Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Cody decides to cope with his first day in a new school by being "Super Cody," someone the other kids will admire. He spins so many lies that he just wants to hide rather than being found out. He finally 'fesses up after a hilarious episode unmasks him. Cody's angst is relayed with gentle humor.
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4-Because he's dreading being the new kid in school, Cody, a quirky, wise-cracking third grader, transforms himself into Super Cody. Nothing is ordinary in his life; he tells everyone he's a world-class skater, that he has a pet emu, and that his father is an FBI agent. But rather than making the transition smoother, his new image only causes embarrassment. He is invited to Holly's skating party, and since he's never really skated, he succeeds in rolling into the girl's bathroom and exiting as a toilet-paper mummy. But thanks to a supportive mother, an understanding teacher, a few kids willing to give him a chance, and a science project, he makes friends. Duffey's characters display a wide variety of realistic emotions, and students will readily identify with them.-Christina Dorr, Calcium Primary School, NY

    read and take a lesson

    This book was excellent. A really clever way of showing kids to just be yourself. When you mislead people and they find out who you are you usally just make a fool of yourself. Just be the person that you are and people will like you even if you aren't super at everything.
