This is the story of THE LEAGUE OF PICKLEMAKERS
Ben: who began it all by sneaking in one night and filling homeroom with ball-pit balls.
Frank: who figured out that an official club, say a pickle-making club, could receive funding from the PTA.
Oliver: Who once convinced half of the class that his real parents had found him and he was going to live in a submarine.
Bean: Who wasn't exactly invited, but her parents own a costume shop, which comes in handy if you want to dress up like a giant squirrel and try to scare people at the zoo. TOGETHER, they are an unstoppable prank-pulling force, and Fountain Point Middle School will never be the same.
"Baker writes with a light and lively hand, depicting a realistic urban setting peopled with engaging characters from various ethnic backgrounds."--"Horn Book"
"Sure to please anyone with a puckish sense of humor or a hankering for innocent prank ideas."--"Kirkus"
"Even though this is a fast-paced, humorous story, it tackles the true meanings of friendship . . . Pair this with James Preller's "Justin Fisher" books or Jeff Kinney's "Diary of a Wimpy Kid "series." -- "Booklist"
"Probert's finely detailed, expressive illustrations depict the club's racially diverse makeup. Baker's debut novel shows promise and offers an enjoyable read." -- "School Library Journal"
