How does Fishpond Work?

We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

Trouble with Girls

Jeff quietly does his school work, dresses quietly, has a few strong friendships, and is mostly unobtrusive. So when the Evil Girl Group-or the rotten EGGs-decide to make Jeff a target for their teasing, life takes a decidedly bad turn. Also, though he always gets excellent marks, there's a constant concern that he won't be able to keep up at school. One of the few outlets he uses to overcome all his worries is the cartoon strip he and his friend Nick produce, Cowboy Bob. But Nick doesn't seem to be available these days. Perhaps Jeff can find a new friend in Janice, who has her own worries about fitting in, and just maybe Cowboy Bob can corral the EGGs and teach them a lesson.

"A cast of dynamic, memorable characters, plenty of humor (a Staunton trademark) and well-paced plots with believable school-age conflicts and satisfying endings. . . . Highly recommended."
"-Canadian Materials"

"Staunton's strength is that he uses humor to engage the reader while exploring problems that loom large on the pre-teen radar."
"-City Parent"
