Fantastic story for kids from 4th grade on up. Great as a read aloud for a unit on writing or on inventions. Our main character, Sneeze, is determined to get to the Invention Convention with his Nice Alarm (that has only broken one nose so far!) but his plans are foiled when his summer vacation is cut short by his parent's financial situation. Instead of a nice road trip with his parents and his best friend, he now has to go to *gasp* summer school where he is sentenced to take a class on writing.
The story is well written and engaging, and makes for a quick read!
