One of the best-selling young-adult books of all time.

John Conlan is nicknamed The Bathroom Bomber after setting off firecrackers in the boys' bathroom 23 times without ever getting caught. John and his best friend, Lorraine, can never please their parents, and school is a chore. To pass the time, they play pranks on unsuspecting people, and it's during one of these pranks that they meet the Pigman. In spite of themselves, John and Lorraine soon get caught up in Mr. Pignati's zest for life. In fact, they become so involved that they begin to destroy the only corner of the world that has ever mattered to them. Can they stop before it's too late?

Zindel's groundbreaking, best-selling tour de force was one of the first young-adult books ever written and has been taught in classrooms for over 40 years. It includes a fascinating interview with the author, Paul Zindel.

    " If I was a bigger Paul Zindel fan, I might have been a little more enthused about this one. Just like his novels, this autobiographical work is full of teenage wit, sarcasm, and sensitivity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paige | 2/16/2011

    " Thought I would use this book as a companion for reading THE PIGMAN with my students. Not really finding material in this book that would complement the fictional story. "

    " Reading it in Mrs.Shack's class. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 5/8/2010

    " An interesting memoir from the author whose books I loved as a teenager.
    The humour was there but not the biting teenage angst of his fiction. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 8/4/2009

    " Fast, easy read. I don't know if I would have read this for fun as a kid because I wasn't into memoirs back then, but I think it would be great to teach and I think teens would like it in that context. It's interesting how he found humor even in the challenging circumstances of his life. "

    " An absolutely delightful and entertaning autobiography. It covers just a few adolescent years of the author's life and how those years influenced him for good. Realistic, interesting, and fun. It will take you back to middle school! "
