“Knucklehead is an absolute scream, detailing the misadventures of Jon Scieszka and his five brothers growing up together. There are horrible Halloween costumes, broken bones, unbelievable nicknames, pee fights, weird Cub Scout rules, socks for birthday presents, and that's just the beginning.”
— Sarah Todd, Children's Book World, Haverford, PA

Description


Have you ever: Had your brother try to sell you your own shirt? Made a list of all the bad words you know for your teacher who is a nun? Believed one of those AMAZING ads in the back of a comic book? Broken your brother's collarbone playing football four times? Tied your little brother into his bed with your dad's ties? Jon Scieszka has. Which is probably why Jon's dad used to call him and his five brothers KNUCKLEHEADS. Here is Jon's side of the story. And here, at last, is the memoir that might answer some of the questions of how the heck does someone think up a story of a little man made of very smelly cheese.
