I have to say I did not really enjoy this book and apparently I have an unpopular opinion. Don't get me wrong the writing is fine and the illustrations throughout the book are very cute. My problem with this book lies with the content and the fact that this book is marketed to children ages and I most certainly would not let my year old read this book.
The entire book is focused on one male character trying to get one female character to notice him, because he likes her. I am just going I have to say I did not really enjoy this book and apparently I have an unpopular opinion.
I am just going to go ahead and assume that the author doesn't have children in this age range, with respect. I do not have any children yet, I have nieces and nephews in this age range who I spend a great deal of time with. I usually pass ARCs onto them and I was excited to read this one, as my 7 year old niece is big into reading. But there is no way I am letting her read this one.
In my opinion, books for this age range should not be focused on a boy trying to get a girl to like him, it is slightly ridiculous. At one point in the book, they are talking about going on a date.
The book would have been really great if the author had focused on the characters making new friends or simply just working on the poetry contest at school, without all the "love" stuff. This is subject matter that I personally just don't find appropriate for children in this age range. Aug 23, Ryan rated it really liked it.

Sometimes friends, sometimes they ignore each other. In this episode, Louie spends a week during Poetry Month helping popular Chuck gain the attention of Fluffy.
Readers of the series will probably be Brothers! Readers of the series will probably be OK with this. I am confused about Tiny - who is apparently a boy but throughout the book swoons over Chuck. The short chapters, quick action and double spacing with large font will attract struggling or new chapter book readers, or make a fun easy read for any reader. Black, white with grayscale sketches every other page or two help the reader see the humor and action. Readers may relate to the brother being ignored, feelings about writing poetry, or having a single dad.
