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

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How did Jon Scieszka get so funny, anyway? Growing up as one of six brothers was a good start, but that was just the beginning. 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.

Watch a QuickTime trailer for this book.

Review:

"[W]ill draw chuckles of amusement from middle-graders...and of recognition from their parents and grandparents." Kirkus Reviews
