Description:

"You have the right to remain silent." However... The fifth-grade girls and the fifth-grade boys at Laketon Elementary don't get along very well. But therealproblem is that these kids are loud and disorderly. That's why the principal uses her red plastic bullhorn. A lot. Then one day Dave Packer, a certified loudmouth, bumps into an idea -- a big one that makes him try to keep quiet for a whole day. But what does Dave hear during lunch? Agirl,Lynsey Burgess, jabbering away. So Dave breaks his silence and lobs an insult. Andthosewords spark a contest: Which team can saythe fewest wordsduring two whole days? And it's the boys against the girls. How do the teachers react to the silence? What happens when the principal feels she's losing control? And will Dave and Lynsey plunge the whole school into chaos? This funny and surprising book is about language and thought, about words unspoken, words spoken in anger, and especially about the power of words spoken in kindness...with or without a bullhorn. It's Andrew Clements at his best -- thought-provoking, true-to-life, and very entertaining.

Andrew Clements was born in 1949 and grew up in New Jersey and Illinois. After attending college and receiving his degree in English, Clements taught 4th and 8th Grade for seven years. But he didn't have a pemanent position, so when he was laid off, he moved onto the publishing world, and went from being an editor, to sales and marketing, to translating for several of the large publishing companies. Clements is well known for his picture book texts, but it was his middle school novel, Frindle, that was a breakthrough for his writing career. Frindle has won many awards, including the Georgia Children's Book Award, the Sasquatch Children's Book Award, the Massachusetts Children's Book Award, the Rhode Island Children's Book Award, and the Year 2000 Young Hoosier Book Award.
