Ten-year-old Aldo lives with his family in Colorado.

He's not athletic like his older brother; he's not a rock hound like his best friend; and he is none too fond of the outdoors--but that doesn't mean he doesn't have a passion.

Aldo is passionate about bacon. Back at school adjusting to life in the 5th grade, Aldo is embarrassed about his artistic abilities.

He has always underplayed his creative talent at school; but when he is around his cute new art teacher he suddenly finds himself behaving strangely.

He loses the ability to speak when she's around, volunteers to skip recess so he can clean paintbrushes, and finds himself working harder than ever before in a daring attempt to win the school art contest.

The humorous plot and lively drawings in this book will captivate both enthusiastic and reluctant young readers who will identify with Aldo's all-too-familiar predicaments.

This fourth installment in an A-to-Z alphabet series features a vocabulary-building glossary of fun and challenging words starting with the letter D, such as debacle, doofus, and defenestrate.
