This is about grumpy kids. My favorite part is when the boy gets lost in his grandma's bosoms. Does he make it out?

I think this book is very funny. I like this book because I get grumpy sometimes too. I like the kids in this book. You should buy this book.

"The Life and Times of George Gershwin"

Jim Whiting

George Gershwin mastered the piano and quickly became a composer. He was born on Sept. 26, 1898. When he was young, he loved playing in the streets. His brother Ira liked school, but George hated it. When George got older, he began to enjoy playing the piano. Soon after he began playing, he became a composer. Something terrible happened at the age of 38. You have to read the book to find out. I recommend this book to ages 9 and up.
