Author(s): Andrew Clements

Early Chapter Books

Sixth grader Alec can't put a good book down. So when Principal Vance lays down the law-pay attention in class, or else-Alec takes action. He can't lose all his reading time, so he starts a club. A club he intendsto be the only member of. After all, reading isn't a team sport, and no one would want to join something called the Losers Club, right? But as more and more kids find their way to Alec's club-including his ex-friend turned bully andthe girl Alec is maybe starting to like-Alec notices something. Real life might be messier than his favorite books, but it'sjust as interesting. With The Losers Club,Andrew Clements brings us a new school story that's a love letter to books and to reading and that reminds us that sometimes the best stories are the ones that happen off the page-our own! Praise for The Losers Club!* "Clements's latest is engaging and funny. A laugh-out-loud first purchase for all middle grade collections, and a solid read-aloud choice for classrooms."-School Library Journal, Starred Review "Clements is out to celebrate reading in all its obsessiveness, and...tosses in shout-outs to a passel of other writers. (The Losers Club) gives fried bookworms everywhere the satisfaction of knowing that friends may desert them (if only temporarily) but books never will. "-The New York Times Praise for Andrew Clements! oClements is a genius.o -The New York Times oWe have never read an Andrew Clements book that we haven't loved.o -The Washington Post
