Description

written by Matt Cibula illustrated by Brian Strassburg

You're saying you don't know about The Contrary Kid? You're saying you're not familiar with the "off-beat and unusual extraordinary youth" who bathes in spinach soup and goes to school wearing a big blueberry beard? You're saying you don't know about the Zino Press book that spawned a worldwide fan club? You want to know what it's all about? Well, we call The Contrary Kid "a rhyming, secret-coded, glow-in-the-dark book-stravaganza." But look below to see what some people (who probably know better) are saying about all this.

Full-color illustrations; jacketed, smyth-sewn, reinforced hardcover with a glow-in-the-dark jacket;

Professional Reviews What they are saying...
  • "A modern-day gem, a Dr. Seuss-like romp meets Seinfeld." - Small Press Magazine
  • "Contains the kind of weirdness in pictures and words that kids will love. In Silverstein and Prelutsky style, the words just roll on with hilarity and wackiness." - Lorgnette Quarterly Review of Children’s and Young Adults’ Books
  • "When [the Contrary Kid] says "if you do not like me, you just haven’t met me yet," most readers will agree." - School Library Journal
  • "A first-person olfactory tour of a lifetime [with] just enough silliness to keep younger readers laughing." - BookLovers
  • "An appreciation for rhyme is fostered in a lively, rollicking story." - The Children’s Bookwatch
  • "Takes a gentle, entertaining approach." - BookLovers
