At four-foot-two, Sammy Carducci may be the shortest kid in the class, but he’s not going to let that stand in his way. Dressing for school in a suit, tie, and sneakers, he dares to be different.
Based on pointers provided by his handsome older brother (and a few insights of his own), Sammy plans to figure out the “scientific principles” of female behavior. What better way to get the girls in the sixth grade to fall for him?
With his trandemark on-target humor, author Ronald Kidd has created the most irresistible, eccentric, one-of-a-kind sixth grader you’ll ever meet.
“A charming, delightful, and well-written novel that will appeal to both sexes.”
Children’s Book Review Service
