Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key

by Jack Gantos Year Published: Average
Wired bad, wired mad, wired sad, or wired glad . . . there's no doubt about it -- Joey Pigza is wired. He can't sit still, he can't pay attention, and he can't follow the rules. And lately his behavior is so off-the-wall his teachers are threatening to send him to a special ed center downtown. Joey knows he's really a good kid, but no matter how hard he tries to do the right thing, something always seems to go wrong. Will he ever get anything right? A seriously comic tale of life in the hyperfast lane, Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key, now with a great new cover by Brian Selznick, will make readers stand up and cheer.
