Synopsis

Moving to a new neighborhood means having to make new friends-which makes klutzy Noah more than a little nervous. And even though Mo, the spunky but nosy girl who lives next door, introduces him to her group of friends, he still has to find a way to win them over. Noah can't juggle like Mo, whistle like Peter, or read while standing on his head like Jessica. But can showing off a bizarre housewarming present do the trick? What must he do to impress them before he can call them friends?

This likeable new character, with his familiar dilemma, is sure to become a favorite with Johanna Hurwitz's legions of young fans.

In the novel's funniest scene, Noah and his buddies—without the consent of the boy's parents—solemnly give the deer head a funeral ("Burying the head of the poor dead deer seemed like a really decent thing to do," muses the boy) and over its grave sing "Doe a Deer" and "Home on the Range."
