Cartboy and the Time Capsule by L. A. Campbell is a laugh-out-loud debut novel for young readers about sixth-grader Hal Rifkind-unfortunately nicknamed "Cartboy"-and his horribly historic, hilarious year. Hal hates history class-it literally bores him to tears. But his father is a big history buff, and unless Hal gets a good grade this year, he'll never get his own room. Sixth grade gets off to a horrible start when history teacher Mr. Tupkin gives the class an assignment to write journals that will be buried in a time capsule at the end of the year. Things get even worse when his dad makes him take his neighbor's old shopping cart to school, earning him the nickname "Cartboy." What else could possibly go wrong? Read Hal's journal to find out! Filled with photos, drawings, and timelines, Hal's time capsule journal chronicles a year in the life of the hopelessly hapless Cartboy.
