The 14 Fibs of Gregory K. by Greg Pincus

Yesterday I finished reading The 14 Fibs of Gregory K. by Greg Pincus. It was great! I don't know how I missed this book and haven't read it until now, but I'm thankful I saw it on the Sasquatch Reading Award list of nominees for 2015-2016.

Gregory K. and Kelly are best friends and have been since the age of 3. Gregory K. is terrible at math but great at writing, especially poetry. Kelly is great at math and not so great at writing, although she likes to write.

Kelly just found out she's moving at the end of the school year. The two want to go to Author's Camp together over the summer, but Gregory's failing math class. He has to not only pass math class but come up with a math project for the City Math Class in order to have a chance of attending Author's Camp.

Will Gregory K. be able to come up with a project and pass Mr. Davis's math class in order to spend the summer with Kelly? Read the book to find out.

Here's the book trailer:


  1. Looks super cute! Just added to my Amazon wish list (HUGE list!). Since I'll be teaching 5th next year, I'm looking for new books to spark their interest. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Joanne - Keep checking in. I'm going to try and post a book review/trailer at least once a week. I'm always trying to read new books to recommend to my kids. I'm happy to share a list if you're interested - just let me know.
