A new series from the bestselling author of Dear Dumb Diary

Victor Shmud has been many things: Knuckle Doctor, a Hunter of Ghost Bears, a Tattoo Artist, The Guy At The Restaurant That Puts The Sugar In Those Little Envelopes, a Computer Scientist, an Octopus Wrestler, and a Wedding Planner. In fact, he's been nearly everything definitely not A Guy Who Cleans Up Bedrooms yet. But his newest gig is beautifuller yes, that's a word. He's also a Licensed Wordmaker.
