Welcome to our first student review on the LIS Secondary Library blog! Thanks to Nabeeha A., a Year 8 student at LIS, for writing about why Don’t Call Me Ishmael is a great read:

” ‘Don’t call me Ishmael!’ by Michael Gerard Bauer is a hilarious book for readers interested in humor. ‘Don’t call me Ishmael!’ is about a boy with the name Ishmael who is picked on and bullied because of his name. This book takes you through an unforgettable year of Ishmael’s embarrassing life. The book isn’t too long and will leave you laughing, despite the times when you just wish you could slap Ishmael and say ‘Why’d you do that?’ I enjoyed the book very much and I hope you do too.”

– Nabeeha, Year 8
