From the author of So B. It, a super charming middle-grade Napoleon Dynamite with heart — the tale of a very average boy who's put in his school's spotlight when his averageness appeals to a TV show.
Fourth-grader Oggie Cooder has a talent — he can charve better than anyone else in Truman Elementary School. (Charving, for the uninitiated, is the carving of a piece of cheese with one's teeth.) Oggie doesn't think this is anything special — but his whole school will soon be disagreeing with him. Because after he inadvertantly charves during a nationwide hunt for unusual talents, his charving puts him on the path to fame and forture. Suddenly, he's the star of the school . . . but he's not sure that he wants to shine that way.
This is Sarah Weeks at her best — funny, clever, and kid-friendly.
