‘’King of the Bench,’’ by Steve Moore is about a kid named Steve who is a benchwarmer. He never gets on the field in sports unless they are losing 0 to 100.  

But then Steve is pressured to join the school tackle football team  by Jimmy, a BJOC–Big Jock on Campus!

First of all, Steve hates tackling people and hates getting tackled even more!!! But not all hope is lost! When Steve realizes that an original Nintendo 64, that he got by trading an Eskimo Pie, could control people he decides to use it to help his football team win the football season. But then really bad things start to happen…

Can their team still be number one? Find out by reading ‘’King of the Bench!’’

I think that this is a good book because when I read the book it was enjoyable and I couldn’t wait to see what would happen next! It was a real page turner! I would give it 4 out of 5 stars! I think this book is probably most interesting for boys from 8 to 10! So find out what happens by reading ‘’King of the Bench!!

    Nice review! It sounds pretty cool but not really my type of book. After all you recommended it for boys and I’m a girl. Still great job though!

    Fantastic review, Michael! You can be so convincing! I want to read the book so badly after reading your review! Again, fantastic job. 😃

    This sounds like a great book Michael! I am a girl, but it still sounds like an interesting book. I hope Steve can fix his mistake.

    I think this book is great, but how could a Nintendo 64 control people?

    I don’t think it can but then again the book is fiction.
