About the Author:

Louise Hawes has published novels for both middle-grade and young adult readers. She teaches in the nations first MFA Program in Writing for Children at Vermont College. She devoutly hopes no one can find a moral in any of her stories!

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4 The unexpected intrudes into 11-year-old Nelson Malone's life in each of these 6 stories. Nelson wants something more exciting than a hermit crab for the pet showand he gets a witch's familiar. Tinkering with his pocket calculator and a doll, Nelson creates an erratic homework machine. Summer camp is run by aliens from another planet. A video game about dental health almost swallows Nelson. Encounters with magic sneakers and mushroom-filled candy complete the lighthearted but forgettable stories. Nelson is a bit like Peter from Judy Blume's Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (Dutton, 1972) and a bit like Simon's Einstein Anderson (Viking). The stories are essentially comedy with the fantasy elements reduced to one-line jokes. They are enjoyable as long as readers consume them as they would Mush-Nut candy bars, without pausing to think about the filling. Carolyn Caywood, Virginia Beach Public Lib .
