A fast, fun, friendship read from the Newbery-award winning author of Maniac Magee.
Fourth graders are tough. They aren’t afraid of spiders. They say no to their moms. They push first graders off the swings. And they never, ever cry. Suds knows that now that he’s in fourth grade, he’s supposed to be a rat. But whenever he tries to act like one, something goes wrong. Can Suds’s friend Joey teach him to toughen up…or will Suds remain a fourth grade wimp?
Rapid-fire dialogue and a hilarious string of episodes unfold a story with a valuable message about peer pressure and the importance of being oneself. – From Booklist
