Okay, if you are still with us, here is what we can
share: Russell is a middle schooler; he excessively
doodles in his spiral notebook; he has two best friends,
Charlotte and Preston; he is not-so-great at sports; and
he is pond scum. Nicknamed "Swamp Kid" by his classmates,
Russell has algae for hair, a tree trunk of a right arm,
webbed toes, and a parsnip for a thumb. Also, Russell's
favorite meal is sunlight. Also, a frog lives in his arm.
In this notebook, Russell details, in both hilarious text
and green-tinted illustrations (complete with ketchup
stains!), what it's like to be different, to be
comfortable in his own skin (no matter how slimy), to
discover his true talents, to avoid the intense stare of
Mr. Finneca (his suspicious science teacher), and to find
humor in the everyday weird.
This is The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid by writer and
illustrator Kirk Scroggs, and you'll never look at the
bayou the same way again.
