The Barftastic Life of Louie Burger: Class B.U.R.P.
by
Jenny Meyerhoff

Reading Level: Grades 3 - 7

Louie is a bit different from the other fifth-graders.  He wants to be a comedian like his idol Lou Lafferman.Class so he has a notebook of jokes and comedy routines. What he doesn't want to be is class B.U.R.P. (Boy Used to Ridicule and Put-Downs) and that's just what Louie was until a video of him was aired on T.V.  But the popularity bump didn't last, so Louie figures he needs something else even if that means upsetting his two best friends.  Kids will love this second Louie Burger book and maybe even learn a few new jokes like  "Why didn't anyone want to babysit the little vampire?"

Meet author Jenny Meyerhoff at the iRead kick-off on January 10th.
