This chapter book in Newbery Honor–winning and bestselling author Louis Sachar’s Marvin Redpost series offers a sidesplitting take on being the new kid at school.
When Marvin and Stuart sleep over at Nick Tuffle’s house for Nick’s birthday, they set up sleeping bags in the back yard. Stuart and Nick go right to sleep, but Marvin tosses and turns. Then he hears a noise and something glowing zooms over his head. Is it really a flying birthday cake? Or could it be something even more bizarre? The next day, a very strange new kid shows up at school….
Hilarious and relatable, Marvin Redpost is perfect for kids who love to bond with quirky characters like Junie B. Jones and George Brown, Class Clown.
