Summary
Archer Magill has spent a lively, funny five years of elementary school on the lookout for role models. Three of the best are in his own family, his grandpa, the great architect; his dad, the great car remodeler; and Paul, his uncle, who is just plain great. These are the three he wants to be. Archer, along the way, Archer finds a fourth: Mr. McLeod, a truly great teacher. And one who becomes a bit of a celebrity, along with Argus, his army dog. But now here comes middle school, and a whole lot of change. Archer wonders how much change has to happen before his voice does! Archer does not see too far ahead (even though he is watching always), and so he seems to be taken by surprise regularly. Then a really big surprise when he is the best man at the wedding of two of his role models. But that gets ahead of the story. In pages that ripple with laughter, there are a few tears as well. And plenty of insights about the bewildering world of adults, made by a boy on his way to becoming the best man he can be. -- Provided by publisher, taken from container
