“Middle school student Charlie Joe Jackson hates reading, so he devises a clever scheme involving an ice cream-loving friend who helps him with his reading assignments. After the terms of their agreement suddenly change, Charlie Joe hatches an elaborate but risky plan to avoid the reading portion of a major project. Readers will find Charlie Joe's guide to be an irresistible blend of wit and creativity that will hold their interest to the very last page.”
— Tish Gayle, The Blue Marble, Fort Thomas, KY

About the Author


TOMMY GREENWALD has enjoyed reading all his life, which is why he's appalled that his kids Charlie, Joe and Jack, would prefer getting a dental check-up to checking out a book. After years of pleading, threatening, and bribing, Tommy finally decided the only way to get his kids to read was to write a book about how to get out of reading. This is the result. And they read it! (So they say.) The Executive Creative Director at SPOTCO, an entertainment advertising agency in New York City, Tommy lives in Connecticut with his wife, Cathy; his non-reading sons, Charlie, Joe and Jack; and his dogs, Moose and Coco.Check out Tommy's website (minimal reading required) at www.tommygreenwald.com
