Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  TKono
"Manolito Four-Eyes: The 2nd Volume of the Great Encyclopedia of My Life" by Elvira Lindo is a facetious children's book. The setting is in Spain, and the main character Manolito is a normal kid. The book tells many random anecdotes of his life. From chopping off his baby brother's hair to becoming the treasurer of a gang to having his neighbor's dog follow him to school, everything that happens to Manolito is comically unfortunate.

Translated from Spanish, this book shines some light on Spanish culture. The illustrations provided in the book are humorous yet to-the-point with respect to the plot. The grammar is basic, so young readers will not get lost. Since Manolito hangs around with troublemakers, there are some mentionings of smoking, shoplifting, and such. The book does not promote them, but they are portrayed in a manner of chicanery.

There are some mentionings of smoking, shoplifting, and such.
