Publisher’s Synopsis: Why would anyone need six thousand doughnuts? Big family…little house… Fifth-grader Abe Mitchell is fed up with sharing. All he wants is something to call his own. And he just might get it when he finds a loophole in the fine print of a doughnut shop coupon. Abe thinks it entitles him to a fresh-baked mountain of crullers, dunkers, and chocolate-frosteds. But cashing in means war with Marlene Paczki, the daughter of the doughnut shop owner and Abe’s new crush.

As soon as I read the description of this book, I really wanted to review it and it didn't disappoint. The book was interesting, humorous and age-appropriate. I felt like this book really hit the mark. The author does a great job with the pace of the story. There was never a dull moment and the story was easy-to-read. The scenes ranged from crazy antics, drama, and heart-warming "turning points". The scenes really stood out to me in this book. The author does a good job at describing and creating scenes that stand out. It's funny, a little bit ridiculous, and yet, there's a lesson woven in about relationships with others, consequences, and sharing. This book has everything and it's a kid-friendly chapter book. Boys and girls would both enjoy this fun book. The author does a good job with developing fun characters and side-characters. The characters were unique and easily to visualize and imagine. The illustrations were attractive and fun. This book would be a fun summer read for kids, and it would also be a fun book to read out loud to kids. I would like to see more of these characters in another book. I recommend checking out this book for your kids!
