Ben Yokoyama and the Cookie of Perfection

Practice makes perfect, and Ben Yokoyama will settle for nothing less than perfection! A hilarious new Cookie Chronicles adventure that fans of Wimpy Kid or Dog Man will gobble up with gusto. When Ben's fortune cookie tells him that practice makes perfect , he refuses to settle for anything less. He demands better parents, superior hobbies, and a brand-new best friend, who might technically be a superhero. The pursuit of perfection is thrilling until Ben is forced to give up the things he loves most--including baseball, personal integrity, and his dog's enthusiastic kisses. Life lessons from a goldfish and a spine-tingling near-death experience help Ben realize that his flaws are also the keys to his greatest strengths--and that the people and things that make him happiest will always be perfectly imperfect.
