Middle school is off to a rocky start for Marvin Watson. Doomed to misfit status, his only friends are a girl with major orthodontics, the smelliest boy in school, and the trio of sarcastic man-sized moths that live in his attic.

No one said middle school would be easy! Also, no one said that Marvin’s town would be threatened by mutant bugs, including a very hungry, Shakespeare-quoting spider. But life in the suburbs is full of surprises. Will Marvin be the one to unravel the mystery behind the mutants and save the town? Or will he be too busy with the real threat: his first school dance?

This hilarious send-up of middle school has the humor of James Patterson’s I Funny, the underdog hero of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and the zany action of NERDS.

Plus: talking moths.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The narrator of the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Ramón de Ocampo, applies his hallmark enthusiasm to Marvin Watson’s introduction to middle school…Listeners will cringe and laugh out loud in equal measure as Marvin is subjected to the horrors of middle school…When Marvin teams up with Fatima and Lee for a science presentation, listeners will be breathless from laughter. De Ocampo’s best creations are the giant moths who’ve taken up residence in Marvin’s attic—they watch baseball—and the Shakespeare-quoting spider that is stalking the town. This production is truly a tour de force. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
