Game Over, Pete Watson
By Joe Schreiber, Illustrated by Andy Rash
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company, 2014, Ages 10-13
The book was creative and had a
fresh take on video games. The young boy lived his life like a video
game. He would play video games over and over, even when he wasn't
supposed to be playing. The whole book hilariously includes pictures of
video games. The book was interesting to see what life as a video game
looks like. The book was fun to read and interesting.
The author wrote in a fun and fresh
way. He made the book relate to the audience. The book was well written
and the theme was fun. The author wrote in language that could be easily
understood by the readers. The book had a good theme throughout the
The pictures were fun to look at. The
pictures really showed what a video game looks like. The illustrations
helped to keep the book interesting. All of the pictures tied together
well with the words. The pictures and words were a good combination to
make this book fun to read.
I really enjoyed the book and thought
it was interesting. The book was fun and silly, which made me want to
read more. I would recommend this book to anyone. Middle school students
would probably like this book the most. The book was fun and the theme
was a good idea.
