The AWESOME, Almost 100% True Adventures of Matt & Chad by Alan Silberberg

"Are seventh-graders Matt and Craz ahead of their time or just weird? Careful Matt Worfle and crazy Larry Crazinski make an awesome cartooning team, but no one pays attention to their work until Matt gets a magic pen and ink from Drawbetternow.com. Just as predicted, the cartooning kit brings their work to life. But the effects are disastrous: a horrible date night at the movies, aliens running student council, and killer bees chasing them down the halls of Kilgore Junior High, not to mention their English teacher's sudden visit to the world of Treasure Island and the transformation of Craz's large, messy family into one where he is an only child. Fast-paced action, humor, and occasional cartoons will keep readers engaged in this zany story, a combination of middle-school realism and wish fulfillment. But there is some depth to this tale, too, as both boys come to realize what they value in their families and in each other. A read with one goal on its mind: entertainment." Booklist Review
