Author of the Month Jeff Anderson

School fundraising has never been more hilarious in Jeff Anderson's first novel for kids, Zack Delacruz: Me And My Big Mouth.

When he decides to stand up for another student who is being bullied, 12-year-old Zack Delacruz sets himself up to lead the sixth grade in their fundraiser for the school dance along side the bully. Things only get worse when it turns out that the top salesperson has been eating the chocolate, not selling it. Can Zack find a way to save the day?
