9780440413493: Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days!

Is it possible? Can an ordinary human being really become a perfect person in three short days?

Milo Crinkley thought so. What gave him the idea was a book that fell on his head one day at the library--a book with the impressive title Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days! The author, Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish, did look kind of weird, but he claimed to be the world's leading authority on perfection.

Milo took the book home and followed its instructions. He liked the idea of being perfect. Perfect people never had their parents nag at them. Perfect people never had to take the blame for rotten tricks their sisters played. Perfect people never needed erasers. Perfect was obviously the perfect thing to be!

Did Milo become a perfect person in just three days? More important, can you?

Do you think we're going to answer all your questions here when we want you to read this hilarious book?

A personal message from Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish, world's leading expert on perfection:

● Maybe you think it's all a lot of baloney. Maybe you think nobody can become perfect in three short days. Well, maybe you should think again!

Here's my no-risk guarantee: Try this book for just three days. If you're not absolutely delighted with the results, you can go soak your head. Now, what could be fairer than that?

● I won't be satisfied until every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth completes my amazing crash course in perfection. So, remember: If you don't read this book, I'm going to tell on you!

More praise for Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days!


"This book catches the reader with its very first sentence . . . crackling with humor . . . nearly perfect."
--Gannett Westchester Newspapers

"The only difficulty with this book is that everyone will want to be the first one to introduce it to children. . . A real gem."
--State Library of Ohio Checklist

"The moral is encased in laughs, with Manes's style reminiscent of Daniel Pinkwater's and topped by a dash of Kurt Vonnegut. Not perfect but awfully funny."
--Booklist

"What happens . . . changes chuckles to belly laughs!"
--Publishers Weekly

"This clever, funny book doesn't waste time being subtle; its mixture of slapstick/wryness will have kids laughing out loud."
--Marriage and Family Living

"Milo's home-study course in perfection makes a hilarious, zany story which readers will find hard to put down."
--Wings

". . . hysterically funny, and not without relevance for grown-ups seemingly addicted to self-development."
--New Age

"Manes' novel satirizes the countless best sellers that promise smaller waists, slimmer hips and enriched bank accounts."
--School Library Journal

". . . amazing and hilarious."
--The Times of Trenton

"This is a laughing-aloud book. It is far from great literature but very close to the funny bone."
--The Read-Aloud Handbook

"This is an original, offbeat, skillfully conceived and executed book."
--Philadelphia Inquirer

"This book was so good it made me laugh out loud."
--Detroit Free Press

"One of the best children's stories of all time!"
--Goodreads
