Twelve-year-old Tad is a blogger with a plan, in the book Jon Stewart calls "hilarious to anyone who ever went through, is currently in, might go to, or flunked out of middle school."

Tad has an agenda: Survive seventh grade. He also wants to: grow a mustache, get girls to notice him, and do a kickflip on his skateboard. But those are not the main reasons he started a blog. Tad just has a lot of important thoughts he wants to share with the world, like: Here is the first thing I have learned about having a dog in your house: Don't feed them nachos. Not ever.

This highly illustrated and hilarious book is by the Emmy® Award-winning former head writer of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and is based on a column in MAD Magazine. Through a series of daily entries, readers are treated to a year in Tad's blog that will leave them in stitches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Funny! This is a great book for any kids who love Diary of a Wimpy Kid - the book is absolutely hilarious, and I've yet to hear of a kid disliking this book! It's funny, which is a big hit with kids, and it's a more word-intensive than Diary of a Wimpy Kid, which is a hit with parents and teachers alike!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big hit with my 11 year old boy It's set up like a daily journal which my 11 year old son loves. It was similar in feel to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series. Tad, the main character is likeable and believable. One of my son's favorite reads of late. Sure hope a second book is in the works.

Editorial Reviews

“Tad is the rapid-fire, pop-culture-referencing, actually-funny stand-up-comic-in-waiting that I wanted to be in middle school!”
