» Preview Video for Cartboy

In the tradition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, comes this laugh-out-loud debut novel about sixth grader Hal Rifkind and his horribly historic, hilarious year.

Sixth grade gets off to a terrible start when history teacher Mr. Tupkin gives the class an assignment to write journals that will be buried in a time capsule at the end of the year.

Things get even worse when Hal's dad makes him take his neighbor's old shopping cart to school, earning him the nickname, "Cartboy."

What else could possibly go wrong for Hal?

Read his journal to find out!

Filled with photos, drawings, and timelines, Hal's time-capsule journal chronicles a year in the life of the hopelessly hapless Cartboy.
