"Alex 'Skinnybones' Frankovitch is back, this time starring in a TV commercial after sending a prizewinning letter to a cat food company. Alex is signing autographs in preparation for his newfound celebrity, but things don't work out the way he hoped. Onscreen, he plays a six-year-old running away from home--quite an insult for a 12-year-old. Alex has one more chance at fame when he wins a role in "A Christmas Carol," but it's as Tiny Tim, not Scrooge as Alex would have liked. As always, Park is laugh-out-loud funny and kids will have a wonderful time with this story."-- "Booklist. "

Author Information

BARBARA PARK is best known as the author of the wildly popular "New York Times" bestselling Junie B. Jones series, which has kept kids (and their grown-ups) laughing and reading for over two decades. Beloved by millions, the Junie B. Jones books have been translated into multiple languages and are a time-honored staple in elementary school classrooms around the world. Every bit as funny as her best-known character, Barbara once said, There are those who believe that the value of a children s book can be measured only in terms of the moral lessons it tries to impose or the perfect role models it offers. Personally, I happen to think that a book is of extraordinary value if it gives the reader nothing more than a smile or two. In fact, I happen to think that s huge. Barbara Park is also the author of award-winning middle grade novels and bestselling picture books, including "Skinnybones, Mick Harte Was Here, " and "The Kid in the Red Jacket. " Barbara Park was born in New Jersey in 1947 and spent most of her adult life in Arizona, where she and her husband, Richard, raised two sons. Barbara died in 2013, but her legacy lives on in the laughter her books give to readers all over the world."
