Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In a book that mimics Jeff Kinney's Diary of a Wimpy Kid series both in scope and design, seventh-grader Danny is trying to navigate choppy middle-school waters. "I'm about halfway down the food chain," he explains. "Not president of the Mathletes, but no one's saving me a seat at the Cool Table. I can't afford a lot of slippage." After the budding comics artist refuses to hand over his beloved drawing pen to a classmate, she adds his and his friend Jasper's names to the "Loser List" scribbled on the girls' bathroom wall. Danny's attempt to eradicate their names lands him in detention, where he finds an unlikely ally in school bully Axl, which alienates Danny from Jasper, among other complications. The story unfolds in a handwritten-looking font on lined pages amid ample spot illustrations. Danny's cartoons, sidebars, and lists ("Top Three Signs You're Going to Summer School") should enhance the book's appeal for reluctant readers. The design of Kowitt's (The Sweetheart Deal) story ought to attract Wimpy Kid fans, and the book's "be yourself" message makes it a more earnest alternative. Ages 8–12. (Apr.)

    It's what he wanted!

    My newphew wanted for summer reading and was thoroughly involved with it! Great way to spend some time visiting. It kept him occupied without his friend around, a nice change.

    I nkpw i shouldnt judge a book by its cover but....

    On this book i think i have to. I rlly dont want to read a book called the loser list with this funky looking guy on the book cover with a bad haircut looking as if he just nearly survived a epocolispe. By the way: the auther needs to do a better job of drawing people. I can draw a stick figure and it will look more realistic and less sloppy and im only eleven. Sorry for being such a critic. - led zeppeling . P.s. i like to note myself led zeppeling because im a big fan of led zeppelin. One of the workds greates rock bands.
