A short story from the acclaimed collection Funny Business, edited by Jon Scieszka
Ernest is annoying. Ernest is awkward. Ernest is … Ernest. And Dean wants nothing to do with him, until Ernest wins the most spectacular trip in the history of America—and is allowed to bring one friend.
Jon Scieszka’s Guys Read initiative was founded on a simple premise: young guys enjoy reading most when they have reading they can enjoy. Out of this comes a series that aims to give them just that. Ten books, arranged by theme, featuring the best of the best where writing for kids is concerned. Each book is a collection of original short stories, but these aren’t your typical anthologies—each book is edgy, inventive, and one-of-a-kind, featuring a different theme for guys to get excited about.
Funny Business is based around the theme of—what else—humor, and if you’re familiar with Jon and Guys Read, you already know that you’re in for some laugh-out-loud moments.
Guys Read is all about turning young readers into lifelong ones—and we aim to leave no guy unturned.
