Product Details


Kirkus Reviews:
“Readers will be happy to learn that Cotler’s debut is the first in a new series. Cheesie chattily narrates his own story; his voice rings true, and the other characters are a gently quirky, appealing lot.”

Publishers Weekly:
“Fifth-grader Ronald ‘Cheesie’ Mack’s problems (like how to outsmart his evil older sister June, aka ‘Goon’) may be ordinary, but in the hands of first-time author Cotler they’re plenty entertaining.”

“Cheesie and his book are basic, good old-fashioned fun.”

The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books:
“A lighthearted and fast-moving read for kids looking for middle-school shenanigans.”

The Horn Book Magazine:
“The pleasures are in meeting a new friend–and in the promise of a sequel to this debut novel.”
