Publisher's Description

Sam's birthday is in twenty-four hours, seven minutes, and four seconds. Here's what he wants: a new bike (because he messed up the old one), more pens (so he can draw doodles), and the best birthday party ever. He'll have to wait for the presents, but the only way he can have the best party ever is if Demo Dan, the world's greatest wrestler, shows up. The only problem is, Sam doesn't exactly know Demo Dan (and he promised his friends Dan would be there—he even made a bet on it!). Now time is running out. Will Demo Dan show up in time for Sam to blow out his candles?

Author Bio

J. Press is an art educator who spends her time writing, teaching, and doodling.

Publishers Weekly

This new chapter book series, aimed at audiences not quite ready for the Wimpy Kid, stars a third grader who’s an indifferent student but a passionate doodler. Sam’s fervent wish is to have Demolition Dan, “the world’s greatest wrestler,” as the main attraction at his birthday party—he’s pretty much promised the kids at school that it’s a done deal. Complicating the picture is a beloved grandfather who likes to stretch the truth (“One time Grandpa told me he baked a cake for a king in Egypt. But then the king died so they had to bury him inside the cake”) and a nemesis, tattletale Max Baxter, whose father is dating Sam’s mother. Kline’s line drawings create a gleefully disorderly atmosphere (at one point, he draws a mustache and beard around Bluebeard the Pirate’s name), but they seldom feel like they’ve sprung from an elementary-schooler’s mind. Press works hard to woo her audience with shout-outs to farts, barf, boogers, and earwax, but the overall vibe is so benevolent that the character and his conflicts never really rev to life. Simultaneously available: Double Trouble. Ages 6–8. (Jan.) 2012 Reed Business Information
