This book is actually listed for ages 8-12. Inside summary states: When his family runs low on funds while on a trip to Toronto, nine-year-old Sam, hoping to win $10,000,allows himself to be "borrowed" and entered in a contest to find the Perfecto Kiddo. The New York Times states "...much in the absurd and outrageouis manner of Roald Dahl."
Wonderfully different type of kids book that will keep you or your kid hooked from the first page!
What's Sam to do when his dad's gambled most of their money away & his mother is having no luck selling her art? Well his only solution is to head out in search for The Big Bazoohley (the grand prize that his dad swear will be the answer to all their problems).
Twists & turns at every end. My son & I both loved it =)
