The Cookie Chronicles #1: Ben Yokoyama and the Cookie of Doom (Busload of Books Special Edition)
Meet Ben, a literal-minded kid with a big heart and an even bigger sweet tooth, who cracks open a fortune cookie and discovers that TODAY might be his last day on Earth! Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dog Man.
Live each day as if it were your last.
When Ben reads his fortune-cookie fortune, he's alarmed and inspired. Immediately, he begins drafting a bucket list of unfinished tasks and lifelong dreams (finish his 1000-piece model of the Taj Mahal, eat an entire cake, etc…). As Ben marches himself in and out of trouble, takes useful risks, and helps both his parents to see the bigger picture, readers discover how something that seems scary can instead be empowering—leading to friendships that might never have been made, neighbors that might never have been known, and apple pies that might otherwise never have been baked.
