A collection of six blithe comedies, illustrated by Dodson's energetic, tuned-in drawings. Each story involves Nelson Malone, 11, in a stupendous adventure – from homework machines to talking snakes, magic sneakers and a summer camp run by aliens!
PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY: Crackling dialogue and the author's affinity with young people add spirit to doings. Readers will hope to find more titles by Hawes after this debut.
