Description-

  • From three-time Newbery Honor author Gary Paulsen comes a laugh-out-loud novella about six wacky misfits who get stuck together in a school restroom and discover friendship.
    It seemed like a normal school day, until a horrible storm forced the very cautious school administration to make everyone hole up in a safe place. Six students find themselves stuck in a tiny, questionably smelly space—a school bathroom—with a stuffed cat for entertainment. Hijinks ensue and the unexpected happens. They enter as strangers...and leave as friends.

    Get to know the story even better with a special script that accompanies the novel, so any six kids can get together with their friends and perform the story anywhere they'd like.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    February 22, 2016
    A master of action-propelled outdoor stories, Paulsen moves his focus inside, literally and figuratively, as he explores the interactions among six eighth-grade boys while they take shelter in a school bathroom during a severe weather alert. The situation is recounted by narrator Jordan, known for his anxiety-induced nosebleeds, his “standing date with the detention hall,” and his acerbic, insecurity-masking humor. Through the boys’ conversations and Jordan’s opinionated commentary, Paulsen shapes complex portraits of each character (including a condescending “hyperintellectual,” a popular but “emotionally tone deaf” overachiever, and a mostly nonspeaking kid plugged into his earbuds and rocking an air guitar), exposing subtle contrasts between their inner and outer selves. At the story’s emotional center is skittish new student Avery, who’s embarrassed by his security blanket–like plush cat. The novel’s contained setting and rapid-fire dialogue gives the story a theatrical quality that Paulsen taps into directly by retelling the entire story in screenplay form, complete with stage directions, at the end. Both versions provide opportunities for thought and conversations about self-honesty, stereotypes, and making friends in unexpected situations. Ages 8–12.
