Tommy Greenwald

“With his ‘deep-seated love of not reading,’ this title’s young narrator, Charlie Joe, speaks straight to other book-averse middle-schoolers. But avid readers will equally enjoy Charlie Joe’s story, with its wild parodies and plot and character surprises that continue to the very end. A perfect read aloud, this debut is filled with passages that beg to be shared . . . with its subversive humor and contemporary details drawn straight from kids’ worlds, this clever title should attract a wide following.” —Booklist, starred review
