Grade Level:2-3 Age Level:7-8 Listening Level: Grades 2-3 Oggie Cooder’s charving has already taken him to the top of the world. (Charving, in case you don’t know, involves chewing and carving pieces of cheese.) But there’s one place Oggie Cooder has never been allowed to go: Donnica Perfecto’s pool. This year might be different. Donnica’s mother has made her invite Oggie to a pool party. And Oggie couldn’t be more excited. Not only will he finally make it into the pool, but there’s also going to be mini hot dogs and a juggling bear. The only problem? Donnica Perfecto does not want Oggie Cooder at her party. And she will do anything to stop him from coming!

Born in Ann Arbor Michigan, Sarah Weeks tried to become a champion charver in order to write this story, but she found that she wasn’t quite as good at it as Oggie Cooder. Luckily she does not depend on her charving skills to make a living. Instead, she writes widely acclaimed books, including So B. It, the Guy series (Regular Guy; Guy Time; My Guy; and Guy Wire), and the Boyds Will Be Boyds series (Beware of Mad Dog; Get Well Soon, Or Else!; Danger! Boys Dancing; and Fink’s Funk). She lives in New York City, and can be found on the Web at www.sarahweeks.com.From Booklist:
In this sequel to Oggie Cooder (2008), geeky-but-likable Oggie is thrilled when his cool-but-mean classmate Donnica invites him (at her mother’s insistence) to her birthday party. Donnica plots deceptive ways to keep him from attending, while inventive Oggie and his more perceptive friend Amy think up practical and creative ways to get around the obstacles set up by his ungracious hostess. A fourth-grade haiku lesson works surprisingly well to reveal character and move the story along. Full-page, stylized drawings with gray washes help define the characters and underscore the humor of this accessible chapter book in the Oggie Cooder series. Grades 2-5. --Carolyn Phelan
