And the Award for Best Book About Boogers Goes To...

Marvin Redpost: Why Pick on Me? by Louis Sachar!

If you're a regular reader (yeah, right), you know I've just discovered Sachar's Marvin Redpost series. I've only read two of these books for younger readers, but they were terrific. This guy takes offbeat, yet realistic, things that happen to kids and creates books around them.

I am absolutely in awe of what he did with the subject of boogers in this book.

Yep, classy books like The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place (see yesterday's post) don't make that big an impression on me. But give me a book about boogers...
