Publisher Comments:

The Pepperday family is moving to Aunt Sallys farm. Mr. Pepperday, Mrs. Pepperday, and Chuckie Pepperday are happy as hogs in slop. But Tooter Pepperday is not. Theres no cable TV, no playground, and shes gone three days without pizza! What does a girl have to do to show her family shell never get used to life on the farm?

“Tooter is a real-life, plucky, resourceful heroine . . . in a good sound story that has a lot to say about the choices we make and the impact they have.”—Booklist

“Tooter Pepperday . . . is sure to bring on the chuckles and the giggles.”

—School Library Journal

Jerry Spinelli is the author of the Newbery Award-winning Maniac Magee, as well as many other titles, including Stargirl and his autobiography, Knots in My Yo-Yo String. The author lives in Pennsylvania.

Synopsis:

Illustrated in black-and-white. Tooter was your average suburban kid, until her parents made her move to Aunt Sally's farm. It's not just that the pizzeria won't deliver--the vegetables on her plate were grown in a pile of compost, and everything smells like goat poop! But spunky Tooter has big plans for getting even--sabotage!

About the Author

Jerry Spinelli won the Newbery Medal in 1991 for Maniac Magee, the sixth of his more than 15 acclaimed books for young readers. Jerry is known for his entertaining and funny books for children and young adults. He grew up in Norristown, PA. At one time, he dreamed of becoming a major league baseball player. All of this changed when his poem about a football game was published at age 16 in the local newspaper. From then on, he wanted to become a writer. After college, Jerry became an editor for a magazine about engineering. For many years, during his lunch hour, he wrote books for adults. None of them were published. Jerry's first book for children was published when he was 41 years old.

He now lives in Phoenixville, PA with his wife, Eileen Spinelli, who is also an author of children's books. They have six children — five from Eileen before they married, and one of their own.
