My first YA novel. Tom Mayo gets sent to wood shop instead of animation, and things go downhill from there. Voted a “Book for the Teen Age” by the New York Public Library.
“Perfectly captures the insecurity and self-consciousness of his age. Often humorous….Easy, engaging reading with a serious side.” (Booklist )
If you’re wondering what the story with the cover is, I wrote some posts on my Tumblr about it a while back.
If you’re interested in some history, I wrote about that here.
