Oggie Cooder returns . . . this time showing what a party animal he can be (birthday party animal, that is)! It's the party of the year! Oggie Cooder's charving has already taken him to the top of the world. (Charving, if you didn't know, involves chewing and carving pieces of cheese.) But there's one place Oggie has never been allowed to go: Donnica Perfecto's pool. This year might be different. Donnica's mother has made her invite Oggie to a pool party. And Oggie couldn't be more excited. Not only will he finally make it into the pool, but there's also going to be mini hot dogs and a juggling bear. The only problem? Donnica does not want Oggie at her party. And she'll do anything to stop him from coming! But what she doesn't count on is the power of Oggie's charving, an unexpected visit from a local rock band, a creative use of a cherry picker, a dog that tweets like a bird, and a boy in a bear suit whose identity will change everything when it's revealed. Once again, Sarah Weeks has created a funny hero who won't let anything — not wimpiness, not adversity, not haiku contests — stand in his way.
