When Danny gets caught trying to cross his name off the “Geek” list in the girls’ bathroom, he’s sent to detention. Bullies torment him mercilessly — until they discover that Danny can draw. He enjoys his new “bad boy” status, supplying tattoos and graffiti, until he’s unknowingly drawn into a theft. Turns out the bullies took a comic book from Danny’s favorite store. Can he steal it back before they get caught — and break off with the bullies before he gets in too deep?
I loved it it was amazing book similar to diary of a wimpy kid.
I totally missed this one Elliott – thanks! If you like reading about Danny and Greg Heffley from Diary of a Wimpy Kid (and while you are waiting for Diary of a Wimpy Kid #6 Cabin Fever to come out…November, 2011) try one of these:
I knew that Big Nate actually started as a comic strip but I had never read it. Big Nate Out Loud is a compilation of several Big Nate comic strips – he is just as funny one strip at a time. Nate even tries to change school to make it more interesting: ”
Mr. Gavin, this worksheet on photosynthesis really isn’t working for me….We want to stop studying photosynthesis and start studying something GOOD!” (pages 57-58)
When that doesn’t work he tries to get Mr. Gavin to laugh. He cracks jokes, even science jokes, but nothing works until one of Nate’s classmates says,
“Mr. Gavin, Nate thinks he has a good chance to make the honor roll this term. What do YOU think?” (page 62)
That works! Apparently Nate is not exactly honor roll material! He’s too busy trying to impress Jenny to concentrate on his school work. He also likes complaining and pranks and asking a lot of questions to keep the teacher off topic. If you think about it you’ve probably got someone in your class like Nate already…or maybe that someone is YOU!
The author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series announced today the release date and cover for the 6th Wimpy Kid book. The book will come out November 15, 2011 and it will be called Cabin Fever. Greg’s family gets snowed in – all those Heffleys in one small house.
Amelia and her friends really do rule. Even though these are comic books the characters are not unrealistic but they sure are funny. I laughed outloud reading Amelia and The Gym Class System. It tells the story of Amelia’s first day at her new school.
SO THERE I AM, SURROUNDED BY WEIRDOS AND ALREADY SENT TO THE PRINCIPAL! I DIDN’T THINK THINGS COULD GET WORSE. THEN WE HAD GYM CLASS. (page 13)
Things DO get worse…Amelia goes to the principal’s office so many times he says, “I don’t believe I see my wife this often!” Author: Jimmy Gownley
Missile Mouse is still one tough mouse. He’s quick thinking, he’s smart, he takes some risks and lives to tell about it. He’s also got a bit of a temper. Sometimes he chooses not to follow the rules at the Galactic Security Agency and sometimes this gets him into trouble. He saves the day, for sure, but he can’t seem to do it without stomping off to fight a battle his own way or blowing stuff up.
In this second adventure Missile Mouse rescues the alien driver of a transport ship with suspicious cargo. The driver, Lasukus, from the planet Tankium3, has no memory – a device has been planted in his brain to control him. When the device is removed Lasukus teams up with Missile Mouse and Agent 44, a security bot, to rescue Tankium3′s men from an evil overlord as well as the assasin he has hired…none other than Missile Mouse’s arch nemesis, Blazing Bat. Just like in book one, good guys, bad guys, betrayals, aliens, spaceships, explosions…it’s all in here. Author: Jake Parker
