Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Melonhead returns with rapid-fire narration and adventure. His overly doting mother goes to outlandish heights to feed her “darling boy” more vegetables. Melonhead finds a seemingly perfect way to avoid them without hurting her feelings, but the plan backfires dramatically. Meanwhile, the arrival of a new girl, Pip, invokes jealousy in his pal Lucy Rose and disrupts his circle of friends. Pip is funny and smart and uses a wheelchair. While the other children easily accept her disability, the adults needlessly and humorously hover until Pip sets them straight. Fans will welcome the solid addition to the series. Grades 3-5. --Suzanne Harold

More About the Author

Katy Kelly- Here's the Thing About Me!

I was born in Washington, DC and grew up on Capitol Hill, four blocks away from the capitol of the United States. I still live in Washington, DC.

Before I wrote books for kids I was a features reporter for USA Today. I've also worked at People magazine. The best thing about being a reporter is getting to meet all kinds of different people.

I have an artist husband and two fabulous daughters. Some of the things in the Lucy Rose and Melonhead books actually happened to our family. Like when the guinea pig gets stuck in the wall. Only in real life it was a hamster.

Melonhead is based on my brother and my five Melonheaded nephews.

Melonhead's friend, Sam, is a real boy.

I work at home in my pink ffice. It is decorated with pictures by children's book artists. When I am tired of being at home, I work at Politics & Prose, a completely excellent bookstore near my house.

I am not very sporty. And I am not very organized. Mostly, I like to draw and read books and take long walks with my friends, some of whom are children.

I have one brother and two sisters.

My favorite food is ice cream.

You can e-mail me if you want. My address is katykelly202@gmail.com I'll write back.

Melonhead strikes again in this hilarious book! Adam Melonhead's war on vegetables reaches new heights when his mother decides the family needs to eat more leafy greens and brightly hued roots-much to Adam's dismay. The book is fast paced and reads like it's right out of a young boy's busy brain. Such a fun read for a boy or a girl!

My son read this for his AR acelerated reader book. He HATES to read. That is why he gave it four stars. Lol. Just because it is a book. Leningrad is funny and gets into some trouble,but ultimately is respectful to his p a rents and cares about what they think. Too many books for kids today use potty humor and insults to parents to attract kids to read them. This book is better and teaches kids that mistakes happen and to own up to them. Looking forward to more books in this series.
