Angeline could read before she was old enough to turn the pages of a book, and she mastered the piano without a single lesson. But being so clever doesn’t make life easy for Angeline. Mean kids at school call her a ‘genius freak’, and her dad seems a bit worried about how to look after her. It is not until she makes friends with a boy who tells the best jokes, and a teacher who loves tropical fish, that things start to get better in some surprising ways for Angeline.
What the critics say:
– School Library Journal on Dogs Don’t Tell Jokes
‘Sachar inserts humor that gives the suspense steep edges ... nothing is quite what it seems in this wildly inventive novel’
– New York Times Book Review on Holes
