Newbery Medal–winning and bestselling author Katherine Applegate’s hilarious chapter book series about an accidental rule breaker returns with a fresh new look from artist Brian Biggs!
When his classmates can’t sit still for a big performance at school, Roscoe Riley takes matters into his own hands with a liberal dose of Super-Mega-Gonzo Glue—which his mom calls the don’t-you-dare glue because Roscoe isn’t supposed to use it. Roscoe doesn’t mean to break the rules—he just can’t help himself! After all, his teacher’s job might be at stake and desperate times call for desperate measures.
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 includes Roscoe Riley’s Time-Out Activities, featuring lists, games, and more.

Roscoe Riley Rules #1: Never Glue Your Friends to Chairs
Welcome to Time-Out
Hey! Over here!
It's me. Roscoe.
Welcome to the Official Roscoe Riley Time-out Corner.
Want to hang out with me?
I have to warn you, though. We're going to be here for a while.
See, I kinda got in some trouble today.
Kids have to follow so many rules!
Sometimes my brain forgets to remem-ber them all.
It's not like I try to find ways to get in trouble. It's just that trouble has a way of finding me.
Truth is, I'm just a normal, everyday kid like you.
My favorite food is blue M&M's. My favorite sport is bed jumping. My favorite color is rainbow.
And my most not-favorite thing is lima beans.
See? Like I said. Just a normal, everyday kid.
A normal, everyday kid who sometimes gets into trouble.
Like today. I was just trying to help out my teacher.
How was I supposed to know you shouldn't glue people to chairs?
With Super-Mega-Gonzo Glue?
You've done that, haven't you?
