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
