About this title

Synopsis:

An uproarious companion to Heads or Tails and Jack's New Power

According to his new motto - A WRITER'S JOB IS TO TURN HIS WORST EXPERIENCES INTO MONEY - Jack Henry is going to be filty rich even before he gets out of junior high, for his life is filled with the worst experiences imaginable. In the course of the few months covered in this cycle of interlinked stories, Jack is humiliated by a gorgeous syncronized swimmer, gets a tattoo the size of an ant on his big toe, flubs an IQ test and nearly fails wood shop, and has to dig up his dead dog not once but twice. And that's not the half of it. But, as The School Library Journal put it, Jack's "a survivor, an 'everyboy' whose world may be wacko but whose heart and spirit are eminently sane." Jack may not end up rolling in dough, but he, along with his humorously off-kilter familly, always keeps on trying.

About the Author:

Jack Gantos is the author of three other books featuring Jack Henry (see pages 42--43) and, most recently, of Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, a National Book Award finalist. He lives in Boston, Massachusetts, with his wife and daughter.
