He twisted his arm and kissed his elbow. Now he's a girl. With a squeaky voice, and a sexist view over boys. He's gonna have to twist his arm again in order to be a running, jumping, playing boy!! What will Marvin do? How will he tell his friends he's a girl? How will he get out of the games mommy and daddy? How will Marvin turn back into a boy?
Find out by read the book. Must read. Also tune into the Marvin read post series. If you liked this one you'll like the others, like Why pick on me? A deadly case of puns. kidnapped at birth.

About the author (1993)

Louis Sachar was born in East Meadow, New York, moved to Southern California when he was nine, and now lives in Austin, Texas. Louis's first book for children, Sideways Stories from Wayside School was accepted for publication during his first week of law school. Although Louis graduated and passed the bar exam, he opted to be a full-time writer for children rather than a lawyer.

Louis met his wife, Carla, when he was a visiting author at a school in Texas. She was a counselor at the same school. They have a daughter, Sherre. Louis likes to play chess, cards, ski, play the guitar (and sing loudly), but mostly he likes spending time with Carla and Sherre.
