Masters of Disaster is a short, incredibly funny story of three friends who decide they need to stop being boring 12-year-olds and go on some epic adventures to impress girls and make their lives something to write about. The three friends have very distinct personalities, and their adventures are laugh out loud funny.
This book would make a great classroom read-aloud. It is short, funny, and realistic fiction which can appeal to be boys and girls. Plus it talks about poop a lot, which is a plus for elementary school boys, a hard to reach category of readers. This book will keep their attention!
