              This book is about Greg and his magic eight ball. Greg uses his magic eight ball to help him on a test. It wasn't a good idea to do that, because his teacher notices it when he drops it on the floor. And also because it is useless.

                I loved this book because greg is believing in a lucky eight ball. He is believing that it can tell him exactly what to do when this family or friend said something and he would shake it and it would tell him what to said,and sometimes the lucky eight ball would said something that was not right for the qustion. I would recommend this book to people who like make-believe chapter book.

                  this book is funny in some parts so would say it would be a good book probably for older kids to read.

                    It's funny but it is really the same thing every book, he gets in trouble and then he gets out, its not even really funny anymore.
