Book Overview

Brian Higman--called Big Hig by his friends--is about to be in big trouble.

It's Monday morning, and his teacher Miss Fromme is about to collect homework. . . and Brian didn't do his. There's a big red zero heading his way, and he knows his parents are going to explode when they hear about it.

But Big Hig has a good reason for having forgotten his "sloppy copy" first draft, involving his impossible five-year-old brother,...

An "outstanding" book

Characters in The Sloppy Copy Slipup remind me of the kids from my own fifth grade class. Watching Big Hig's multi-stepped logic as he explains about the homework assignment is entertaining becuase it's so familiar. Even the teacher's sentences and mannerisms accurately reflect teachers I have met along the way. Hilarious recognizable moments whether in school or at home with Brian Higman. What a good read!

The Sloppy Copy Slipup

A terrific read for children in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades.This is a story about a boy who is not sure of himself when it comes to putting his ideas on paper and how he overcomes this insecurity. The author does an exceptional job of drawing the reader into the story through wit, suspense and the telling of a tale that captures the attention of the school age child. Not only is the book fun to read but it may help children in this age group overcome their own obstacles to writing. An outstanding book, well written and illustrated and most importantly it may help your child become more confident in their own ability to "tell a story" and commit it to paper. Exceptional...5 stars!!!

Great read!

My daughter is taking a creative writing class over the summer, and I'm buying several copies for the class. Excellent role model and story for children that love not only to read, but to express themselves on paper. Highly recommended for grades 2-6

Illustrates the creative process for writing for kids

An entertaining read for children. Details the creative writing process for kids in a way that they can relate to and makes the point that the best writing is writing what you know. The author writes in a simple and clear style and presents advanced writing techniques in an engaging manner so they are accessible to younger children (and perhaps parents). I highly recommend this book. I've bought it for my nieces. Anne/NJ

Entertaining and Educational

The book is a great example of its main idea, writing. It provides the rules and then illustrates them in a fun and original way, finishing up with an accessible summary. I highly recommend this outstanding 'Big Hig' story.
