From the Publisher:
DAVID IS ONLY trying to be cool when he helps some of the popular kids steal Old Lady Bayfield’s cane. But when the plan backfires, he’s the one the “old witch” curses. Now David can’t seem to do anything right. Is it the Bayfield curse at work? Or is David simply turning into a total loser?

“Wildly funny.”—Kirkus Reviews
Annotation:
Caught up in peer pressure and his hope of being popular, David Ballinger goes along with a few of his classmates when they attack an elderly woman and steal her cane. Soon after, when a series of strange and embarrassing events begin plaguing him, David becomes convinced that the woman he helped attack is a witch and that she has put a curse on him. Could the woman really have cursed David, or has he cursed himself with his own remorse over the incident?
Author Bio
Louis Sachar
Best known for the critically acclaimed HOLES, Louis Sachar was a lawyer before devoting himself to writing children's books full-time. Though he was born in New York, most of his childhood was spent in California, where he attended the University of California at Berkeley after a brief stint at Antioch ended by his father's death. His experiences working as a teacher's aide at a local elementary school inspired the popular Wayside School series. A bridge enthusiast, Sachar lives with his wife, Carla, in Austin, Texas.
