The Transmogrification of Roscoe Wizzle

by David Elliott

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Oh no! Roscoe Wizzle is turning into a bug! Could it have anything to do with that stranger walking around town in a gorilla suit? Or is it because Roscoe has eaten one too many Jungleburgers from Gussy’s, the hottest restaurant to hit Roseville since the tornado came to town and carried off that old lady, rocking chair and all? Worse yet, will Roscoe be the next kid to disappear from Roseville? It will take Roscoe and his best friend, “certified genius” Kinchy Boomer, to solve the mystery of Roscoe’s trans-mog-ri-fi-ca-tion. Along the way, they’ll meet a seventy-three and a half year old lady who just happens to be an expert in ju-jitsu, a boy who has already grown a lovely set of antennae, and a teacher who gives his pupils spelling words he knows they can’t spell. Fast-paced, hilarious and full of heart, The Transmogrification of Roscoe Wizzle is a favorite with both kids and teachers. Nominated for many state book awards and appearing on school and library reading lists across the country, it’s the perfect book for avid and reluctant readers alike. Especially good for that boy in your life (but girls love it, too). And by the way, don’t worry if you don’t know the meaning of that fancy word, transmogrification. It’s all spelled out in the book. Gr 2-4
