Mighty Monty by Johanna Hurwitz

Book Description

This is a warm and funny follow-up to "Mostly Monty", continuing the adventures of a young boy with asthma. Montgomery Gerald Morris sounds like the name of a mighty and important person, but it's actually the name of a quiet first-grader known to his family and classmates as 'Monty'. Monty may be small and shy, but he's also a mighty smart kid who, despite his asthma, always finds his own way of doing things.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » In an interconnected set of short stories, first-grader Monty Morris acquires a huge collection of old magazines, takes part in a class play, makes an outdoor birthday party special, begins karate lessons and successfully performs in an exhibition. Monty's worries about his asthma underlie all he does, and the effect of these stories is gently reassuring: He hasn't had an attack in some time and these new activities don't bring one on. He even performs in a karate uniform without a pocket for his inhaler. Hurwitz also recognizes and deals with the first grader's predictable stage fright. In the background, Monty's gentle and affectionate parents reflect the tone of this warm collection, just right for able first-grade readers like Monty. Soft pencil drawings by McGrory (most not seen) will be interspersed throughout. Readers of Mostly Monty (2007) will appreciate the boy's growing self-confidence (and, in particular, his father's encouragement as he tries new things), but this title stands on its own. (Fiction. 5-8) (Kirkus Reviews)
