REVIEWS
-

"The Bionic Plague by Paul Sharpe is a delightful little read you will want to share with everyone and makes a terrific gift book to make people laugh. It is a collection of this teacher's funny responses to test questions on many subjects, which he has collected over thirty years as a teacher. Often the humor comes from just misspelled words, which completely change the answer. Some are obviously by inventive students who have no idea what the test question is about. You will be laughing out loud! A really fun read."
