Available

Description

The hilarious chapter book series about an accidental rule breaker from Katherine Applegate--Newbery Medal winning and bestselling author of The One and Only Ivan, Crenshaw, and Wishtree--returns with a fresh new look from artist Brian Biggs and bonus material! This chapter book is an excellent choice to share during homeschooling, in particular for children ages 5 to 7 who are ready to read independently. It's a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.

When his classmates can't sit still for a big performance at school, Roscoe Riley takes matters into his own hands with a liberal dose of Super-Mega-Gonzo Glue--which his mom calls the don't-you-dare glue because Roscoe isn't supposed to use it.

Roscoe doesn't mean to break the rules--he just can't help himself! After all, his teacher's job might be at stake and desperate times call for desperate measures.

Roscoe and his comical misadventures will appeal to fans of Megan McDonald's Stink series; Nancy Krulik's George Brown, Class Clown series; Rebecca Elliott's Owl Diaries series; and Dan Gutman's My Weirder School series. This repackaged edition includes Roscoe Riley's Time-Out Activities, featuring lists, games, and more.
