Calvin Coconut, Trouble Magnet
by Graham Salisbury

A Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

"'Being the man of the house meant responsibility. I wasn't so good at that."
Calvin in Calvin Coconut, Trouble Magnet

Fun and trouble just seemed to follow Calvin Coconut wherever he went. Calvin It wasn't always his fault, but it just seemed to find him. Calvin Coconut really was a Trouble Magnet. Even when he saved the life of a centipede, trouble multiplied.

He became the man of the house when he was 7 years old. That was because his father, Little Johnny Coconut, legally changed the whole family's names to Coconut, and then left to become a famous Las Vegas singer. Now, being the man of the house means Calvin has to be responsible, which isn't easy for a trouble magnet.

A series of hysterical situations arising from real-life situations will keep you rolling on the floor laughing and nodding you head with understanding. You've been in some of those situations yourself.

This easy, relaxing story, told in the first person by Calvin, will become an instant favorite!
