    This is an amazing book for young readers. This is about a young boy who gets a special part in a play and hopes to not be over looked like the middle child he is! Amazing book. If you love this book read freckle juice by Judy Blume.

        This is a great book for middle children. Freddy has always felt overshadowed and upstaged by his siblings, but now he's the center of attention when he joins the school play.

            The One In The Middle Is The Green Kangaroo was about a boy named Freddy. He was the middle child in his family, he had an older brother and a younger sister. He got all one his brother's old clothes and his brother got new clothes He also had to share a room with his brother, since he his little sister got his room. When he tried out for a play he made it but still in the middle. In the play he was always in the middle of everyone never on the top and never on the bottom, but he was fine with that. He learned its not that bad in the middle.

              I usually always enjoy Judy Blume's books and this one was no different. The plot was so interesting and I loved all of the characters.
