Jim Benton - Dumbness is a Dish Best Served Cold

Dear Dumb Diary

Dumbness is a Dish Best Served Cold

Author: Jim Benton; Illustrator: Jim Benton

  • AGES 8 - 12 
  • Genre Fiction
An extra-special, extra-hilarious new diary in POB with full-color illustrations!Life at Mackerel Middle School is as dumb as ever, but Jamie Kelly may have finally found the key to fame, fortune, and fabulousness. The only problem? She has to come up with a recipe...that people would actually want to eat.Since Jamie's sophisticated observations about food include, "I think that if you're going to talk with your mouth full, it should be full of donuts. This way, the things you say will sound nicer, as they are covered with deliciousness molecules," this contest is guaranteed to be a hilarious disaster.Jamie still has no idea that anyone is reading her diary, so please, please, please don't tell her. And definitely don't tell her that she's the star of her very own Dear Dumb Diary movie, available on DVD and Blu-Ray. (Her glamorous ego might not be able to handle it.)
