"Written for middle graders, this book is hilarious for everyone!"--Jackie

Tad has an agenda: Survive seventh grade.

He also wants to: grow a mustache, get girls to notice him, and do a kickflip on his skateboard. . . .

But those are not the main reasons he started a blog. Tad just has a lot of important thoughts he wants to share with the world, like: "Here is the first thing I have learned about having a dog in your house: Don't feed them nachos. Not ever."

From the Emmy Award-winning head writer of "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" comes a hilariously illustrated "Year in the Blog" of awesomely nerdy seventh-grader Tad, based on a feature in "MAD" magazine.

Jackie says:
"Tim Carvell is the lead writer for The Daily Show, and has been writing Planet Tad for Mad Magazine for quite some time.  But now, at long last, comes the first volume in what I can only assume/hope will be a series, because this stuff is just wicked funny.  This is definitely a book a family could share with each other.  It's a one year blog/diary of Tad's life, observations, and ruminations of being 12/13 year old.  Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are fans--what more to you need to know?"
