9780060555023: Yo-yo Man

It is the first day of school. The first day of third grade. Between Mrs. Mousetrap's miserable spelling tests and the arm-twisting antics of smelly, candy-sucking Richard Newton, it's already looking ugly.

Then comes recess—and Ramon: The World Yo-yo Champion appears with his awesome King Tut Royal Egyptian Yo-yo. Even Richard Newton is in awe.

With bobbing, humming, sparkling speed, Daniel Pinkwater and Jack E. Davis draw us into a dizzyingly satisfying tale of yo-yo success.

About the Author:

Daniel Pinkwater has created many weird and whimsical children's stories that play on the absurdity of reality, among them The Hoboken Chicken's Emergency, Miss Nelson Is Coming, and The Picture of Morty and Ray.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Third grade starts badly for this young protagonist: the class bully is targeting him and Mrs. Mousetrap gives spelling and math tests right away. But at recess, Ramon, the World Yo-Yo Champion, appears in all his mustachioed glory with slick-backed hair, two-toned wingtips, and a lightning-decorated jacket. His dazzling fingerwork and challenge to the kids to learn all the tricks in his book inspire yo-yo mania at school. The bully is hopeless, but the narrator applies himself to the yo-yo and to spelling. With practice and perseverance, he conquers both and becomes the best speller in third grade and a "yo-yo man" himself. The text employs plenty of playful language while the illustrations, featuring Davis's slightly homely characters, are colorful and jam-packed with detail, energy, and expression. Unlike many Pinkwater tales, there is no surprise twist—just a satisfying story of a potential loser who learns how to win. As a read-aloud or a read-alone, this story will resonate with children.—Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI
