by Karla Oceanak

Bailiwick Press, 2012
review copy provided by the publisher
It's hard to believe we're already to the sixth book in the Aldo Zelnick series! I have a student who is waging a one-man boycott of our school cafeteria over the very same issue that moves Aldo and his friends to protest -- no more pizza day on Tuesdays!
This volume is sure to please food lovers and finicky eaters alike, and the feast of words that begin with F fairly overflows! Aldo and his fellow endomorph of a dad get a little more serious about their health and weight, and Aldo serves up a steaming banquet of remorse when his protests get a little out of hand.
Another must-read for Aldo Zelnick fans, and also for the Nate the Great and Wimpy Kid crowd.
