Book Review: Dr. Nicholas Is Ridiculous! (My Weirder School #8) By Dan Gutman
Dr. Nicholas Is Ridiculous! (My Weirder School #8) By Dan Gutman and pictures by Jim Paillot
About the Book: Dr Nicholas is the weirdest history teacher in history! She doesn’t care about wars and presidents. She is going to teach the kids about the history of the toilet bowl! Is she crazy? She built a time machine so she can take the kids into the past… and the future. Guess who’s going to get stuck in the time?
My Review: A.J hates tests because they are no fun. As far as he is concerned tests should be thrown into a giant garbage can. Most of the kids felt the same way. Mr. Granite their class teacher assure them that every student in the State will be taking the same test because the Board of Education wanted to find out how much they know about history.
A few days later A.J’s principle wanted to see the entire students in the assembly hall. He announced that results for the test came back and they did horribly, EllaMentrySchool got the worst scores in the whole country. So he has decided to bring in a professor from a local college to help teach them history. The professor came on stage and introduced as Dr Nicholas. Dr Nicholas is an old white lady who walks with a cane. The students started to ask questions.
Q. How old are you?
A. 92 years and proud if it she said
Q. Did you ever meet Abraham Lincoln?
A. No, said Dr. Nicholas, but years ago I drove one of his convertibles
Q. Where you alive when there were dinosaurs?
A. Oh yes. In fact, I used to ride a dinosaur to school
This book will make you laugh so hard it’s that funny. And find out why Dr. Nicholas built a time machine to take the class on a field trip to the past and future and who get stuck in time. You’ll have to read to find out!
The illustrations by Jim Paillot help to makes the story hilarious. I highly recommend

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
Books Given in 2012: 380
