Cartboy Series

Filled with photos, drawings, and timelines, this laugh-out-loud journal-style series for young readers chronicles Hal Rifkind’s wayward middle school misadventures. From home to school to summer camp, Hal drags around his belongings in an old shopping cart which earns him the lamentable nickname of Cartboy. This humorous series begins with Cartboy and the Time Capsule and is a great pick for reluctant young readers and Wimpy Kid fans. 

"Hal’s authentic voice and realistic twelve-year-old sense of humor will hook Wimpy Kid fans." —Kirkus Reviews

In the tradition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid comes Cartboy and the Time Capsule by L.A. Campbell, a laugh-out-loud debut novel about sixth-grader Hal Rifkind—unfortunately nicknamed “Cartboy”—and his horribly historic, hilarious year.

Hal hates history class—it literally bores him to tears. But his father is a big history buff, and unless Hal gets a good grade this year, he’ll never get his own room. Sixth grade gets off to a horrible start when history teacher Mr. Tupkin gives the class an assignment to write journals that will be buried in a time capsule at the end of the year. Things get even worse when his dad makes him take his neighbor’s old shopping cart to school, earning him the nickname “Cartboy.” What else could possibly go wrong? Read Hal’s journal to find out!

Filled with photos, drawings, and timelines, Hal’s time capsule journal chronicles a year in the life of the hopelessly hapless Cartboy.
