It marks the day that he is ready to take his place as a wringer at the annual family fest, Pigeon Day. It's an honour and a tradition. But even though he would rather stay nine for the rest of his life than become a wringer, Palmer can't stop himself from getting older. Then an unwanted visitor arrives on his windowsill, and Palmer knows that it is a sign. Somehow, he must find a way to break tradition.

Before I even started reading this book I had the question what is a wringer. Throughout the book, I found myself asking many questions which, like any good book, were answered and didn't leave me confused. The vocabulary in the book was simple, but the Wringer had a good message. The book was interesting because it is not what I would usually read.

I have been enjoying reading your posts about the book "Crash". Mrs. Hyde and I (your 5th grade teachers) are looking forward to doing some further exploration of this book within the first weeks of school. A graduate of Gettysburg College, JERRY SPINELLI went to win the Newberry Medal for Maniac Magee, the sixth of his more than fifteen acclaimed books for young readers. They include Milkweed; Stargirl; Love, Stargirl; Wringer; Knots in My Yo-yo String: The Autobiography of a Kid; Hokey Pokey; and My Daddy and Me. Growing up, Jerry Spinelli played no fewer than five different sports-from football and track to basketball.

If they struggle with more than a few words on the page, it is probably too difficult, but the book would still be a great book to read aloud to your child.

This book is captivating and intriguing. In a world were peer pressure is such an issue for our young adults, it's refreshing to read a story that challenges that and values humanity above else. If you are a parent worried about what your children will experience and what decisions they will make in life, give them the gift of Wringer and see them fall in love with Nipper, and watch as their humanity unfolds.
This subject matter was difficult for me to digest. Shooting birds then wringing their necks until they are dead. I don't think this is a book for children.
I liked wringer because it plot. And how the book teaches go for good and not what your friends think. And how its OK to be your self and to be different. Also you cant be forced to do the wrong thing. And that is why i like wringer and Jerry Spuhelli
I was just going to read this book as a last minute "Summer Reading" assignment, but as soon as I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down!!! The book i thought would take a week to read only took one day! This book made me laugh and want to keep reading it from cover to cover (or in my case "screen to screen") and I just LOVED IT!! As a person who normally doesn't read that much, having a book that I really WANTED to keep reading and not put down until the book was over felt great! This book was fantastic and I cannot wait to read more books by Jerry Spinelli!! This was a without a doubt "five star" rating!
My daughter bought these books for the 4th grade students at her school. The kids were listening to the teacher read this out loud and asked if they could have their own copy to follow along. It makes my old heart happy to think maybe this world isn't so bad and kids do still like to read actual books and not the internet.
Ax an adult I liked the book. A little disturbing for the under 10 set though
Palmer, Dorothy, and Nipper. So much fun to read and follow along with the process of children growing into responsible young adults. Well written, great characters. Good read.
I've loved this book since I was a kid. And as an editor, I actually tell my authors to read it as a great example of using interpersonal character development and interaction to drive the story forward. Fantastic writing, and very moving story. Definitely an emotional gripper.
