About this title


Middle school student and aspiring author Booker Jones is evicted from his bedroom when his grandfather moves in, creating problems both at home and at school

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-Booker Jones, 12, aspiring author, has just completed his 22nd manuscript, Space Cows. He hopes to follow in his journalist grandfather's footsteps. But ever since Pop broke his hip and moved into Booker's room, he's been uncommunicative. The boy loses himself in his writing, trying to forget about his family problems and his failure to conquer long division. When the PTO organizes a rally to change the school mascot from the Wolf Pack to the Fighting Pickles, Booker is asked to give a convincing speech to prevent the change. For once, though, he suffers from writer's block. At the same time, he comes to realize that Pop will be staying with them permanently. On his way to the rally he has an inspiration; his speech is a rousing tongue-in-cheek success and is published in the local newspaper. Booker shares the joy of being published (finally!) with Pop; the elderly man only blinks in response, yet he is clearly pleased. This lighthearted story is well paced. Characterizations are well established considering the novel's brevity. Without even speaking, Pop is a dominant secondary character-the person from whom Booker draws his strength. Similar in plot to Betsy Byars's The Two-Thousand-Pound Goldfish (HarperCollins, 1982), this quick read would also make a good classroom read-aloud.
