Praise for Bruno for Real

As with I, Bruno, Caroline Adderson effectively evokes the perspective of a seven year-old boy through her simple text and precise word choice… Adderson celebrates a child’s imagination in a realistically humourous way… an excellent addition to the young reader’s library. Highly recommended.

—Canadian Materials

Bruno has so much personality he almost leaps off the page, and the energy of the book matches its main character, Bruno. Bruno’s hijinx are entertaining and true to life, with every chapter a fast-paced, self-contained story… Highly recommended for school and public libraries.

—Resource Links

Pick up this book of lively tales for your little one and you won’t be disappointed.  You will also get practical tips on getting rid of hiccups, on being really bad (like eating the arms and legs off a gingerbread man BEFORE the head) and on communing with nature, bartering, oh, and insomnia.
