Edwardo the Horriblest Boy in the World
Edwardo was an ordinary boy. He would get up in the morning, get dressed, have his breakfast, go to school, play games, eat his supper, and go to bed. Sometimes Edwardo would kick things.
And so begins the story of Edwardo. A normal boy who sometimes did naughty things- and then became labeled a horrible boy. He starts living up to his label.
Don't we all know boys and girls like this?
But what happens when someone says thank you to him. When someone assumes he is being nice?
Here's Izie's favorite part.
Edwardo threw water on a dog to be mean and live up to his reputation. But someone assumes he is trying to wash the dog and all of a sudden....
the horrible boy starts becoming a nice boy.
A terrific read. Especially when you feel the need to sit back and give someone who is really testing your limits a bit of compassion.
