MUDSHARK
by
Gary Paulsen
A Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM

"...he'd been tripped. Everyone thought he was down for the count, flat on his back covered with mud. Just then, a runner-kicker-wrestler-mudfighter came too close to him, streaking downfield with the ball, and one of Lyle's [Mudshark's] hands snaked out and caught the runner by the ankle." from Mudshark

Mudshark was a cool guy. Not because he was lightning fast. Not even because he was so agile, so quick, and dressed so...well, cool. Mudshark knew he got his coolness from his thinking ability. He knew how to manage the electric power of his neurons, how to mold the electricity into ideas.

Mudshark could solve problems...his problems, his classmates problems, and even his principals' problems (not the least of which were the toxic teachers' restroom nor the gerbil from the science room that had made a break for it.)

Hop aboard for some fun in this short, 83-page hysterical novel about a school ...like yours?...by one of your favorite authors, Gary Paulsen.
