“Mr. Gedrick and Me,” by Patrick Carman is about a family that is falling apart since the father died last summer.

Stanley Darrow, one of three siblings, secretly hires a mysterious and strange manny — a male nanny — in an effort to bring the family back together.

When Mr. Gedrick, the manny, arrives, Mrs. Darrow was surprised and wants him out of the house, but he starts bringing magic almost immediately.

From cleaning the messy kitchen in 4 minutes flat and helping Stanley lift weights, this manny sure is mysterious and one of a kind. He even helps Stanley gain his courage to look for his missing pet lizard under the house and help Mrs. Darrow save her job!

What will he do next? Read to book to find out!

I would recommend this book for 8-11 year olds because you can feel different emotions during different parts of the book. You may feel happy that the Darrow family are getting help.

Also, the book is kind of realistic, but there are some parts that are magical, like when Mr. Gedrick’s magic helped Stanley lift the weights.

I would give this book 5 stars because every page is really interesting.

    I like how you put your review together. Also, it would be nice to have a manny like him.
