Double the Danger and Zero Zucchini
by Betsy Uhrig




Overview -
A young boy attempts to transform his aunt's boring children's book into an exciting one in this funny, fast-paced adventure perfect for fans of the Book Scavenger series

Books aren't supposed to be dangerous. Are they?

Alex Harmon prefers running over sitting still reading. But when his aunt offers to pay him to point out the boring parts in her children's book, he figures it's an easy way to make ten bucks. The problem is that her book is about a grumpy frog and a prize-winning zucchini. It doesn't have only a few boring pages...the whole thing is a lost cause.

Alex gives his aunt some ideas to help her out--like adding danger and suspense. But books can't just be interesting. They also have to be believable. Soon Alex recruits his friends to help him act out scenes so he can describe all the important details. He's even getting plot twists from a mysterious stranger (who might also be a ghost). Too late, Alex discovers that being a real-life stunt double for a fictional character can land you in terrible trouble--even if your friends are laughing their heads off
