Product Details


Written in four accessible chapters, this book is perfect for the newly independent reader and makes a fine bridge from Amelia Bedelia to Ramona. Limited but lively vocabulary, a large font, and carefully placed illustrations—all in a humorous, high-interest package—will make this a hit.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

This beginning chapter book is a lot of fun. … The cartoon illustrations in watercolor and Prismacolor pencils are full of action and humor. This is an engaging choice for students who are beyond the easy-to-reads and not quite ready for longer chapter books.
—School Library Journal

Fans of the earlier … series installments will be pleased to revisit its characters. Onward Joe and Sparky!
—Kirkus Reviews

In the third chapter book to star this unlikely duo, Michalak will have readers giggling over the silly exchanges and comedic misunderstandings that follow as Sparky and Joe attempt to fit in at school. … The vibrant watercolor and colored pencil cartoons and well-targeted humor … will entertain growing readers.
