The New Kid

By: Mavis Jukes

BOOK TALK

 

Being the new kid is never easy. Being the new kid when you have to move away from the grandparents you love is even harder.  Being the new kid whose lunch goes missing and who attracts the attention of the classroom trouble-maker is the worst of all.  Carson likes lots of things about his new school:  Mr. Nibblenose, the classroom rat; Mrs. Crabbly, the crazy computer teacher; and Mr. Lipman, his friendly homeroom teacher.  What he doesn’t like, though, is Wes inviting him to his birthday party, only for Carson to show up and no one is there.  He also doesn’t like when his favorite stuffed animal, Moose, goes missing on Stuffed Animal Day.  Will things get better for Carson, or will he ask his dad if they can move back?
