The Canal Street Kids bring new meaning to "gross," as they compete for the prize of being movie extras with a surefire school-fair attraction.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. When a book's first sentence alludes to the fact Emily Anderson has saved her father's toe in a matchbox, readers know they're in the zone of great, gross grade-school humor. Emily and the other four members of the Canal Street Club aim to win the prize for highest sales (highest gross, might one say?) at the school fair by exhibiting the toe, and, in the bargain, defeat their arch rivals, the cutesy and oppressive Bunny Bigalow and Violetta Epstein. After the predictable zany chaos at the fair, outrageous humor rules even longer, when Emily's father requests proper disposition of his former toe and a barbecue-grill cremation is arranged. These eight chapters don't demand extensive reading skills, yet they deliver big laughs. Mary Harris Veeder

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-4-There's nothing like a great first line to hook readers: "The Canal Street Club wouldn't have caused so much trouble if Emily Anderson hadn't saved her father's toe in a matchbox." The severed toe, secret oaths, a competition, and a disaster are the intriguing ingredients of The World's Greatest Toe Show, in which five children try to win the grand prize at the school fair. Sims's characteristically appealing pencil illustrations break up the text and add to the humor in this funny, first chapter book.
