    1. I made sure this was fiction before checking it out from my library when I was a kid Even then I was wary of self help books making specious claims This is about a kid named Milo who is intrigued by the title of a book called Be A Perfect Person in Just Three Days He s got a lot of problems at home and would love to become perfect, but this book keeps ordering him to do weird things like put a hunk of broccoli around his neck , and he s a little suspicious of the photos of the author which do NO [...]

    2. What this book is about When Milo gets hit in the head at the library by a falling book, he takes notice This particular book is written by Dr Silverfish, and it s impressive title, Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days, is just too good to pass up Milo follows the instructions, word for word Does it work Do you think you could do it Why I love this book Fun and funny book Day one is probably the funniest and my third and eighth grader were both laughing out loud Let s just say that every time [...]

    3. I loved this book so much that I had my Mother chase down an out of print copy for me years agod it was a movie tie in cover I had no idea this book had been made into a movie I wish I d seen it What smart young person doesn t strive to be perfect If such perfection were possible in such a short time, would you attempt it Even if it meant wearing a giant piece of broccoli around your neck Sometimes you find books and sometimes, when you really need them, the books find YOU.

    4. Doesn t the title itself already make you want to read this book It definitely made me curious right away Who knew the secret to perfection could be found in a children s book that could be read in less than a day for this year s Battle of the Books You ll laugh all the way through as you read about Milo s adventures in his quest for perfection.

    5. I remember being all excited to read this book in third grade, but it turned out to be of a cautionary tale than a manual.

    6. Read to 5th Graders as part of their Battle of the Books Milo literally gets hit on the head by a book promising he can become perfect in three days Made the kids laugh and press for just one chapter.

    7. Speaking as a reformed perfectionist I have to say this book is GREAT I might have even teared up a little bit Wish I would have read it as a kid, but knowing me I would have needed to read it a few times.

    8. This short read was pretty entertaining I m just imagining wearing a broccoli necklace to school Ha ha It does make some excellent points It s no wonder my 9 year old daughter brought it home from school to read.

    9. A much needed, fun read to give me some perspective A perfect read for adults who feel they are engrossed in their professional or personal bubbles I had forgotten about this favorite until a iend recommended it recently.

    11. Milo s a kind of troubled kid who accidentally encounters a book called BE A PERFECT PERSON IN JUST THREE DAYS Well, how can he resist that, right Even if the photos of the author look a bit imperfect Maybe his idea of perfect is just different Anyway, Milo follows the instructions in the book to the letter, not even reading ahead because the book insisted that he must do each task before reading ahead But some of the tasks make Milo look foolish, and he starts to wonder what this book is tryin [...]

    12. I picked this book out for my daughter 8 and her friends to read for a book club we hosted I read it with her, because at first the picture on the cover made her not want to read it She didn t think it would be fun Once we started, we laughed together and she really enjoyed it It is a really fun book, geared toward 8 12 year old We both liked it I gave it 3 stars instead of 4, just because there were a lot of times during the book when they said stupid, dumb, or idiot That is not too big of a de [...]

    13. Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days, written by Stephen Manes and illustrated by Tom Huffman seems as though it would be a level three on the Horning scale The text is large, but smaller than might be found in other transitional books, and also has complex sentences than any of the transitional readers I have read thus far The illustrations appear to be mostly for decoration, as they do appear every few pages and they do not appear to portray exactly what happens in the text, so they would n [...]

    15. Read aloud with my 5th grader over the weekend He read most of it to me, but I helped him with bits when he got too many giggles Very silly book, my class clown kiddo loved it The 6th grader and 3rd grader also read it seperately, to themselves and thought it was funny but not quite as deeply amused as their brother I think it struck his type of humor just right, he guffawed several times and even had a rush to go pee moment The third grader disapproved of seeing stupid and something else appear [...]

    16. I liked this book because it was a good reminder that not everyone is perfect Especially going through school as a college student, I still find it annoying not being flawless with everything I think this book would be a great transition book for 3rd graders Because students at this age may be going through a period where they are comparing themselves to their peers and trying to be like them However, being like someone else doesn t mean that a person becomes perfect There is no such thing as pe [...]
