The Lovereading4Kids comment
The third of 8 great adventures about an ordinary boy with a big heart and a strong desire to work things out even when they’re complicated. When Casey tells Marvin that he’ll turn into a girl if he kisses his elbow he doesn’t really believe her. But, when he does kiss his elbow, he begins to worry! Could Marvin be turning into a girl and, if so, how can he stop it?
Marvin Redpost 3: Is He a Girl? by Louis Sachar
Marvin Redpost is yet again caught in a dilemma. He's been told that he'll turn into a girl if he kisses his elbow, and after accidentally doing just that he wonders if it is really going to happen to him. His voice starts to change, he longs to have pigtails and he even dots his 'i's with a heart in class! What on earth has happened to Marvin, and will he ever be the same again? This is a charming story, which will give you lots of laughs. Louis Sachar has the ability to bring together the absurd and the real with the perfect ingredients to entertain all children aged 5 to 7 years.
