Praise For Funny Business

Utterly dude worthy.
-Kirkus

A must-have collection for the boys in your library—and while you’re at it, get a copy for the girls, too!

Future volumes will cover such genres as nonfiction, science fiction, mystery, and sports. If they’re as good as this one, boys--and girls--are in for a treat.
