What happens when a kid eats too much junk food and watches too much TV, and never, ever leaves the couch? You guessed it: he turns into a couch potato-literally! In a unique feature, the book has three separate endings-three different outcomes for poor Bud-which range from the positive and uplifting to the decidedly macabre (which kids thoroughly love). Behind the humor is a serious message to help combat childhood obesity.
Adam Byrn Tritt is a poet, essayist, screenwriter, teacher, and humorist, and holds degrees in Psychology, Education, and English. "Java John" Goldacker is a graphic artist, illustrator, and photographer. John also illustrated the children's book River Dragon.

Editorial Reviews

“I’ve been a Special Education teacher for nearly twenty years, and this book honestly made me laugh out loud. Please don't be afraid that the content is too ‘dark’ for young kids. I promise you they’ll find it as hysterical as I do, and the message packs a punch. I can't wait to read it to my students!”
--Joyce Hatch, Special Ed Teacher, March 2012
