Framed by Gordon Korman

Framed is his new book about Griffin Bing (The Man with the Plan) and friends.

When he was 12 years old, Gordon Korman wrote his first book, This Can't be Happening at Macdonald Hall for a coach who suddenly found himself teaching 7th grade English. He took that experience and created a book out of it, too - Sixth Grade Nickname Game -  in which Mr. Huge was based on that 7th grade teacher.

Gordon Korman currently lives on Long Island with his wife and three children.

Griffin Bing's new principal doesn't like him. And Griffin doesn't like the boot camp football atmosphere the new principal has brought. Griffin manages to stay out of trouble -- until a Super Bowl ring disappears from the school's display case, with Griffin's retainer left in its place. Griffin has been framed! Unfortunately, the Man doesn't have a Plan - and everything his team tries to find out who really took the ring backfires. Griffin ends up in an alternate school, then under house arrest, and finally with an electronic anklet - with no way to prove his innocence! Griffin smells a rat - but will he be able to solve the mystery in time?

Ages 9 & up.

Hilarity ensues as Griffin's team once more pulls off a heist...trying to break the animals back into a (better) zoo!

After a mean collector named Swindle cons him out of his most valuable baseball card, Griffin Bing must put together a band of misfits to break into Swindle's compound and recapture the card. There are many things standing in their way -- a menacing guard dog, a high-tech security system, a very secret hiding place, and their inability to drive -- but Griffin and his team are going to get back what's rightfully his . . . even if hijinks ensue.

This is Gordon Korman at his crowd-pleasing best, perfect for readers who like to hoot, howl, and heist.

Ages 9 & up.
