All Scab needs to do is get permission to go back out on Beeson's Lake with another fishing rod (and some special handcrafted dinosaur spying inventions, of course!) and he'll be able to find proof.

Quotes

  • “Scab McNally is back in this laugh-out-loud volume. With high energy and ingenious ideas, the ten-year-old skates (just barely!) through one sticky situation after another.”

    - School Library Journal
  • “[Scab’s] fast-paced first-person narration features punchy one-liners and revels in revolting gags to propel the unlikely events, though nuanced characterization reveals some complexity as Scab struggles for his peers’ acceptance. His flippant, comic voice resonates in his frequent journal lists…Another chuckle-inducing helping.”

    " This was a mildly entertaining of a boy who often gets into trouble and who thinks that he nearly hooks a dinosaur while out fishing with his dog and two friends. I think this book would appeal mostly to boys who appreciate an occasional fart joke. "

    " When ten-year-old "Scab" McNally takes swimming lessons, he is afraid he will be forced to reveal his secret fear of deep water. I absolutely love this series! I am seriously laughing out loud when I read these. "
