Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fourth-grader Calvin lives near the beach in Oahu with his mom and little sister. Mom says: You're the man of the house. But Calvin's not great at being the man of the house, or taking care of his responsibilities. He's too busy having fun with his pals, and avoiding Tito, the bully.

Trouble Magnet is the first book in a new series for younger readers full of all the fun of growing up in Hawaii. It introduces a wonderful multicultural cast of characters, including Mr. Purdy, who calls his fourth-grade class Boot Camp; Uncle Scoop, who runs the lunch wagon at the beach; Ledward, Mom's 6'7 boyfriend; and gorgeous, intimidating, 15-year-old Stella-from-Texas, who arrives to be the live-in babysitter--and to step all over Calvin's turf.

Synopsis:

What do you want so badly that you can taste it—and can you persuade someone to give it to you? Thats the subject of a writing assignment Calvins fourth-grade teacher, Mr. Purdy, gives the class. Calvin wants a dog! He reads what hes written to his mom to see just how persuasive he can be. No way, Mom says: Stella, their babysitter, might be allergic, and Calvin is too irresponsible to care for a pet.

Luckily, Moms boyfriend, Ledward, is on Calvins side. He takes Calvin to a place he calls dog heaven. There Calvin meets the dog of his dreams—Streak. Now Calvins got to convince Mom hes dog-responsible, because he and Streak belong together!
