to him and his family because, really I think he could learn something from Joey. Tanner also went to SpecialEd, but it was called R.I.S.E. Listening to this book, I am 10 years old, Tanner was like a dog, not in an offensive way, but you could just say, “No, Tanner,” or, “How do we act, Tanner?” And he would stop and listen. Sitting next to Tanner, I learned things about him. He, like Joey, was a bit, energetic. Sometimes he could not sit still. And when he went on this trip, and then I listened to this book, really reminded me of the same things. In conclusion, I believe this was a great book for people who need special mental help. Thank you for your time.
