READING IS DELICIOUS...IF YOU LIKE PICKLES
Ben had bags and bags full of plastic balls from the local pizza parlor's ball pit. What to do? What to do? There were so many that they could fill up his entire classroom. That would surely put a smile on everyone's faces in the morning if they walked into a homeroom full of colorful balls!
What started out as a one time prank became a secret club officially sanctioned by the PTA, unbeknownst to the PTA of course. And that's how THE PICKLE CLUB came to be, after all, how else would they remain secret except to make it the weirdest and most boring club so that no one but only a select few would want to be in it.
Pickle: The (Formerly) Anonymous Prank Club of Fountain Point Middle School by Kim Baker is a fun romp for readers in 5th-8th grade.
