Ages 9 years & over. Ten-year-old Aldo is not athletic like his older brother and he is not a rock hound like his best friend, but when his grandmother gives him a sketchbook to record all his "artsy-fartsy ideas", he discovers that he is a pretty good cartoonist. In this instalment of Aldo's adventures, Aldo finds himself thinking he is Einstein. Gloating over his exemplary first-quarter grades and test scores, he even decides to dress as the iconic scientist for Halloween. His bubble is burst, though, when he realises that he is not excelling in one class, Espanol, and that the consequences may be more hurtful than a bad grade on a report card. Is Aldo's friendship with his bilingual best friend, Jack, at stake? As always, this addition to the A-to-Z alphabet series features a vocabulary-building glossary of fun and challenging words starting with the letter E, such as erudite, eureka, epiphany, and eclair.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a book that definitely speaks 'kid speak.' The first installment of an A-to-Z series, this is perfect for reluctant readers. It's fun for kids and will be appreciated by parents and teachers for the amusing 'back door' approach to enriching vocabulary. Look out Wimpy Kid!" --Stacy Morris, Katy Budget Books, Kids' Next Winter 2010-2011 nomination
"Greg Heffley and Ellie McDoodle, move over--Aldo Zelnick is here!" --Mary Lee Hahn, 4th grade teacher and notable children's books committee chair for the National Council of the Teachers of English
"One of the most remarkable things about these books is the voice of Aldo, which rings true from every page. The hilarious drawings enhance the text with jokes and visual humor that make Aldo's personality pop." --Rebecca McGregor, Picture Literacy, Inc.
