At Laketon Elementary, the boys and the Girls are playing a game that witch ever side talks less, wins. The principle and the other teachers are wondering why is fifth grade lunch so quiet. But the teachers are getting mad, because no one is talking. Then the parents get involved. But the game is still on. Which side wins, girls or boys? Can they Explain to the grown ups that this whole thing is a mistake?

Loving this author! I...

Loving this author! I love the power he gives the children in his book to make changes to their environment without disrespecting authority. I love that in each of the books that we, Julia and I, have read, he is using the power of language/communication to make change. Great book to have ready with my 7 year old!

The Unshushables are...

"The Unshushables" are the non-stop, talking 24/7 fifth graders in Dave Packer's class. After reading about Mahatma Ghandi and his ritual of not talking one day a week to clear his mind, Dave, a member of the unshushables, decides to give this practice a try. When he has an encounter with a classmate, Lynsey, a fellow chatterbox, the boys and girls of Laketon Elementary are drawn into a silent battle of boys vs. girls for 48 silent hours. The boys and girls can only speak to answer questions at school and even then, can only answer in 3 words. These short answers and overall silence cause teachers and administrators to look at how the kids are really acting and try to figure out what's really going on. The book allows the reader to think how we communicate and why as we see the 5th graders go through their silent battle. A very enjoyable read recommended for the early YA set.

The teachers at Daves...

The teachers at Dave's school call the 5th-graders The Unshushables, because they never stop talking. But that all changes when Dave and Lynsey start and boys-vs-girls contest to see who can last the longest without talking at all. A fun read, but there's nothing earth-shattering here.
