Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties—that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. But now that he’s turning ten—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a "House of Horrors" theme. Of course things don’t work out as he plans. In trying to make friends, he ends up inviting the class bully Cougar to come, and that’s before he ruins the cake and sets the garage on fire. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh . . . becomes the big OH-NO!?
From start to finish, The Big One-Oh is a laugh-out-loud riot, and any reader will relate to the pressures Charley faces both at school and at home in planning his special day. So dive into The Big One-Oh and join the party today!

Dean Pitchford wrote the lyrics for the hit movie Fame, for which he won an Oscar, as well as the lyrics and screenplay for Footloose. The Big One-Oh is his first novel. He lives in Los Angeles, California.From AudioFile:
Author Dean Pitchford shows he's a kid at heart as he narrates his own comic tale. Nine-year-old Charley Maplewood thinks he's a deprived child because he's never had a birthday party. Charley plans to remedy the situation by hosting a house-of-horrors celebration for his big ³one-oh.² Dean Pitchford is perfectly convincing as a 9-year-old. Pitchford hams up the unfairness of school with a boyish voice, and he even whoops and hollers during the scary parts. With fake body parts and squishy eyeballs, Pitchford swaggers through a hyperbolic tale of birthday mayhem. One might accuse him of overacting except that his pleasure in the story is so contagious. Fresh and loud, this audio performance aims at thrill-seeking listeners and hits its mark. C.A. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
