Rave reviews for Absolutely Almost! " Graff's gentle story invokes evergreen themes of coming to appreciate one's strengths (and weaknesses), and stands out for its thoughtful, moving portrait of a boy who learns to keep moving forward, taking on the world at his own speed." - Publishers Weekly, starred review "Achingly superb, Albie's story shines." - Kirkus Reviews, starred review "...Albie comes through significant emotional hardship to a genuine sense of self-worth." - SLJ, starred review "Beautifully written, Albie's story is accessible and dignified, with a gentle message that will touch any reader's heart. Middle-grade readers will love the references to Dav Pilkey's inexhaustibly popular Captain Underpants series, which has introduced so many children to the fun side of reading. A perfect book to share with struggling readers." - Booklist, starred review
