REVIEW for The McGillicuddy Book of Personal Records


















Another great book from Fitzhenry and Red Deer Press.

TITLE:                   The McGillicuddy Book of Personal Records

AUTHOR:              Colleen Sydor

GENRE:                 Children

RATING:               4 Stars

This book was absolutely not what I expected - it was way better.

Lee is 13 and is really trying to figure it all out!  So, he through an original means - of breaking records and collecting inspirational quotes - he tries to make (muddle) his way through life - trying to understand his role.


The writing is touching and the main character, Lee, is both flawed and exceptional - never quite realizing just how wonderful a person he truly is - but rather, always looking towards someone else to inspire him and give him a little key to the puzzle that is "why am i here?".

This is a great book for any young reader who feels a little bit loss and has looked towards someone else for guidance and inspiration.

Wonderfully endearing.

I don't think most wonderful people realize how great they are. This book sounds like a gem.
