Tucker Grizzwell’s Worst Week Ever
By Bill Schorr, Ralph Smith
And before he can even get to the weekend, Tucker must endure a week's worth of middle school indignities, including pop quizzes, too much homework, bad cafeteria food, friends who are not the brightest lighthouses on the coast, an older sister who ignores him in the hallways, and one very unfortunate bus ride. The graphic novel format is perfect for the showcasing the daily trials and tribulations of this middle school grizzly cub.
