Download the Kindle version of Harley P. Davidson's Loony Bin for free today. Happy birthday to Ken Derby!

“Don’t read this book if you are nervous about falling off a chair or out of bed when you are reading. This is a very funny story and sure to be a big hit!” —JOHANNA HURWITZ, award-winning author of more than sixty popular books for children

FROM MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"... readers in grades 3-6 will also discover the Loony Bin to be one of the liveliest, most unpredictable reads about school to land on their desks in quite some time. There's absolutely nothing boring - or predictable - about Harley P. Davidsun's Loony Bin: even the most reluctant reader will become immersed in the whimsical exploits of teachers and students, and will find this to be a compelling page-turner." - D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

Harley Patrick Davidsun, the zany biker/rocker/teacher dude from The Top 10 Ways to Ruin the First Day of School, is back! And his classroom is not what one would call “traditional.” He’s nicknamed it “The Fourth Grade Loony Bin,” and that’s exactly what it is, especially when he pits the boys against the girls in a contest to win a ride on his chopped motorcycle. Humorous events – ranging from a flatulence test to Kiss-A-Mania – mean you'll never know what's going to happen next. So step into the Loony Bin and find out who wins the wacky contest. You'll be glad you went along for the ride!

WARNING! Many things in this story are totally outrageous, and adults will say that such things could never happen in real life. But what do they know? Maybe somewhere, in some distant school, there really is a teacher like Harley P. Davidsun. At least, let’s hope so.
