Worst Week Ever! Monday by Eva Amores and Matt Cosgrove
This brilliantly imagined and designed series hilariously details the worst week ever of 12-year-old Justin Chase. Each book in this 7-part series is an entire day of the terrible, heart-stopping, gut-wrenching, butt-clenching week, starting with book one, Monday.
It’s not just a pretty bad sort of a week
It’s the worst week ever! We meet Justin just as he is starting at a new school, getting a new step-dad (who may or may not be a vampire), encountering a new bully and a ton of new experiences.
Unfortunately for Justin, each one of these experiences is about to go horribly, embarrassingly, jaw-droppingly and side-splittingly-funnily WRONG. This is a fast-paced, rollicking roller-coaster of a book that will keep kids laughing.
A totally interactive worst week ever!
This book has something for everyone and in a way that speaks to kids of today. Instead of showing us what Justin looks like, the creators of this book, give us a spot the difference puzzle. Instead of showing us a bus ride, they give it to us like something out of a video game. It’s a visually engaging book, that even has a blank panel where readers can add to some of the fun names for Justin’s dad’s truck.
Oh, did I tell you that Justin’s dad’s truck is a giant toilet on wheels? Or, that Justin is dropped off at his new school in the truck, in full view of the entire school? Or that Justin has a bout of food poisoning that’s bubbling away in his guts as he’s about to enter the school’s swimming carnival and that there’s every chance it could cause a Code Brown? Well, I have now. So, consider yourself warned. This is the sort of gross, funny and totally interactive experience that your kids are going to love.
