Robert's class is having an achievement contest, and Robert desperately wants to win. Anyone who gets A's on homework, reads books, or helps the teachers will earn points toward the prize. Robert pledges to do all those things, but it won't be easy. He's never read a whole book and his papers are usually marked with a pig stamp that says "could be neater." Robert becomes a teacher's helper, cleans up after art class, and serves as library monitor. But will his good intentions and steadfastness be enough? Lively drawings illustrate this hilarious story of a likable boy who is finally rewarded for his good nature and hard work.
