Description

Arty may be shorter--much shorter--than your average teen, but that doesn't mean his problems are small. If anything, they're huge. Whether he is dodging the fists of his hulking twin brother, dealing with the other misfits in his school, or falling in love for the first time, Arty lives his life looking up--and gives readers unusual perspective on becoming a man.
     This acclaimed debut novel is hilarious, offbeat, surprisingly moving, and sure to appeal to teens of all sizes.

Praise For Funny Little Monkey

[star]"Darkly comic . . . The author taps into the painful experience of high school,
leavened with healthy doses of hyperbole, hope and wry humor--which Auseon seems to understand just may be the best tools
for teenage survival."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Strikingly clever."--Booklist
