Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Alex 'Skinnybones' Frankovitch is back, this time starring in a TV commercial after sending a prizewinning letter to a cat food company. Alex is signing autographs in preparation for his newfound celebrity, but things don't work out the way he hoped. Onscreen, he plays a six-year-old running away from home--quite an insult for a 12-year-old. Alex has one more chance at fame when he wins a role in "A Christmas Carol, but it's as Tiny Tim, not Scrooge as Alex would have liked. As always, Park is laugh-out-loud funny and kids will have a wonderful time with this story."--"Booklist.

Synopsis:

About the Author

Barbara Park is one of today's funniest and best-loved writers for middle graders. Her novels, which include Dear God, HELP!!! Love Earl; Skinnybones; The Kid in the Red Jacket; and Mick Harte Was Here, have won numerous children's book awards. Barbara thinks that the wonderful thing about writing humor is that she is able to deal with serious issues in a more lighthearted way. Barbara's fans always want to know whether or not her characters are based on her own children (she has two sons) — in fact, they are not. But having her sons has made it easier for her to know how kids talk and think. What matters most to Barbara is that her books are bringing a few smiles to her readers.

Barbara lives in Paradise Valley, Arizona, with her husband, Richard. She holds a B.S. from the University of Alabama.
