I just recently read the story "Charles" which I really enjoyed.Out of all the stories "Charles" was my favorite, and these are the reasons why. The first reason this is my favorite story is because I was entertained by how his parents didn't relize that he was a brat.An example of how he is a brat is when he first walked in the door he yelled "Isn't anybody home?", and when he talks he is really mean to his parents but his mom just corrects him on his grammar. Next, I like how he makes up "Charles"to get out of his parents getting mad at him and how he tells tham everybody had to stay after because "Charles" was bad. The last reason "Charles" is my favorite story is because how his mom talks to his teacher and finds out how there is no "Charles" and the trouble maker is her own son. Since "Carles" is cute, entertaining and a fun story it is my favorite story we have read.
