Morgan doesn't like the new kid, Curtis, who can juggle, do karate and play guitar, and loves to brag about it. But some of the kids in his class are impressed, especially when Curtis teases Aldeen, the Queen of Mean -- who isn't even mean back! Does Aldeen actually like Curtis? A game of egg toss at a neighbourhood party will show how Aldeen really feels. Who do you think ends up with egg on his face?

Awards

Commended - Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Books for Kids & Teens Selection - 2013

"The black and white illustrations by Bill Slavin are drawn in a cartoon style -- which is perfect for this age group... The short chapters and easy language make this book ideal for children just beginning to read chapter books. The story being told is one to which all children can relate, and it can be enjoyed by a variety of children." Highly Recommended.

- Lisa Case CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"Visually the book is appealing; Bill Slavin's pencil drawings are well suited to the text."

- Tricia Reese Resource Links

"Young readers will appreciate the accessible text, action-filled black-and-white illustrations, discrete chapters that end on suspenseful notes and a slight twist on the usual bully fare... A good choice for transitioning readers looking for a splash of humor."
