Jerry Spinelli is one of my favorite authors. He has writen so many wonderful books, that are surprising and moving and just great. I'm really excited about his new book, Hokey Pokey:
Welcome to Hokey Pokey. A place and a time, when childhood is at its
best: games to play, bikes to ride, experiences to be had. There are no
adults in Hokey Pokey, just kids, and the laws governing Hokey Pokey are
simple and finite. But when one of the biggest kids, Jack, has his
beloved bike stolen--and by a girl, no less--his entire world, and the
world of Hokey Pokey, turns to chaos. Without his bike, Jack feels like
everything has started to go wrong. He feels different, not like
himself, and he knows something is about to change. And even more
troubling he alone hears a faint train whistle. But that's impossible:
every kid knows there no trains in Hokey Pokey, only tracks.
