"Equal parts screwball comedy, coming-of-age story, and tearjerker-I loved, loved, loved it!" Varian Johnson, author of The Parker InheritanceWith a madcap sense of humor and a lot of heart (not to mention other body parts), The Mortification of Fovea Munson is Young Frankenstein for today's middle grade audience!
