Roscoe Riley Rules #5: Don't Tap-Dance on Your Teacher

illustrated by Brian Biggs

About the Book

The hilarious chapter book series about an accidental rule breaker from Katherine Applegate, Newbery Medal–winning and bestselling author of The One and Only Ivan and Crenshaw, returns with a fresh new cover from artist Brian Biggs and bonus material!

Roscoe loves to make noise and tap shoes make the best noise ever! But tap dancing? The big boys at his school say that’s just for girls. Roscoe promised his friend Emma that he would tap in the school talent show with her. When the teasing starts, will he keep his word?

Roscoe and his comical misadventures will appeal to fans of Megan McDonald’s Stink series; Nancy Krulik’s George Brown, Class Clown series; and Dan Gutman’s My Weirder School series. This repackaged edition now includes Roscoe Riley’s Time-Out Activities, featuring lists, games, and more.

Critical Praise

Praise for the ROSCOE RILEY series: “Applegate perfectly captures the voice of kids in this fast-paced, funny title. Children will love the short chapters, kid ingenuity, and comical illustrations.” —School Library Journal

“Applegate’s writing is strong and lively, and the short sentences, funny situations, and frequent appearance of pictures will make this series an easy sell to novice readers. Adult readers-aloud will also appreciate the understated humor of Roscoe’s narrative and nod in recognition at the goings-on.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Roscoe is an appealing, lively kid whose story is both entertaining and thought-provoking, and Biggs’expressive pencil drawings add to the humor” —ALA Booklist
