Doubleday,Dell Paperback

Marv Green likes to build things that seem purposeless to others, like an igloo made of bricks in his back yard. His teachers consider him stupid, and his brilliant older sister, whom he admires more than anyone else in the world, calls him a failure. What will become of a boy who is part dreamer, part nuisance, part fool, and perhaps, part genius?”

New York Times:

“ … a charmer.”
School Library Journal: “… poignant, humorous … fun reading.”
