Dog Days:The Carver Chronicles
It's tough being the new kid at Carver Elementary. Gavin had lots of friends at his old school, but the kids here don't even know that he's pretty good at skateboarding or how awesome he is at soccer. And to make matters worse, he has to deal with a thieving bully, an annoying older sister, and his great aunt Myrtle's Pomeranian dog. From the creators of the acclaimed Nikki and Deja stories comes the first book in a charming, funny new series featuring the boys of Carver Elementary. Ages 7 to 8.
