Oggie Cooder has never set foot (or swim fin) in his neighbor Donnica Perfecto's swimming pool. But now he has his chance - it's Donnica's birthday, and her mom has forced her to invite Oggie to the pool party! Donnica, though, isn't about to let this happen. She has a plan to keep Oggie away. But what she doesn't count on is the power of Oggie's charving, an unexpected visit from a local rock band, a creative use of a cherry picker, a dog that tweets like a bird, and a boy in a bear suit whose identity will change everything when it's revealed.
Once again, Sarah Weeks has created a funny hero who won't let anything - not wimpiness, not adversity, not haiku contests - stand in his way.
Sarah Weeks is the author of Oggie Cooder, So B. It, Jumping the Scratch, and the Guy series. She lives in New York, where she writes and bakes. Her favorite pie is blueberry.
