Andrew Clements, the best-selling author of the Jake Drake series, never fails to engross young listeners with his lively characters and authentic portrayals of childhood. Troublemaker stars Clayton Hensley, a prankster who boasts the largest "incident report" in his grade. And his latest stunt-a hand-drawn portrait of his principal as a donkey-should make him the stuff of legend. But when his older brother gets in some serious trouble, Clayton begins to see the error of his ways. The only problem is, no one else believes he can leave his troublemaking days behind him.

"With each school-based book, author Andrew Clements delves into both the psyches of students and unvisited arenas of school life. This story travels the halls between the art room and the principal's office as sixth-grader Clay--who emulates his tough-guy older brother, Mitch--faces vandalism charges and the difficult notion of change. Narrator Keith Nobbs transitions easily among the roles of Clay, brother Mitch, principal Kellin, and secretary Ormin. Nobbs's nonchalant manner moves the narrative parts of the story along. His voice expresses surprise and anxiety as Clay realizes that Mitch is steering him in a whole new direction, remoteness as Mitch describes his prison experience, and rich-voiced friendliness as Kellin, the principal, gives a kid another chance.
