About the Book

Eleven days into The Great Flour Baby Experiment, the rest of the boys are ready to drop-kick their six-pound flour "babies" into the creek, but not Simon. Simon's flour baby is helping him figure out his own life--why his father walked out on him and how strong his mother is, raising him alone. An ALA Notable Book; School Library Journal Best Book of the Year; Boston Globe/Horn Book Honor Book; ALA Quick Pick; and Horn Book Fanfare.
