Stuey Lewis has conquered second grade, but third grade's no piece of cake, either. Can he figure out how to transport his whole class to outer space, navigate a first airplane trip disaster, celebrate the best Mother's Day ever, and find a cool enough pet for the class's pet show? With a little help from his best friend, Will, and his awesome teacher, Ginger, of course he can!

Praise For Stuey Lewis Against All Odds: Stories from the Third Grade

“With a broad emotional range in both writing and illustrations, this is a cut above most early chapter books.” —Booklist

“The large type and occasional pen-and-ink illustrations make this a great choice for reluctant readers. The unique cast of characters, including a very outspoken classmate named Lilly, creates many of the laughs in this engaging early chapter book.” —School Library Journal

“Stuey is just the right kind of friend--confident and independent--for any third grader.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Schoenberg perfectly captures the humor, and heart, of second grade.” —Claudia Mills, author of 7 x 9 = Trouble! on The One and Only Stuey Lewis

“Kids will love Stuey's daring schemes, laugh hard and long at his missteps, and sympathize with his hidden fears.” —Ann Cameron, author of The Stories Julian Tells, on The One and Only Stuey Lewis

“Stuey's fans will be crossing their fingers for a sequel.” —Kirkus Reviews on The One and Only Stuey Lewis

“Readers will easily recognize analogues to Stuey and his crew in their own lives and welcome more of his adventures.” —Publishers Weekly on The One and Only Stuey Lewis
