I think this book is great! I read it for a book project on any book! It is about a boy who never really wanted to be famous or popular, but his mom does.

Goody, on the other hand, doesn't want to be famous

Goody, on the other hand, doesn't want to be famous. Fate is against him, for he saves a child from choking on a piece of candy, then breaks a classmate's potentially fatal fall from a ladder and even rescues an abused gorilla from a traveling circus, all of which are glowingly reported in the local and school newspapers. The characters are flimsy caricatures with the most believable person being the grandmother, who has a very minor part in the story.

Clifford's books are always a delight

Clifford's books are always a delight. Timely themes such as adults projecting their own needs for recognition onto children and the consequences of sudden fame are treated incisively but with a farcical overlay. Goodwin (Goody) Tribble, 13, lives in happy obscurity in Four Corners, until he saves a baby from choking and is hailed a hero. Finally, while on a trip to Washington, Goody decides he'd like to be a page and possibly a lawmaker someday, worthy, meaningful ambitions that Goody has discovered on his own. Goody is a real winner: a thoughtful, caring, perceptive kid who has all the right stuff. Readers will appreciate his dilemma and applaud his new found sense of self.

Don't blame the quality of works, and don't blame the people either, because you need the people too. You need to understand the trends and the mainstream ideals of people. This will be my last chapter (I think) for this work, as I think not being famous is a good place to end on a work about being famous, and has a cyclical note to it. Keep in mind that while Wattpad isn't doing anything to hold down your work and keep it out of the spotlight, we're actively working to try and find ways to get every work its time to shine.
