About this title


After his mom becomes the host of a popular television show about science, Wiggie V. Carter becomes a geek by association, but in his attempt to become cool, Wiggie gets himself in some very hot water. Reprint.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6?Wiggie has always done well in school and gotten along with his teachers, but he wasn't always the class nerd. When his mother becomes the host of an educational science TV show and uses the word bowel on the air, however, Wiggie becomes Bowel Boy. Callie, the new girl in class and his only friend, suggests he work on his image. So one day he becomes Ludwig van Beethoven Carter (his real name) in formal attire. Next he tries being Lud (it rhymes with blood), wearing a dog collar and spiking his hair with gel and glitter. That doesn't work either, but when he sneezes on Callie and laughs about it, he is suddenly "in" with the boys. Although Callie is upset, Wiggie tries to enjoy his new popularity. In a satisfying conclusion, he ends up with a broken arm and many friends (including Callie). This realistic contemporary story told from Wiggie's point of view is humorous and fast paced. His search for an image acceptable to the boys with whom he longs to be friends is truthful and understandable. Wiggie's mistakes are genuine, and readers can't help but empathize with him.?Elisabeth Palmer Abarbanel, Los Angeles Public Library
