Nina Peanut: Creative Genius

by Sarah Bowie
More Formats and Editions
Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid, here is a witty and humorous story about a girl’s claim to fame and her journey toward self-discovery. 
Nina Peanut runs a very serious, very amazing video channel; so why are her grandmother and her best friend, Brian, her only viewers? (Hint: it might have something to do with her obsessions with quirky stuff like a potato with a human face.) Nina isn't as popular as queen bee Megan Dunne, whose own channel, featuring her incredibly trained (and perfectly coifed) poodle, gets thousands of views a day! But when Nina’s cat accidentally turns into the star of one of Megan's videos, Nina realizes she just might have the chance to chase her dreams. But as Nina goes down the road of stardom, she starts to question whether or not fame is worth the price she’s paying.
"Skillfully balancing lighthearted entertainment with poignant observations on youthful experiences in the digital age, Bowie crafts a compelling story for readers navigating their own online and offline worlds." —Publishers Weekly

"With absurd, offbeat humor and bold, psychedelically colored artwork that perfectly matches the off-the-wall high jinks, Scroggs' laugh-packed middle school story nicely balances the humor with a believable array of emotions to drive the story forward."—Booklist
