Read full description of the books Miss Holly Is Too Jolly!:My book no. 350 is cause for a Christmas-style celebration in a big way! This 14th of the Saga of the Weird School is the one fans have waited for with the eagerness of awaiting for a certain Big Red Guy to drop from that chimney, Heater, or whatever entrance to your home is logically impossible for one man 300-plus pounds! AJ is celebrating the Holiday of Jesus' birth the only way he knows how: with Grinchian meanness and abject Scrooge-ish apathy, especially towards his most behated frenemy Andrea, the smarter woman (she's 10, he's at least 11, the younger girl is usually more mature anyway, and AJ is totally against that fact, or so he says!). The language arts teacher is Miss Holly, a cute blonde who is teaching Spanish to an enthusiastic class of girls (mostly) and a not-so-enthused group of boys (MOST mostly!). She celebrates every holiday imaginable around December: Christmas, Hannukah and the African holiday of Kwanzaa, and poor AJ will once more have to suffer the indignity of love and happiness surrounding this time of year. BUT: on the day of their Christmas pageant--all sugar plums and candy canes--(you ready for this?) AJ, AKA Arlo Jarvis (he will not live THAT down!) is trapped under the mistletoe with none other than Andrea and, yes folks, they kiss for the first time. Gloria in excelsis deo!!! Can AJ (short for Anti-Jollity if you see thru my perspective) endure the humiliation of falling in love with his own worst enemy (the other one being himself, naturally!)? Any comments from the critics I will DASH AWAY, DASH AWAY, DASH AWAY ALL! Merry Christmas, this day and every day!
Read information about the authorThe author of over 80 books in a little over a decade of writing, Dan Gutman has written on topics from computers to baseball. Beginning his freelance career as a nonfiction author dealing mostly with sports for adults and young readers, Gutman has concentrated on juvenile fiction since 1995. His most popular titles include the time-travel sports book Honus and Me and its sequels, and a clutch of baseball books, including The Green Monster from Left Field. From hopeful and very youthful presidential candidates to stunt men, nothing is off limits in Gutman's fertile imagination. As he noted on his author Web site, since writing his first novel, They Came from Centerfield, in 1994, he has been hooked on fiction. "It was fun to write, kids loved it, and I discovered how incredibly rewarding it is to take a blank page and turn it into a WORLD."
Gutman was born in New York City in 1955, but moved to Newark, New Jersey the following year and spent his youth there.
