Description

Blubber is a good name for her, the note from Wendy says about Linda. Jill crumples it up and leaves it on the corner of her desk. She doesn't want to think about Linda or her dumb report on the whale just now. Jill wants to think about Halloween.But Robby grabs the note, and before Linda stops talking it has gone halfway around the room.That's where it all starts. There's something about Linda that makes a lot of kids in her fifth-grade class want to see how far they can go -- but nobody, least of all Jill, expects the fun to end where it does.A New York Times Outstanding Book of the Year

      • content: edmodo-f7utzp5xxc - The book ''Blubber'' is a book that I think kids of every age and grade should read in one point in their life. It tells kids how it feels to tease somebody else and feel how exactly like to be the target. The book was ok, it was not one of my favorites but I still think it should be reccomended. In this book I will be telling you in this bok review, about some of the things I liked and did not like about this book. One thing that I liked is that the way how Linda one of the characters that got bullied handlded it. Linda would indeed cry when some of her classmates teased her but there were times when she was brave to keep on comming to school. If it was me I don't think that I would ever want to go back. In order to support this statement, it says in page 133 ''...my mother is going to drive me to school from now on'' Linda said after telling her mom about getting teased. A next thing that Iliked about this book was Jill the main character and her friend Tracy and how they are best friends. They both are best friends and I love it how they just know that they are meant to be best friends and to be honest with you it kind of reminds me of me and my best friends. But to prove Tracy's and Jill's friendship it says on pages 155-156 ''Some people are always changing best friends. I'm glad me and Tracy aren't that way.'' Those are two of the very few things that I liked about this book. I have a few negatives dealing with this book and one of them are is that Jill's parents don't exactly punish her the right way. I will prove this statement on page''But you will have to face the consquences.'' Jill's dad said after Jill put rotten eggs in someone;s mailbox. But I felt Jill should of at least of gotten grounded to make it more realistic. One more negative thing is that Jill at first was a little nice to Linda but then got way too mean. In order to prove that Jill was becoming to mean it says''Tracy had a blue chalk with her and she snapped it in half and both of us laughed like crazy as we wroteBlubber lives here all over the street.'' Blubber is Linda's nick name. Who knew a 5th grader could be so mean, right? Even though I personally did not like this book all that much, but I think people of all ages should read it becuase it will tell them how it may feel like your powerful teasing somebody but you could also be in a spot where you are the one being teased non-stop. So... let's all help the world stop with the terrible situation with bullying!

        October 13, 2003
        Youthful actress Feiffer's voice could easily be mistaken for a fifth-grader's, a circumstance that gives her performance an authentic edge. Linda has become an easy and favorite target for teasing by her classmates. When she gives an oral report on whales, many of the kids decide to begin calling Linda "Blubber," claiming it befits Linda's chubby build. Jill is in on the action with all the others, until the taunting reaches a boiling point and Jill finds herself on the opposite side of the fence—catching the brunt of her classmates' meanness. Unfortunately, Feiffer's reading occasionally lacks rhythm and often fails to capture much of the sarcastic and biting snap that characterizes Blume's story of cruel, pervasive bullying at school (and on the school bus). Though this book was first published nearly 30 years ago, its subject matter remains relevant and should easily hold the attention of middle-graders. To emphasize this sense of timeliness, listeners receive an audio bonus: a conversation between Blume and educator/librarian Pat Scales on the topic of bullying. Ages 9-12.
