CURSED! David was only trying to be cool when he helped some other boys steal an old lady’s cane. But when the plan backfires, he is the one whom she ‘curses’. Now David can’t seem to do anything right. The cool kids taunt him and his only friends are weirdos. He even walks into Spanish class with his fly unzipped! And when he finally gets his nerve up to ask out a cute girl, his trousers fall down midway! But is this the curse at work or is David turning into a total loser? Another witty and very clever tale by the master storyteller Louis Sachar. Other titles in this series are THERE’S A BOY IN THE GIRLS’ BATHROOM and DOGS DON’T TELL JOKES.
