Annotations for Cartboy and the Time Capsule


Baker & Taylor
A story complemented by photos, drawings and timelines chronicles a year in the life of a hapless sixth-grader whose prospects for getting a room of his own are challenged by his poor history grades, a time-capsule assignment and his history-loving father's insistence that he drag a neighbor's old shopping cart to school.

In the tradition of Diary of a Wimpy Kid comes Cartboy and the Time Capsule by L.A. Campbell, a laugh-out-loud debut novel about sixth-grader Hal Rifkind--unfortunately nicknamed "Cartboy"--and his horribly historic, hilarious year.

Hal hates history class--it literally bores him to tears. But his father is a big history buff, and unless Hal gets a good grade this year, he'll never get his own room. Sixth grade gets off to a horrible 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 his dad makes him take his neighbor's old shopping cart to school, earning him the nickname "Cartboy." What else could possibly go wrong? Read Hal's 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.
