Who is this kid with the funny name? Well, that depends on who you ask. Everybody who knows Melvin - his mom, his dad, his best friend Jimmy, his dog - even Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the big ugly monster with three eyes who lives in his closet have a different opinion. This original and riotous picture book has a lot to say - not only about Melvin, but also about perspective, point of view, and a six-and-a-half-year-old's place in the world.
