Description - Return to Augie Hobble by Lane Smith
Augie Hobble lives in a fairy tale-or at least Fairy Tale Place, the down-on-its-luck amusement park managed by his father. Yet his life is turning into a nightmare: he's failed creative arts and has to take summer school, the girl he has a crush on won't acknowledge him, and Hogg Wills and the school bullies won't leave him alone. Worse, a succession of mysterious, possibly paranormal, events have him convinced that he's turning into a werewolf. At least Augie has his notebook and his best friend Britt to confide in-until the unthinkable happens and Augie's life is turned upside down, and those mysterious, possibly paranormal, events take on a different meaning.
Return to Augie Hobble by Lane Smith is a charming tale about a boy stumbling through life and the supernatural. Hilarious, tender, wise, the book is packed with haunting illustrations throughout that all make for one, unforgettable middle-grade adventure.
"The incomparable Lane Smith stomps triumphantly into the middle school playground with his first novel." -The New York Times Book Review
