I think Loser was an exellent book, I think it really shows you to look at someone with your heart not your eyes.

this book was about a boy named zinkoff who always loses.he dosn,t notice but everyone in school dose.


i think this book was great except at points i would drone off to somewhere else in the room but near the end i coundn,t stop when the bell rang!!!!!! its also a great book to do a report on. i recomend this book to people who knows how it feels to lose or get picked last!!!!

WOW!! A great Book~!!
(under 18)
The book was a very interesting book. At parts I think it could of been just a little better, but besides that the book was awesome! For instance the part when Zinkoff was actually in the race for field day he was just a pumping his arms away but was going nowhere!!! That was hilarious!
I think tha Donald Zinkoff is a great person!!! And I also think this was a GREAT book!!!!!!

Awsome Book!!
I'm almost 11 and I thoght that this book was great. It had all kinds of funny parts. I liked the part about where Hector was collecting his own earwax to make an earwax candle but he wouldn't take Zinkoff's earwax. Also, I think that that is how lots of other people treat others that way. That is mean but, lots of those kids are bullies. I think that it is sad but, you know thats how life is. Its Hard and Probably Always WILL BE!! I also read this book in class for our book club. We had to make a letter we had to respond in journals and also we had to make a project. This was an awsome book and I hope Jerry makes more of these funny types of books.

P.S. If you haven't reasd the book well START IT!! Its an AWSOME BOOK!! Take My Word!!
