I got off to a bad start at Bat Masterson Junior High School. My family had moved from my old school district during the summer, and I didn't know a single kid at the school. On top of that, it turned out that the kids at Bat Masterson put a lot of emphasis on how you look. This created a problem--I am a short, portly kid, and I wear glasses. (from the first line)

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"Daniel Pinkwater is so obviously the funniest writer of children's books that he should be made a Living National Treasure....B-movies, science fiction, satire, touches of mystical philosophy and nostalgia--these are the ingredients of Pinkwater's novels. For readers of any age, the result is as tasty as a serving of Horthian Florff, indisputably the finest junk food in the known universe." - Michael Dirda 09/07/1997
