Paulie Pastrami Achieves World Peace

By James Proimos (Hardcover Book, 2009)
Paulie Pastrami can't whistle, he has trouble matching his socks, and he is usually picked last in sports. But he plans to achieve world peace before he turns eight.

Through simple acts of kindness--from reading to the trees and being nice to his little sister to cheering up the school principal and sharing cupcakes with strangers--Paulie learns that spreading peace isn't that hard after all.

  • "The simple cartoon drawings, filled in with color, have attitude and personality that matches the tone of the text. Creative page layouts and artsy fonts give the illustrations added energy. This is a great read-aloud, especially for a unit about social issues or character development." -School Library Journal

    "A plucky seven-year-old kid armed with a boatload of determination and a whole lot of heart...Paulie shines." -Kirkus

    Praise for The Day the Dog Dressed like Dad

    "Zany cartoons tell the tale of a dog who takes over when Dad's out of town. Good-naturedly skewering the stereotypical father figure, the book shows that dads and dogs do things that are not so unalike..." --Child Magazine

    * Child magazine's Best Children's Book Awards 2004

    "Full-page cartoon illustrations in watercolor and black markers carry out the text's absurdity." --SLJ
