Kung Fooey (Calvin Coconut)by Graham Salisbury
Synopses & Reviews
Calvin Coconut's fourth-grade class meets Benni Obi, a weird and likable new kid. Benny brags about knowing kung fu, eats worms, crickets, and chocolate-covered scorpions, and says all the wrong things to bully Tito. Uh-oh. Meanwhile, neighborhood kids and pets clear the road—Calvin's babysitter Stella is learning how to drive. She's got a lead foot.
Readers will enjoy the humor in Kung Fooey as Calvin's smarts and courage help him learn something new about standing up for friends, and facing a bully.
Calvin's mom says his new dog Streak smells bad. Especially her breath. Calvin's convinced that Streak's stink is a good one, but he's worried. If he doesn't solve Streak's problem soon, mom might make him give his beloved new dog back to the shelter. So when his teacher assigns his students a discovery project, Calvin decides to discover the worst stinks--and find a solution to Streak's bad breath.
