I would like to tell you about the book Lionel in the Fall. Lionel has lots of problems in the Fall. First, on the first day of school his new clothes don't match him. Then, his new teacher makes him stand up and say his name in front of the class and that makes his face turn red. Next, Lionel has too many leaves to rake. Finally, on Halloween someone dresses as a dragon just like him.

The best part was when Lionel jumped in all of the leaves. It was also very funny when Lionel had to stand up in front of the class, and he yelled out his name. Louise was my favorite character in the book because she tricked Lionel and dressed as a dragon like him for Halloween.

I think you should read this book because it is great and Lionel is a very funny boy.
