This book is about two guys named Jeff and Wiley. Jeff and Wiley give nicknames to people. For instance, their subís name is Mr. Hughes, but they call him Mr. Huge.

 

Jeffís nickname is Skunk. Wileyís nickname is Gas Bag, and Charlesís nickname is Snoopy. Heís called Snoopy because he likes to snoop, but he doesnít like that name. This all happens at a school called Old Orchard Public School..

 

The authorís purpose is to make people laugh. The nicknames that they give to people are funny and never really mean. Jeff and Wiley both like a girl named Cassandra. Their friendship could be broke. See who gets the girl and what nicknames they try to give her.

 

This story is so hilarious. Itís my favorite book. I hope you like this book as much as I did.††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
