Description

"Beasley follows her acclaimed debut, Gertie's Leap to Greatness (2016), with a winning story that matches earnestness with humor... transformative read."--Booklist starred review

"Beasley (Gertie's Leap to Greatness) writes with ease, engaging readers quickly with hapless but hopeful Frederick's sincerity. His struggles with popularity and self-confidence make him a relatable, realistic protagonist readers would want for a friend...straightforward message about self-acceptance and true friendship will leave readers smiling. --School Library Journal

"Beasley's sophomore novel...is chock full of zany, nicknamed characters (Frederick shares a cabin with Nosebleed, Ant Bite, Specs, and the Professor) coming together in a story of friendship among boys...A fun coming-of-age romp." --Kirkus

"Ms. Beasley does something admirable with her food-chain metaphor: A bit like Chekhov's gun, the metaphorical lion from the first act turns into a real one at the end, adding a moment of unexpected bite. Otherwise tender at heart and laugh-out-loud entertaining, the tale of Frederick's misadventures and Dan Santat's exuberant illustrations will charm readers ages 8-12." - The Wall Street Journal
