Kit Feeny: The Ugly Necklace by Michael Townsend
Townsend, Michael Kit Feeny: The Ugly Necklace 96 pgs. Knopf Books for Young Readers Language~G; Sexual Content~G Violence~G
Kit Feeny starts this set of adventures off by digging for treasure. . . .all over his backyard. When he is reminded of his mother’s birthday, Kit and his friend frantically try to think of an appropriate gift. To make matters more serious (funny), he has made a bet with his twin sisters that his gift will be the favorite. In another set of funny, slightly crass stories, Kit gets into mischief and learns that a mother loves your present no matter what.
These comics will attract the same crowd as Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Once they have read one the kids will want more.
