Speckle the Annoying Freckle by Michael Verrett is a fun children's book about a young girl named Grace. Grace enjoys reading, and she reads a lot. She keeps a stack of books on her bedside table. One night, she decided that she would try to read three books all in one night, because it would be a personal best for her. She doesn't make it through all three books. She falls asleep while reading the third, a book with red dots. The next day, when she wakes up, she discovers a red freckle had climbed out of her book and onto her face. The freckle introduces itself as Speckle. Grace wants Speckle gone, so she tries many different plans to get rid of it, but her plans don't work. How will she get rid of Speckle?

I really enjoyed reading Speckle the Annoying Freckle by Michael Verrett. The book is very well written and descriptive. I liked that Speckle often spoke in rhymes. The story is very creative in that Grace tries many different ways to get rid of Speckle. The book has many funny parts that will make the reader laugh. I liked that the book mentions many well known books that will make the reader think 'I've read that.' The pictures by Michael Verrett are well drawn and realistic looking, and they clearly depict each scene. Parents will enjoy reading this book to their child, and children will want to read it again and again. I would definitely recommend this story to all young readers.
