Overview

At thirteen, George Stable still hasn't made his mark on the world. Oh, he plays the guitar and sings a little. And he appeared on television for six whole seconds once. A couple of years ago, he even wrote a sort of book, called The Teddy Bear Habit. But nothing really exciting has happened to him. But now, it looks as if his big chance has finally come. This agent of his, Woody Woodward, who discovered him during his six-second TV career, has come up with a plan to make him a hot new guitar-playing teenage star--"George Stable, The Boy Next Door." Never mind that George has spent his entire life in Greenwich Village, which is not exactly where you'd find your typical "Boy Next Door." As Woody says, it's the image that counts. Of course, there are a few problems to be ironed out. His pop isn't too hot on the idea, and is packing George off to stay with his uncle and creepy cousin Sinclair in upstate New York, while he spends a month in Paris. And Woody's bosses at the record company still have to buy the idea. There's this strange, bug-eyed guy everyone calls Superman who has to give the go-ahead…

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
School is out for the summer in New York City and everyone has great plans, except for George whose Dad and female friend are going to Europe. George is stuck staying with his creepy cousin Sinclair, the nerd. Sinclair's idea of a good time is to build a computer in his barn. Sinclair is a genius, but George is going to be rich and famous one day. He has already been on television in a commercial. That is where his agent Woody first saw him. Woody is going to help George become famous as a clean-cut country singer from small town, USA. Woody has set up a special meeting with a man in charge of a very important record company. His name is Superman and he knows everyone who is important in the business. George needs to develop a plan to get away from Sinclair's house and sneak back into the city when he gets called for his meeting with Superman. George's plan fools everyone for a while, until he meets with Superman. Superman asks George to deliver a special package for him, but George is suspicious. Young readers will enjoy this page-turner that is full of surprises and interesting characters. First published in 1975 and now reissued as a "Lost Treasure" book, George's adventures will humor even the most reluctant reader. 2001, Hyperion and Volo Books, $1.99. Ages 9 to 12.
