The 18th Emergency

(1973)
A novel by

 
Benjie and his friend Ezzie have escape plans for every emergency, including lion attacks and quicksand, but no clue what to do about the class bully

So what if Benjie "Mouse" Fawley likes practical jokes? He's a good kid who never meant to harm anyone. The same cannot be said for Marv Hammerman, a boy in Benjie's middle school who is as big as a high-schooler but has the temper of a two-year-old. When Benjie (in a fit of insanity) writes a joke about Marv for all to see, he soon realizes he's stumbled into the biggest emergency he's ever faced. Now Benjie must decide whether to stay at school and face a clobbering, or run off and live the rest of his life hiding in the woods. The 18th Emergency is a hilarious account of the trials of surviving the school bully.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Betsy Byars including rare images from the author's personal collection.
