Lucas Cott is one of the smartest kids in Mrs. Hockaday's third grade -- but he is also the most rambunctious. Lucas doesn't mean to be the class clown, so he promises to try to behave, even though it doesn't sound like much fun.

With the best intentions, Lucas still manages to cause the unexpected when he accidentally lets a yardful of autumn leaves loose in his classroom, gets his head stuck in a chair during a school assembly, and even makes a daring bet with Cricket, the class brain. But when Mrs. Hockaday assigns him the part of a clown in their class circus, Lucas knows he would be better as the ringmaster. Can he convince his teacher, or will he always be just the class clown?

This is a warm and funny story about a boy who learns that there's a time and place for everything -- even humor.

Xinetan
Whether you are a teacher, a parent, or a student this is a great and entertaining story of a student named Lucas Cott who is the typical "class clown." However, through the story and the many events, Lucas finds that he enjoys NOT being the class clown more than he does the negative attention. It's a great story of how someone can change thier perspective and then change their behavior! Great story.

CLASS CLOWN

Lukas & Me?

This is a GREAT book, very funny, etc. Believe it or not, I like the characters names: Lucas Cott (a class clown); Cricket Kaufman (is Cricket a real name?); Mrs. Hockaday (the 3rd grade teacher); Arthur Lewis; Julio Sanchez (I couldn’t get Julio’s last name until page 95!); Sara Jane Cushman; Mrs. Phillips (the nurse); and Lucas’s 2 year old twin brothers Marcus and Marius [those names were Roman, which I didn’t know!].

The best part was Lucas and the twins playing wrestling: “For one thing, ever since he had begun watching wrestling matches on television and decided that he wanted to become a wrestler, he had two in-house opponents on which to practice his holds.” He learned the half nelson, the figure four, the cradle, and perfecting a double chicken wing with the kids. “‘No one gets hurt in the matches on TV,’ Lucas said.”

I remember wresting on TV at Sunnyside arena in Queens, NY and Madison Square Garden. And when I was 11 years old and my brother, Harold, was 3 years old, we did the same things. I remember a wrestler named Antonino Rocca and he seemed like a nice guy. And I was in Sunnyside area only once. (When my father thought wrestling was rigged, I didn’t believe it, but now I think he was right.)

Anyhow, this was a TERRIFIC book. Oh, by the way, Johanna Hurwitz wrote it and illustrations by Sheila Hamanaka were great, too! CLASSIC!!!

P.S. --- When they go to 4th grade, the teacher is Mrs. Schraalenburgh (“There was a joke in the school that only the smartest kids in fourth grade had Mrs. Schraalenburgh because no one else could either pronounce or spell her name.”)

I purchase this book for my nine year old daughter. This book is part of her summer reading. The service was very prompt and the book was in good condition.
She enjoyed this book.

"Ha Ha Ha. That jokester is so funny. I already know I am going to have a fun time in his class. He mocks and tells jokes like they do at the circus. He represents class clowns everywhere. His name is Lucas Cott. We are in the third grade." These are the

words that could have been spoken by one of Lucas' classmates.

In the book Class Clown, by Johanna Horwitz, Lucas is always fooling around. One of his funny "tricks" is blowing his pencil up the desk, with his mouth, than letting it roll down and the same thing again and again. After a couple of weeks in school his teacher, Mrs. Hockaday, will not tolerate it any more. He needs to change or he might be in detention or suspension of school, which he does not want to be in. She tries to get him to do homework and study. She knew he was a smart kid so she kept trying to get him on the right path. Then Mrs. Hockaday announces that her class was going to put on play. The teacher asks the kids to brainstorm ideas on what the play should be based on. Every student was brainstorming ideas even Lucas.

"Let's do a "Cinderella" play," Cricket says. "NO!" said practically every boy. Then one boy said "How `bout a monster truck play." Lucas had an idea. And oh was it great! The play was practiced then when it was time something bad happened. Read Class Clown and figure out what the play is, who is the star, and if Lucas can change.

Johanna Hurwitz's book, The Class Clown, is about Lucas Cott's ups and downs in the school year. He is probably one of the smartest students in the third grade although he hides that fact by always getting in trouble. But when he ties on a bet with Cricket Kaufman (who plans on being a lawyer), Cricket takes Lucas as her practice client and keeps Lucas out of trouble and then things get interesting.

This book has a great story line and is very well witten. It was a lot of fun to read. Johanna Hurwitz pulls you into the story at the very beginning of the book and then keeps pulling all the way. It's a good third-fourth grade book. All in all, it's a good book.
Students and teacher alike will enjoy this story. Lucas has a knack for getting himself in sticky situations. (Most teachers have had a student like this at one time or another and children will recognize a classmate in Lucas.) Lucas fakes an eye examination, when told to bring in a leaf t school he brings in an entire bag of them, and he manages to gethis head stuck in a chair during an assemby. Lucas means well but... This is a very enjoyable book. It has eight chapters and is a great book for second and third graders.
