Melonhead by Katy Kelly
Reviewed by Mrs. Bruno at Arongen
Ten-year-old Adam Melon is known by his classmates as Melonhead. He is an active boy who gets himself into various predicaments from his impulsive behavior. Some of his quirky ideas, like getting his foot caught in a tree, bringing a snake home that gets loose and climbing on rooftops, gets him into heaps of trouble. However, there is a reason for his actions. At school there is a contest for students who can design an invention using recycled parts. Will Melonhead and his best friend Sam win the contest and make it to first place? Can these budding inventors stay out of trouble long enough to develop their invention? Will their invention come from some lessons they learn along the way?
