ABOUT THIS BOOK

“Melonhead and his friends inhabit a world . . . where inventiveness and camaraderie reign supreme.” —Kirkus Reviews
 
For fans of Judy Blume's Fudge titles as well as Carl Hiaasen's Hoot.
Money. That’s what Melonhead and his best friend, Sam, need. Due to a “situation,” the boys have to pay for something they accidentally ruined. Neither of them receives an allowance, so they create the We-Fix-It Company. When jobs start pouring in, the boys feel like they have all the answers. But they soon run into a problem too big for just the two of them to handle. Luckily, their friends offer to help. With teamwork and the courage to dream big, the kids surprise even themselves and deliver amazing results.
