Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Newbery Medal-winning author of Dead End in Norvelt,  the uproarious final volume of Jack Henry stories

According to his new motto—A WRITERS JOB IS TO TURN HIS WORST EXPERIENCES INTO MONEY—Jack Gantoss alter ego Jack Henry is going to be filty rich even before he gets out of junior high, for his life is filled with the worst experiences imaginable. For instance, in the course of the few months covered in this closing cycle of interlinked stories, Jack is humiliated by a gorgeous syncronized swimmer, gets a tattoo the size of an ant on his big toe, flubs an IQ test and nearly fails wood shop, and has to dig up his dead dog not once but twice. And thats not the half of it!

 

At the close of this final book of semi-autobiographical stories, Jack may not end up rolling in dough, but he will prove once again “a survivor, an ‘everyboy whose world may be wacko but whose heart and spirit are eminently sane” (School Library Journal).

Synopsis:

Comic misadventures ensue when seventh-grader Jack tries to write the great American novel.
