George Brown, Class Clown!


Introducing George Brown, Class Clown- the new book series I'm illustrating for Grossett Dunlap (a division of Penguin)! The books center around George trying to fit into a new school and to behave himself despite his past reputation as a troublemaker and class clown. But he is victim to the Super Burp- a humongous belch that makes him do weird and crazy stuff at the worst possible times. The first two books Super Burp and Trouble Magnet are out now. The third book in the series, World's Worst Wedgie will be in bookshops next month. Check 'em out in all of their belchy (and Blecha) glory!

Email a Classic, Long, Frog, Ripper, or Super Burp to special someone at the George Brown, Class Clown website.

The book covers-

The first day at a new school is always the hardest, right? No, not always as George finds out the hard way. On the second day at . . . Sugarman Elementary School, he is suddenly seized by uncontrollable burps, burps so loud they practically break the sound barrier, burps that make him do wild and crazy stuff and land him in trouble with a capital T. One thing is for sure: these are not normal burps, they are magic burps – and they must be stopped! But how?
