Left Bank Books
Billy's wild imagination gets him into trouble at school, but a creative writing contest could be the perfect opportunity for him to shine. Full of nostalgic references to a time when TV was black-and-white and Sunday newspapers had things called the funnies, this wildly fun story-within-a-story is based loosely on children's book legend William Joyce's third grade year, when he wrote his first book, and includes a sewn-in mini-book of that tale of the world's smartest booger.
