Hokey Pokey

Hokey Pokey

Ever since they were Snotsippers, Jack and the girl have fought, until one day she steals his bike and as he and the Amigos try to recover it, Jack realizes that he is growing up and must eventually leave the “goodlands and badlands of Hokey Pokey.”

“Readers who love the classic  Peter  Pan, will be fascinated by Newbery Medalist, Jerry Spinelli’s  latest book, Hokey Pokey. 

Only children live in Hokey Pokey.  Here Newbies, Snotsippers,  Gapper  Gums and Big kids spend endless days playing at what they like most. There’s the Doll Farm, Trucks, Playground,  watching  cartoons on the Big Screen  and riding bikes.   Jack, the oldest, smartest, and fastest bike rider is their leader.  He can answer any question, settle disputes and rescue the helpless.  One day Jack’s beloved bike, Scramjet  is stolen and something is different.  He discovers an unexpected outcome. “
