Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide to Not Reading

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • "Hilarious…This debut is filled with passages that beg to be shared…With its subversive humor and contemporary details drawn straight from kids worlds, this clever title should attract a wide following." – Booklist
  • "Greenwald pulls off a clever bit of reverse psychology in his debut, first in a series starring a cheeky middle grader who goes to great lengths to avoid reading and whose humor and rapid-fire delivery should draw in like-minded kids." – Publishers Weekly
