Book Review/Giveaway: The Humongous Fungus. Ends Nov 15th
The Humongous Fungus by Periwinkle Blue, illustrated by Michele Anderson
About the Book: There’s something rotten in the town of Better-Than-Best, and it’s not your stinky socks! Better-Than-Best is one of the prettiest, little towns you ever could enter, with all of the houses facing the center, and then the humongous fungus comes. It’s black and it’s thick, and it’s making them sick! Ick! Some of it got on a hockey stick and all over poor Charlie Twoodle’s noodles. Who can they call? What can they do? Things go from bad to worse when they call in Bubblehead Bingham Blue, an expert from Timbuktu, who claims to have the cure in the bottom of his shoe. Can they make it go away, or is the humongous fungus here to stay?
My Review: Who knew things like people being in a hurry and moving about in a flurry, no time to smile or talk, or not being kind and not wishing someone a good day will turn a town called Better-Than-Best into a town of humongous fungus, well it did.
Better-Than-Best was the prettiest little town with not so tall buildings. The people were kind; they don’t mind stopping to chat for awhile. It was a town where everybody knew everybody. And when the word got out about this little town people came from the east and west and the town grew to become the biggest town. Things changed, no one bother to stop to say hello. There was no time to smile or stop to help answer a question. The town was now cursed with the Humongous Fungus….lol! It was everywhere, on the rooftops, fences, plants, food and more. It was time for the people to come up with how to get rid of this curse.
This book is really funny and I think children will enjoy reading it. This will be great for classroom teaching.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
Books Given in 2011: 315
