Review on Goodreads

With his 11th birthday—and Valentine’s Day—fast approaching, Aldo plans a guys-only party with absolutely no pink, lace, or hearts, thank you very much. But what will happen if the girls, who all seem to have a crush on Aldo’s friend, Danny, crash the party? In this story, told in part by Aldo’s friend-who-happens-to-be-a-girl, Bee, Aldo learns early that love means always having to say you’re sorry. The humorous plot and lively drawings in this laugh-out-loud book will captivate enthusiastic and reluctant readers alike.

This ninth installment in an A-to-Z alphabet series also includes a glossary of fun and challenging I words, such as inkling, irksome, and impervious.

"Five stars! (Ignoramus) is a very cute book, and I can see why the series is popular." — Shayla Williams, on Goodreads

"Just a quick note of thanks for a wonderful series that has thoroughly engaged my eight-year-old son. We purchased the first four books and it was love at first word for Nathan. He consistently tells people that it is one of his favorite series. I plan to buy copies for his teacher at the end of the year because he loves them so much."
— Heather Langlois
