Attack of the Girlzillas (The Barftastic Life of Louie Burger #3)
For Louie Burger, things are going great in the fifth grade. He has two awesome best friends, Nick and Thermos, he's pretty much conquered his stage fright, and even mean ol' Ryan Rakefield isn't giving him as much flak. Yep, things are going pretty well.
That is—until his dad has to go away for two weeks for a job and he is stuck with a house full of girls. Suddenly, it's makeup, princess dogs, love notes from your kissy-faced grandma, and heart-shaped pancakes all the time. How can Louie be the man of the house when it is constantly under attack by girlzillas?
Jenny Meyerhoff's funny and sweet novel is packed with boy humor, a great school setting, and over fifty pieces of line art from the talented Jason Week. This is the third book in the series.

About the Author
As a child in West Bloomfield, Michigan, Jenny Meyerhoff often read a book a night. In third grade, she read Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret twenty-one times. Her first attempt at a children’s book, The Leprechaun Who Never Found a Pot of Gold, was written when she was in first grade. From that moment on, Jenny has dreamed of becoming a professional children’s book writer.
Jenny studied creative writing at the University of Michigan, and received her master’s degree in education at Northwestern University. She then became a kindergarten teacher because, in addition to loving children’s books, Jenny enjoys sitting on the floor. (That’s also why she practices yoga.)
Jenny is now a full-time writer and a full-time mom, which means that she never sleeps. She lives in Riverwoods, Illinois, with her husband and three children.
Jason Week was born and raised in a smallish central Wisconsin town. He is the illustrator of Jenny Meyerhoff's The Barftastic Life of Louie Burger series. He currently lives outside of Chicago with his beautiful, brilliant wife.
