Bradley Chalkers is a misfit, a liar and a bully -- a fifth grader without friends. The kids think he's a monster, and Bradley seems to agree. When he is sent to the new school counselor, she sees the likable Bradley beneath the monster. But just as she begins to build Bradley's self-confidence, the school board decides to replace her with a computer. Isolation, bravery and gradual acceptance are explored with great humor by the author, who also wrote the popular book Holes. Directed by American Theater Company's Artistic Director Damon Kiely. Recommended For children 8 and up.
