Joshua T. Bates in Trouble Again
"This easy chapter book picks up immediately after The Flunking of Joshua T. Bates and before the events in Joshua T. Bates Takes Charge. The youngster gets a mid-year promotion to fourth grade and then his problems really begin. His archenemy, Tommy Wilhem, is waiting for him and Joshua is determined to be cool and non-nerdy. Unfortunately, this leads him into unwise actions such as going into class with an unlit cigarette behind his ear and 'borrowing' his father's Swiss Army knife and taking it to school. The boy's insecurities are well drawn and right on target for the intended audience. His triumph over Tommy is...will be gratifying wish-fulfillment for similarly afflicted readers. Well written, with occasional, full-page, black-and-white drawings, this is a solid addition to the series".
