Book Overview
A humorous chapter book about a fourth-grade boy, full of the fun of growing up in Hawaii. Calvin Coconut lives near the beach in Kailua, Hawaii, with his mom and his little sister. All his friends live there, too. Mom says: You're the man of the house, Cal. Which means: Be responsible. Calvin tries, but fun--and trouble--follows him wherever he goes, even in the classroom, also known as Mr. Purdy's Fourth-Grade Boot Camp. And how can he be the man of the house after teenage Stella-from-Texas arrives to be the live-in babysitter and steps all over Calvin's turf? Award-winning author Graham Salisbury welcomes younger readers to a lively new series with great illustrations by Jacqueline Rogers.
