Two Nit Boy stories in one book!
“This book contains two stories in one. Both amused and entertained. My 8 year old quickly became fond of Lewis and his itchy companions. This was evident when she came running to tell me how horrible it was that Ms Herrick was about to shave Lewis’s hair off. Bancks undoubtedly created an endearing character in Lewis, one that middle grade children will invest in and care about. I witnessed my daughter become absorbed in the plot. She immersed herself in Lewis and Ned’s world. Emotions were evoked. These are the signs of a talented author and a great storyline. The intermittent black and white illustrations are a great addition to the story line. They are simple but spark humor. The characters are personified, even the nits, further enhancing the reading experience.”
