Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key was one of the best books I've ever read. It was hiliarious and I wanted to read it forever.I'm glad you wrote that book because most books bore me to death. This book inspired me to read more because you can experience life through a book. I also read the sequel Joey Pigza Loses Control (that was an excellent book too). I hope you write more Joey Pigza books because they're so awesome!!!

This book is a great book, Jack Gantos is able to mix humor and real life together very well, This is a laugh out loud book, almost as good as the first joey P book, but no where near the Jack Henry series.

I thought that this was a good book..............As to an earlier comment I think that this was one of his times......It is a touching story about a kid that has ADD.....I real Pickeruper and dont stop....
