Dirtball Pete

A new take on the dirty kid phenomenon, Dirtball Pete by Eileen Brennan shows that Pete’s dirt is only on the surface, and some very special talents can emerge from under all that grime. While this isn’t the book to help get your kids in the tub, it is a fun story and begs the discussion on not judging a book by its cover.  Dirtball Pete is a true diamond in the rough.
