David and his best friend Michael were tagged with awful nicknames way back in preschool when everyone did silly things. Fast-forward to seventh grade: 'Pottymouth' and 'Stoopid' are still stuck with the names - and everyone in school, including the teachers and their principal, believe the labels are true.

So how do they go about changing everyone's minds? By turning their misery into megastardom on TV, of course! And this important story delivers more than just laughs - it shows that the worst bullying doesn't have to be physical, and that things will get better.

I have read other books by James Patterson, so naturally, my expectations were quite high. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it, and found the story hilarious. A brilliant book, empathising with the lives of bullied children, and showing that being a nerd is good.

David and Michael are given the nicknames Pottymouth and Stoooopid when they are in Kindergarten and they really don't like being called names and being teased. One day they manage to turn things around on the bullies. I really liked this book. I felt sad for David and Michael when they were being bullied but the ending made me happy.

The title itself made Tom want to read it straightaway. 

We  read other books by James Patterson, and again he has struck gold with another hilarious  brilliant book,  understanding the lives of bullied children, and showing that being geeky is not a bad thing.

First time Tom has really had a hardback book since he has been reading "older books" and said he prefers paperback. (his opinion)

Written by Scarlett age 7 -

Potty mouth and stoopid is a really funny book. The book tells you to be yourself and not be like other people. To be your own person because this makes you special. The characters are silly and crazy and potty mouth makes up his own words all the time. The real names are Michael and David. I liked the personality of the characters and the story was about 2 boys that were bullied and how they overcome and laugh at the bullies.

It was great to see a book that talked about bullying. Scarlett expressed how nice it was that the boys didn't let the bullies bother them and how important it was to 'be yourself'. As a parent this was a really important lesson for them to be taught in a book that Scarlett enjoyed reading!

I read it myself (an adult)

This is a good children's book that focuses on the underdogs of the story, Pottymouth and Stoopid, (David and Michael).  They are given horrible nicknames at kindergarten (it's all set in America), and they get stuck with these throughout their school life.  That's until ex-Dad takes their exploits  and makes a hit cartoon about them! Overnight (but reluctant) stars the boys realise that actual nerds love them, and that they are really very bright boys who just haven't seen their potential.  It's a good story about how bullies don't win, and that it's ok to be a nerd.  I would say though it deals with a family death, divorce and foster parents who swear a lot, so the book is probably more suited to a 9,10&11 year old child.

I like James Patterson as an author for adults - so was keen to see how his writing skills for childrens books would match up -  A lovely written tale about two children who were given unpleasant nicknames at their preschools early on - Pottymouth and Stoopid - which then stuck and followed them throughout their school lives. The book explained how this affected the boys, with both children and teachers still using the nicknames.  They decide enough is enough and try to change peoples perception of them by creating a new persona for themselves as superstars!  

This book explained how a simple name calling incident can create years of unhappiness and bullying, and reminds children of the importance of being kind to one another. It always shows that belief in yourself can over come and change peoples views of you, and how to cope with bullying of this kind.  I read this to my twins and we had a discussion about school and what kind of issues they felt were similar at their school. It was a little hard going at times, and not really suitable for early readers given the length and more complex language however my children enjoyed it and I think a valuable lesson can be learnt from this book.
