Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

GRAHAM SALISBURY is the author of six Calvin Coconut books: Trouble Magnet, The Zippy Fix, Dog Heaven, Zoo Breath, Hero of Hawaii, and Kung Fooey, as well as several novels for older readers, including the award-winning Lord of the Deep, Blue Skin of the Sea, and Under the Blood-Red Sun. Graham Salisbury grew up in Hawaii. Calvin Coconut and his friends attend the same school Graham did—Kailua Elementary School. 

About the Author

Calvin's dad is a famous pop singer, and he's going to be in a concert on the island! Everyone wants to go. Dad gave Calvin's mom 10 tickets, and Calvin has to decide who gets the last ticket: teacher's pet Shayla, who has a crush on him (ick!) or Tito the bully? But much more important: Calvin  hasn't seen his dad in four years. And he's never met Dad's new wife. Will Dad still like Calvin now?
