The Fantastic and Terrible Fame of Classroom 13

By Honest Lee and Matthew J. Gilbert
Illustrated by Joelle Dreidemy

  • Paperback
  • £5.99

For fans of Captain Underpants or Sideways Stories from Wayside School, this new chapter book series is perfect for reluctant readers.

When famous agent Lucy LaRoux drops by Classroom 13, she makes an offer no one can refuse--she makes all of the students FAMOUS.

You might think this was sweet, but it was not. It was selfish. (Lucy wants their money.) With great fame comes frightening stage fright, broken bones, rotten reality television, and other awful accidents. As the students of Classroom 13 are about to learn, being famous (or infamous) isn't always fun.

What do YOU want to be famous for? The final chapter of each book encourages young readers to write their OWN chapter and send it in to the author, Honest Lee.

The Fantastic and Terrible Fame of Classroom 13 is the third title in a new chapter book series of hilarious stories about a very unlucky classroom. Each story is full of humor, action, and fun that will prompt hours of conversation among friends, families, and classrooms.

Biographical Notes

Honest Lee is a liar! You can't trust a thing he writes. He insists that his stories are true. And they're totally not! Then again, I could be Honest Lee, which would mean I'm lying and my stories are true. What's the truth? I have no idea. Honestly.

Matthew J. Gilbert is one of many Matthew Gilberts. Seriously. There's like a trillion of them. This particular Matthew Gilbert writes stories and has a nearly perfect mustache. When he's not writing about Classroom 13, he's watching monster movies, eating tacos, and singing made-up songs about his cats.

Joelle Dreidemy spent her childhood in the countryside among cows and books, and has been drawing since she learned to walk. She lives in France, where she makes art for books, magazines, greeting cards, and more. When she's not illustrating, she sings and plays guitar in a rock band.

Courage for Beginners

Karen Harrington
Authors:
Karen Harrington

12-year-old Mysti Murphy wishes she was a character in a book. If her life was fictional, she'd magically know how to deal with the fact that her best friend, Anibal Gomez, no longer wants to talk to her during school hours. She'd be able to take care of her family when her dad has to spend time in the hospital. And she'd certainly be able to change the secret fact about her family: her mother is agoraphobic and never leaves the house.School used to be the only escape for Mysti, but now that Anibal is trying to make friends with the popular crowd, Mysti is left alone at 'Loser Island' - the cafeteria table with misfits. At first Mysti can't stand the other kids there: know-it-all Wayne Kovok and standoffish new girl Rama Khan. But as Anibal changes for the worse, Mysti realises being a 'secret friend' is no kind of friend at all - and Rama and Wayne might understand her better than she thought.Ultimately, Mysti begins to see that her mother is afraid of everything, but Mysti can be brave in little ways even if she's not a character in a book: by standing up to Anibal when he's bullying her, by walking to the grocery store on her own when her mother can't leave the house, or by visiting her father at the hospital. And bit by bit, Mysti realises she's not alone after all.

Ask the Passengers

A.S. King
Authors:
A.S. King

Astrid Jones copes with her small town's gossip and narrow-mindedness by sending love to the passengers in the airplanes flying overhead. Maybe they'll know what to do with it. Maybe it'll make them happy. Maybe they'll need it. Her mother doesn't want it, her father's always stoned, her perfect sister's too busy trying to fit in and the people in her small town would never allow her to love the person she really wants to - another girl named Dee. There's no one Astrid feels she can talk to about this deep secret or the profound questions that she's trying to answer but little does she know just how much sending her love - and asking the right questions - will affect the passengers' lives, and her own, for the better.In this unmistakably original portrayal of a girl struggling to break free of society's boxes and definitions, Printz Honor author A.S. King asks readers to question everything - and offers hope to those who will never stop seeking and sharing real love.
