Knucklehead: Tall Tales and Mostly True Stories of Growing Up Scieszka Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Throw in Catholic school, lots of comic books, lazy summers at the lake with time to kill, babysitting misadventures, TV shows, jokes told at family dinner, and the result is Knucklehead. Part memoir, part scrapbook, this hilarious trip down memory lane provides a unique glimpse into the formation of a creative mind and a free spirit.
