Classic wit by Louis Sachar. My 5th grader was reading by his night light when I went in to check on him. He finished it the same day we got it, and decided he needed more Marving Redpost books.

Back of Book: Marvin Redpost suddenly figures out why he has red hair and blue eyes, while everyone else in his family has brown hair and brown eyes. He's not really Marvin Redpost at all. He is Robert, the Lost Prince of Shampoon! Soon his friends are treating him like royalty. Now all he has to do is break the news to his 'parents.'

I Say: Louis Sachar has a wonderfully off-the-wall, humorous way of presenting some very important lessons. Best of all, you get to giggling through the book and don't realize you're getting the moral by osmosis.
