"Alex 'Skinnybones' Frankovitch is back, this time starring in a TV
commercial after sending a prizewinning letter to a cat food company. Alex is
signing autographs in preparation for his newfound celebrity, but things don't
work out the way he hoped. Onscreen, he plays a six-year-old running away from
home--quite an insult for a 12-year-old. Alex has one more chance at fame when
he wins a role in "A Christmas Carol," but it's as Tiny Tim, not Scrooge
as Alex would have liked. As always, Park is laugh-out-loud funny and kids will
have a wonderful time with this story."-- "Booklist.
