Nate knows that his new friend Donald is a little different, but he can't believe that a fourth grader like Donald never heard of kooties! Donald doesn't even realize that he's being insulted by Louisa, the class bully, when she names him King of the Kooties -- and that's just the beginning of Louisa's war against Donald. So Nate decides to teach Donald to defend himself, realizing that with a student as gentle as Donald, it's going to have to be a war of wits instead of a war of fists.Fans of Debbie Dadey's bestselling Bailey School Kids series will eagerly look forward to reading this clever and light-hearted look at the often dreaded schoolyard pecking order.
