"Freeman's upbeat spot illustrations and English's accessibly storytelling target the book to emerging independent readers." - Publishers Weekly It's tough being the new kid at Carver Elementary. Gavin had lots of friends at his old school, but the kids&nbsphere don't even know that he's good at skateboarding, or how awesome he is at soccer.&nbspAnd when his&nbspclassmate Richard comes over and the boys end up&nbspin trouble, not only does Gavin risk losing his one new friend, but he has to take care of&nbsphis great-aunt Myrtle's horrible little dog as punishment. How is he&nbspever going to prove he's cool&nbspwith&nbspa yappy little Pomeranian wearing a pink bow at his side?
