Fans of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library and humorous historical fiction will embrace this follow-up to My Near-Death Adventures (99% True!), which Publishers Weekly called an "exuberant first novel."

It is 1895 Michigan. But now, instead of helping out rough-and-tumble lumberjacks, Stanley Slater (aka Stan the Man) must go to school. And on top of that, he has to look after Cuddy, a younger boy, before and after school.

When his ne'er-do-well father shows up in town, Stan finally has a chance to meet the man he's dreamed about for so long. Plus, it will give Stan a chance to impress the infamous Captain Slater. (Stan is a whiz at impressing people, he doesn't mind saying.) But Captain Slater isn't quite what Stan expected. In fact, Stan isn't so sure he wants to be like his dad - Captain Slater - at all.

Praise for My Near-Death Adventures (99% True!)
"A knee-slapper of a debut. . . . 100 percent engaging." - Kirkus Reviews

"Hilarious and heartbreaking. . . . 99 - 100% fantastic." - Betsy Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal

An "exuberant first novel." - Publishers Weekly

"Stan's story is full of his hilarious misunderstandings and overactive imagination. Interspersed throughout are pictures and news clippings embellished with wisecrack remarks, speech bubbles, and the occasional mustache." - Booklist

"The humor and accessible format may make this a diverting quick pick for historical fiction fans." - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
