Lucas Cott is one of the smartest kids in Mrs. Hockaday's third grade class, but everyone thinks he's just the class clown. He races pencils, cracks jokes, and calls out answers without raising his hand. Of course, he gets in trouble a lot-but Lucas blames that on Cricket Kaufman, the biggest tattletale in the third grade. One day, Lucas decides that he doesn't want to get in trouble anymore. From now on, he's going to become the perfect student. But when Lucas tries to change his ways, the most unexpected things begin to happen. Filled with warmth and fun, Class Clown is a captivating story for any child who has just begun to enjoy reading alone. Author Johanna Hurwitz spent many years working as a children's librarian in schools and public libraries throughout New York City. Her many popular books showcase her keen understanding of the kind of stories that children-and their teachers and parents-love best.

"Reader Barbara Caruso is perfect as she relates the antics of Nora and her little brother, Teddy, and third-grader Lucas Cott, known as the "class clown." Caruso's warmth and energy, clarity and moderate pace work together to capture the listener. Inflection and expression are key to this excellent performance; tone, more often than a variety of accents, distinguishes the characters. In the second book, (BUSYBODY NORA) Caruso succeeds in getting to the heart of a smart, decent kid who needs guidance, limits and reassurance as he tries to change his image and follow the rules. Listeners will relate to Nora's "misadventures" and will love hearing Caruso's crisp voice tell the tales. J.H.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine"
