Publisher Comments:

What do you mean they don't give trophies for playing video games?

It’s only fair, isn’t it? Clueless McGee has mastered his Ninja Warz video game and he’d like a trophy. It seems like a lot of extra work to have to win the science fair to get one. . . . Yet that trophy is REALLY nice. And Clueless does have an idea for a magnetic pickle that seems like an obvious winner. So okay, he’s in. Until someone steals the trophy—and then he’s on the case! Clueless will have to call on his finest ninja skills —not to mention some luck and a lot of help from people more competent than he is—in order to solve the mystery. . . .

 
Jeff Mack continues to hit every note just right in this hilarious series that young middle-graders will be reading, rereading, and exchanging with their friends until (and even after) the next installment lands on the shelves. With comic-style art throughout, this book is perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, Dork Diaries and for any kid who likes mysteries, likes to laugh, and is a video game master!

Review:

"Star of a long-running comic strip, sixth-grader Nate Wright makes the leap to a cartoon-laden chapter book in the smart alecky vein of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Nate (who's 'not exactly Joe Honor Roll') dissects the horrors of middle school, from vindictive teachers to the popular girls' lunch table, aka Fort Knox ('You can try to get in, but you have no chance'). The wisp of a plot revolves around a fortune cookie that predicts, 'Today you will surpass all others,' launching Nate into actions that indeed cause him to surpass all others with seven detentions. (His ill-conceived plans include speed-eating 148 servings of cafeteria green beans.) The book's appeal lies in Nate's wickedly astute observations and the savvy integration of cartoons with text. Angry teachers' speech bubbles drip with icicles, and sidebars house humorous asides: 'When a teacher completely snaps and starts screaming, it's called a Full Godfrey. (When Mrs. Godfrey does it, it's called Monday).' Though Nate may not achieve the fame he seeks with his classmates, this sharp-witted and unflappable protagonist just might find it with readers. Ages 8 — 12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Inspired by Peirce's "Big Nate" comic strip, this first book in a six-part series introduces Nate Wright: sixth grader, class clown, self-described genius, and the all-time record holder for school detentions. Illustrations.

Synopsis:

The fifth book in Kate and Sarah Klise's 43 Old Cemetery Road series is a lighthearted gothic epistolary novel told through letters, newspaper articles, transcripts, and drawings, in which the trio at Spence Mansion get an exciting offerand#8212;from Hollywood!

Synopsis:

Shrek meets Wimpy Kid in this epically funny tale of a troll trying to figure out how to be more popular

Its not easy being Zarf. As a troll, he's stuck at the bottom of the middle school hierarchy, way below

the prince and knights (populars), ogres and giants (jocks), and even the lowly minstrels (band geeks). Plus, trolls aren't exactly known for their brain power or cool demeanor. But it gets worse. When the king disappears and Zarf's archenemy, the prince, ascends the throne, he makes Zarf's life even more miserable. And so it is that Zarf and his two sidekicks (a neurotic, mutton-obsessed pig and the not-funny son of the court jester) set out to find the missing king as well as their way to middle school heroism. (Okay, the heroism part might be wishful thinking.)

The first book in this brilliant new illustrated series from comics creator Rob Harrell has the perfect mix of real world and fairy tale.
