Summary

Meet the Fletchers. Their year will be filled with new schools, old friends, a grouchy neighbor, hungry skunks, leaking ice rinks, school plays, wet cats, and scary tales told in the dark!

There’s Sam, age 12, who’s mostly interested in soccer, food, and his phone; Jax, age 10, who’s psyched for fourth grade and thinks the new neighbor stinks, and not just because of the skunk; Eli, age 10 (but younger than Jax), who’s thrilled to be starting this year at the Pinnacle School, where everyone’s the smart kid; and Frog (not his real name), age six, who wants everyone in kindergarten to save a seat for his invisible cheetah. Also Dad and Papa.

WARNING: This book contains cat barf, turtle pee, and some really annoying homework assignments.

Perfect for fans of The Penderwicks and James Patterson’s Middle School series, this seriously funny, modern family adventure features two dads, four adopted boys, and a variety of pets.

"Fans of Beverly Cleary’s Quimbys, Judy Blume’s Hatchers, and, more recently, Jeanne Birdsall’s Penderwicks will fervently hope that more Fletcher misadventures are yet to come. ( School,Library Journal

The Family Fletcher

The Family Fletcher is a very family-friendly book based of a large family of 8 (including the cat and dog). you can enjoy this alone or with friends/family (probably better together).

Name calling

The name calling is unnecessarily frequent in this book, which is unfortunate because the premise is good. There are funny bits, but not worth exposing my kid to adult and child characters alike call each other stupid, dork, geek, knucklehead, etc. Its hard enough to keep name calling at bay without more exposure through a book.
