The Stupendous Dodgeball Fiasco

Greetings! This is Dewey. I recently read a book you’re sure to like. The Stupendous Dodgeball Fiasco by Janice Repka is about a boy named Phillip, possibly the first kid ever to want to run away from the circus. His dad is a clown and his mom is the Fat Lady. But all he wants to be is a normal kid.

I know you’re probably thinking, “Wait a minute, that doesn’t have anything to do with dodgeball.” Keep reading and you’ll find out it does. Phillip gets a chance to live with relatives and go to school in a town where everyone is crazy about dodgeball. Everyone except Phillip, who likes dodgeball even less after his glasses get broken in gym class by an illegal face shot thrown by the school bully.

Being a library cat, I’ve never played dodgeball myself. But, like Phillip, I certainly don’t see the appeal in purposely trying to hit others with hard balls. So I think he was right in trying to change the system by singlehandedly taking on the Unofficial Dodgeball Capital of the World. I won’t tell you how he did it, just know that it’s ingenious and quite funny.

Don’t forget. The Stupendous Dodgeball Fiasco by Janice Repka. As a professional book expert, I must insist you read it, and the sooner the better!
