Diary of a Real Kid : The stranger than weird story of how Billy Smudge turned into a goat.
By J. Garden MacDonald
Diary of a Real "Kid" pokes fun at the multitude of "diary" books available in a light and humorous way. Twelve-year-old, Billy Smudge, is a wannabe writer with a passion for "Stranger Than Weird" magazine. Billy's well-fed imagination takes a wild leap though when he wakes up one day and discovers that he is turning into a goat. Yep, a real "kid."
Along with his best friend, Shamus McNutt, the boys navigate a series of misadventures on their way to discovering what caused the mysterious transformation.
There is plenty of fun, a sprinkling of light sarcasm, friends, teachers, siblings and even a mad scientist. Everyone learns something about the 'power of suggestion' and how it might just be possible to become what you 'think' you are.
Educators and parents will find this book suitable for most readers in the 8 - 12 year- old range, including reluctant readers.
Humorous cartoon illustrations represent Billy's inner commentary.
