Listen to this author interview and hear author Jack Gantos talk about his children's book I Am Not Joey Pigza. In this installment of Gantos' Newbery Honor-winning middle-grade fiction series, Joey Pigza's good-for-nothing dad pops back into his life. After a lucky lotto win, Carter Pigza has a crazy new outlook on life, and he's even changed his name to Charles Heinz. He thinks Joey and his mom should become new people, too.
"Another wild ride–over serious terrain."—Starred, Publishers Weekly
“A great continuation of the Pigza saga.”—Kathy Taber, Kids Ink Children’s Bookstore, Indianapolis, IN
