Reviews :

Joy (BookHive (www.bookhive.org))
Milo wants to be perfect. Who wouldn't? Then his parents won't ever be annoyed with him, because he will no longer break things, fight with his sister, or slurp his soup. Perfect kids don't need to go to school. And why not play major league ball? After all, he'd be able to throw perfect games. Milo learns a lot about himself and others as he strives for perfection. Maybe you will too. Category: Humor; Read Aloud. Grade Level: Primary (K-3rd grade); Intermediate (4th-6th grade). 1982, Clarion. Ages 5 to 12.
