Hokey Pokey

Jerry Spinelli

Hokey Pokey is a place where kids play games, ride bikes, and enjoy life every day. There are no adults around except the Hokey Pokey Man who brings snowball treats to the kids. One day Jack, a “Big Kid” in town, discovers his bike has been stolen by a girl. He hears the whispered words “It’s time” and his world is forever changed. He feels different as he goes through the day discovering what the world is like beyond Hokey Pokey. Master storyteller Spinelli has created a tender, bittersweet story about growing up and accepting change. A fascinating tale from the award-winning author of Maniac Magee, Wringer, and Stargirl. Ages 9-11
