If you’re reading this, you’ve survived the end of the Mayan calendar. If you can’t read this, then either the world is over, or we’ve been hacked again.

So you’ve come through yet another harrowing media-fueled apocalyptic panic, and you’re probably wondering what you can possibly do until you have to prepare for the next emergency. Well, do I have a suggestion for you.

Sign up for Cannonball Read V!

If you think, “Oh that reading and writing s*** isn’t for me,” think again. Why, even a 6-year-old can do it. Think I’m wrong? Well just read the cutest review ever, from our youngest junior Cannonballer, 6-year-old joemyjoe, as dictated to his mother, Scootsa1000:

Cannonball Read IV: Ghost Buddy Zero to Hero by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver

I just read a book called Ghost Buddy: Zero to Hero (I just call it Ghost Buddy) by Henry Winkler and Lin Oliver. I loved it.

Its about a boy named Billy Broccoli and a ghost named Hoover Porthouse. Billy and his family move into a really old house and it has a ghost in it, a ghost of a boy who died there 99 years ago. At first, Hoover scared Billy, but they became friends after a while. Billy didn’t want his own ghost, but he realized that his ghost could help him with some bullies who bothered him at school.

Billy and Hoover played some tricks on a bully named Rod Broadstone. They made it seem like Billy was much stronger than he was, so that Rod wouldn’t think he was a weakling to pick on.

It was a good story about bullying and why you should never do it. It can hurt peoples’ feelings and their bodies. But it was also a really funny book. It made me laugh.

There are more Ghost Buddy books and I want to read them all.

My mom says that when she was little, Henry Winkler was a really cool and famous guy. She sent him a tweet about how much I loved this book, and she was really excited that he tweeted her back!

Look what happens when you join Cannonball Read - you could get RETWEETED by the FONZ. How can you resist that? Come on along for #5, it’s gonna be a blast. Aaaaaaaaay!
