Holling Hoodhood is not excited about seventh grade. He has to spend a whole class period alone every day with his teacher, avoid Doug Swieteck's big older brother, and try to live up to his father's expectations. Sounds miserable, right? But Gary D. Schmidt saturates this story with silliness. And Joel Johnstone makes a good book even better with his excellent reading of this audio version. This is far and away my favorite audio book of the year.
