About the Author
Praise For The Adventures of Beanboy…
"With a full comic adventure that includes a farting superhero, this is an excellent reccomendation for kids transitioning between graphic novels and traditional books."--Kirkus"Tucker's rapport with his brother, concern for his mother, and frustration with his absent father (who now 'only existed in e-mails') add emotional depth to Harkrader's believable portrait of school and family life."--Publishers Weekly "Harkrader has created superb characters...Fans of Dav Pilkey's 'Captain Underpants' (Scholastic) or Jeff Kinney's 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' (Abrams) books will embrace Tucker and his winsome, quirky friends and schoolmates."--School Library Journal, starred review "[Harkrader] offers another knowing, funny, and sometimes moving look at middle-school issues."--Booklist
