Paulie Pastrami can't whistle, he has trouble matching his socks, and he is usually picked last in sports. But he plans to achieve world peace before he turns eight.
Through simple acts of kindness--from reading to the trees and being nice to his little sister to cheering up the school principal and sharing cupcakes with strangers--Paulie learns that spreading peace isn't that hard after all.
James Proimos has written and illustrated many books for children, including Patricia Von Pleasantsquirrel and the Johnny Mutton series. He has also created TV shows and written scripts for major animation studios.
