I Want To Go Home Novel Study from the Author: Ron Leduc. I Want to Go Home is the story of a boy’s various escape attempts from Camp Algonkian. Rudy Miller is sent to Camp Algonkian by his parents on the misguided advice of the school guidance counselor. There, Rudy is determined to become his own man, by making snide comments of the camp founder’s bow-legs, playing chess instead of the scheduled activities, or making a salaté for his counselor. At night, instead of singing campfire songs, Rudy spends his time planning various escapes from the camp. When a badly planned wager leaves Rudy in charge of the camp for a day, the campers will either kill him or call him a hero. Our Novel Studies provide a teacher and student section with a variety of activities, discussion questions and answer key to create a well-rounded lesson plan.

I Want To Go Home from the Author: Gordon Korman. Rudy Miller has tons of ideas on how to escape the camp he's been sent to "for his own good." The problem is - none of them work. Rudy teams up with Mike Webster, a quiet guy who's almost as happy to be there as Rudy is, and many "great escapes" are carefully planned and hilariously attempted. Chip, their counselor and nemesis, is just as determined to keep them there as they are to leave.

Ungifted from the Author: Gordon Korman. From #1 New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel in which one middle-school troublemaker accidentally moves into the gifted and talented program—and changes everything. For fans of Louis Sachar and Jack Gantos, this funny and touching underdog story is a lovable and goofy adventure with robot fights, middle-school dances, live experiments, and statue-toppling pranks! When Donovan Curtis pulls a major prank at his middle school, he thinks he’s finally gone too far. But thanks to a mix-up by one of the administrators, instead of getting in trouble, Donovan is sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special program for gifted and talented students. Although it wasn’t exactly what Donovan had intended, the ASD couldn’t be a more perfectly unexpected hideout for someone like him. But as the students and teachers of ASD grow to realize that Donovan may not be good at math or science (or just about anything), he shows that his gifts may be exactly what the ASD students never knew they needed. Don't miss the sequel to this word-of-mouth hit: Supergifted! This funny and heartwarming sequel to Ungifted cleverly sends up our preconceived ideas about intelligence, heroism, and popularity.

from the Author: Роальд Дал. «Я пишу лише про те, що забиває дух або смішить. Діти знають, що я завжди на їхньому боці», — ці слова Роальда Дала дуже точно відображають зміст і характер однієї з найблискучіших його дитячих повістей під назвою «ВДВ». Веселі, зворушливі і моторошні пригоди семиметрового велетня та маленької дівчинки Софії давно стали настільною книжкою для юних читачів Західної Європи та США. Софія та ВДВ вирішили втілити один надзвичайно сміливий план, який має порятувати людей від велетнів-людожерів... Серед героїв книжки — англійська королева, головнокомандувач військово-повітряних сил, велетні — Тілогриз, Костохруст та інші. Світова критика називає «ВДВ» «Книгою №1» сучасної дитячої літератури.
