If your kids have ever been bullied, this might be the most important novel they read all year
If you have kids in the 3rd - 5th grade, do them a HUGE favor and share with them this hysterical new novel, "The Cootie Kisser Convention on Canterbury Court."
A word of warning, however: Although bullying is a very serious topic indeed, in this book it's dealt with in such a hysterical way that your kids might just laugh hard enough that whatever they are eating will come out their nose.
Enjoy the Battle
Come join these crazy characters as they engage in the ultimate battle of the sexes... fourth-grade style:
Eddy Coletrane--a shaggy-haired baseball pitcher with a sense of humor as wicked as his curveball.
Brian Dobson--a skinny, hyper boy who has three dresser drawers filled with every type of prank imaginable.
Charlie Devries--a shy, sloppy boy with a severe crew cut and a fondness for candy and comic books.
Darla Delaney--a confident tomboy who moves to Canterbury Court, only to discover that the boys won't play with her--and that the girls won't even talk to her.
Stuart Leroy--the meanest bully ever to attend Roosevelt Elementary School. His favorite hobby is beating up anybody who is more defenseless than he is--which means everybody
Veronica Novotny--a button-nosed blonde who leads the fearless Cootie Kissing Eleven with the passion of a drill sergeant.
From the back cover:
""Eddy Coletrane and his two best friends, Charlie and Brian, are horrified when they learn that a GIRL is moving to Canterbury Court. But when they're forced to fight Stuart Leroy, the most terrifying bully ever to attend Roosevelt Elementary School, they quickly learn that they were wrong to feel that way.""
This book is perfect for boys and girls in 3rd - 5th grade and older... but don't be surprised if it makes you snort with laughter as well.
