Publisher’s Synopsis: Why would anyone need six thousand doughnuts?

Big family…little house… Fifth-grader Abe Mitchell is fed up with sharing. All he wants is something to call his own. And he just might get it when he finds a loophole in the fine print of a doughnut shop coupon. Abe thinks it entitles him to a fresh-baked mountain of crullers, dunkers, and chocolate-frosteds. But cashing in means war with Marlene Paczki, the daughter of the doughnut shop owner and Abe’s new crush.

My Review

This is just the type of book that children will love to read again and again. The children will be drawn to the cute illustrations with the funny expressions. There is nothing more enticing to middle grade boys and girls than this silly kind of humor.

The story is narrated by a little boy named Abe who has a big family and a small house. He has three sisters and twin brothers. They’re all forced to live upstairs in the attic room, because their cousin Celia is moving in. She’s a college student who lost her dorm room and takes the girl’s room. They all end up together with a sheet curtain hanging between the two sides of the room.

Abe’s dad has a cup of coffee with a peel-off reward for a free doughnut. On the back of the reward card some legal words say that it is the equivalent of 1/20th of a penny. Abe comes up with the idea that this means he should be able to buy 6,000 doughnuts with only $3. He and his student-lawyer cousin show up at the doughnut store and try to cash in. The owner says no and and after some arguing the owners daughter, Marlene throws doughnuts at Abe. Then, everyone in the restaurant gets involved in a huge food fight.

After a video of this food fight goes viral, the Judge Sally tv show offers to bring the two sides on to settle the argument. Celia is going to serve as Abe’s lawyer. The doughnut shop owner has a lawyer given to him by the doughnut store chain, and they are countersuing Abe. This could turn out well or it could be a disaster. What do you think will happen? You’ll want to get this one for your children or grandchildren, because it’s really funny!
