 About the Book 

Hes really at sea this time As the Henry family sets sail for a new life on Cape Hatteras, fourth-grader Jack is struggling to chart a course between his parents contradictory advice on making friends and influencing people. Just tell people whatMoreHes really at sea this time As the Henry family sets sail for a new life on Cape Hatteras, fourth-grader Jack is struggling to chart a course between his parents contradictory advice on making friends and influencing people. Just tell people what they want to hear, Dad advises. Just tell the truth, Mom cautions. Jack finds there are no easy answers as he drifts through his crazy school year, falling desperately in love with his young teacher, getting suckered into becoming a bad-behavior spy for the principal, and being forced to make a presentable pet out of a duck with backward feet. Indeed, with an airheaded, air-guitar-playing neighbor the closest thing to a friend, and a judgmental older sister his relentless enemy, its all he can do to stay afloat.This colorful and comic new collection of interrelated stories featuring the authors hapless alter ego is a prequel to the other four books in the Jack Henry series, praised by Booklist for their hilarious, exquisitely painful, and utterly on-target depiction of the life of an adolescent and preadolescent boy.
