How to Train Your Dad Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

  • Information


Twelve-year-old Carl is fed up with his father's single-minded pursuit of an off-the-grid existence.

His dad may be brilliant, but dumpster-diving for food, scouring through trash for salvageable junk, and wearing clothes fully sourced from garage sales is getting old.

Increasingly worried by what schoolmates and a certain girl at his new school might think of his circumstances - and encouraged by his off-kilter best friend - Carl adopts the principles set forth in a puppy-training pamphlet to "retrain" his dad's mindset...a crackpot experiment that produces some very unintentional results.

This is a fierce and funny novel about family and untangling some of the ties that bind from middle-grade master Gary Paulsen.
