About the Author:

Eoin Colfer, the second of five brothers, was born and raised in Wexford, in the south-east of Ireland. Artemis Fowl, his first book featuring the brilliant young anti-hero, was an immediate international bestseller and won the WHSmith 'People's Choice' Children's Book of the Year and the Children's Book of the Year at the British Book Awards. This is Eoin's third book for younger readers.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2–4—With four other complaining sons, Will Woodman's parents don't have time to listen when he needs to vent. Frustrated, he hopes that his Grandad will become his confidant. When he spends Saturdays working with the old man, who is the lighthouse keeper in a seaside village, the two strike a deal to listen to each other's "sob stories." Grandad, though, has a penchant for "one-upping." Poor Will can't seem to top any of his unbelievable stories, which involve shark bites on the head, badgers stealing schoolbags, and a bad run-in with tinfoil. Finally catching some time alone with his dad, Will learns a remarkable and amusing story about himself that he's sure can't be topped. In the end, Grandad helps Will to make a significant discovery about himself and his problems, making this a satisfying, funny, and engaging addition to the series. Quirky cartoon illustrations add to the fun, creating a perfect selection for reluctant readers. Fans of Wendelin Van Draanen's "Shredderman" (Yearling), Dave Keane's "Joe Sherlock" (HarperCollins), and Dav Pilkey's "Captain Underpants" (Scholastic) series will enjoy this book.—Jennifer Cogan, Bucks County Free Library, Doylestown, PA
