This is a fun-loving book about a little boy's plight; moving and meeting new friends. What is unique about meeting them is all of them have nicknames. Do you have a nickname? Do you know someone with a nickname? If you need a good laugh, the main character's journey to feeling accepted and confident is one that will encounter many nicknames along the way. So, prepare yourself to have a few chuckles with these new friends.
Nine-year-old Zimri is not pleased about leaving his friends and moving 500 miles away to a new place when his father loses his job. Zimri worries that it will be hard to make new friends in Granger, Texas. But Zimri is excited when Uncle Krusty takes him to the park and introduces him to a group of kids. There’s Toonie, Shock, Totty, Boom-Boom, and Wheeler, and they all have fun playing together and eating ice cream. Zimri suddenly realizes that everyone he’s met has a nickname, and he dreams of having a nickname, too. But how will he find the nickname that’s just right for him? I Gotta Get a Nickname follows Zimri on his journey to being accepted in his new community.
