Book Review

Fourth-grader Calvin lives near the beach in Oahu with his mom and little sister. Mom says: “You’re the man of the house.” But Calvin’s not great at being the man of the house, or taking care of his responsibilities. He’s too busy having fun with his pals, and avoiding Tito, the bully.

Trouble Magnet is the first book in a new series for younger readers full of all the fun of growing up in Hawaii. It introduces a wonderful multicultural cast of characters, including Mr. Purdy, who calls his fourth-grade class Boot Camp; Uncle Scoop, who runs the lunch wagon at the beach; Ledward, Mom’s 6'7" boyfriend; and gorgeous, intimidating, 15-year-old Stella-from-Texas, who arrives to be the live-in babysitter—and to step all over Calvin’s turf.

From the Hardcover edition.

    The short story was a great read to my son. Enjoyed reading about Hawaii and boys getting in trouble. Really innocent tale.

    It's a great book but that's how you end a story ? It's good but it could've been better.

    Calvin Coconut:Trouble Magnet is one of the best books I have ever read. I met the author before in a writing festival I went to and he was one of the nicest person that I have ever met. In this book Calvin says "Ho!" a lot and so does the author. I remember him saying that the way Calvin Coconut got created was that he was based on what Graham had been like as he was as a boy. This book is awesome! Read it!!!!!!!!
