The Transmogrification of Roscoe Wizzle by David Elliot
The cover of this book has been grabbing my attention for some time now, as well as the pretty weird title. It was a fantastic read–jam packed with twists and turns, mystery, humor and such a great example of a deep friendship between a boy and a girl. I’m not ruining the book by telling you what that huge word on the cover means (I had never heard it before myself): transmogrification means to transform into something new, usually grotesque. Hmmm…Roscoe Wizzle finds himself turning into a bug and doesn’t know what to do about it! Plus three other kids from the same town have disappeared right at the same time he starts to look like a bug. Are the two things related? And why on earth would a kid turn into an insect? Check it out to find out what happens in this great read.
