Summary
Robert is back for another round of hilarious adventures, and this time he's pitted against his archrival Susanne in a classroom contest. "People used to think a runny nose meant your brain was leaking." Third-grader Robert learns this and other wacky facts when he and his friend Paul start training to be contestants on The Instant Millionaire. When Robert discovers that he's too young to be on the show, he submits his teacher's name. Nothing goes as planned after that, but Robert tries his best to set matters straight. Fans of the previous Robert books will love this new story of the boy's antics as he gets in over his head once again.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 2-4. Seuling's books about the everyday adventures of young Robert Dorfman deliver easy-to-read text, a fast-moving plot, short chapters, and witty writing. In this story, third-grader Robert is enamored with the bits of information in the Weird and Wacky Facts books. He figures that if he memorizes all of the facts in every book in the series, he'll be able to appear on the Instant Millionaire show and win a fortune. Later in the novel, he comes to the conclusion that he has developed magical powers and can make things happen merely by wishing them. By the end of the story, however, he discovers that his string of good luck was not magical after all. Brewer adds to the laughs with his cartoon illustrations, featuring characters with big heads and even bigger hair. Another winning installment in a fun series. --Todd Morning"
