I Fooled You

By Johanna Hurwitz

How many different ways can ten leading middle-grade authors tell a story including the line "I fooled you"? Prepare to be surprised.

An arrogant prince tries to bluff his way out of paying the bridge troll s toll, only to find that honesty really is its own reward. Judy Moody dreams up her best-ever prank on Stink, but he finds a hilarious way to make her joke fall splat. And when a boy s grandfather plays an elaborate trick that has the whole town laughing at him, can he use it one day to big-time advantage? Edited by acclaimed children s author Johanna Hurwitz, this collection of stories all woven around the phrase 'I fooled you' range from a comic graphic tale about clever chimps to thought-provoking explorations of fairness, empathy, eccentricity, and the power of imagination. With stories by: David A. Adler, Eve Feldman, Douglas Florian, Matthew Holm, Johanna Hurwitz, Ellen Klages, Michelle Knudsen, Carmela A. Martino, Megan McDonald, and Barbara Ann Porte

  • Great classroom potential. The use of a common phrase in all the stories is the perfect vehicle to introduce writing to middle grade students
  • A great tie-in for April Fool's Day
  • Features a new Judy Moody and Stink story from Megan McDonald as well as a graphic story from Matthew Holm, the illustrator of the Baby Mouse books
