Matt Sprouts and the Curse of the Ten Broken Toes (Volume 1)

Regular price $12.99

After accidentally injuring his neighbor, Matt Sprouts thinks he has "the Curse," a hometown myth that ruins middle schoolers' lives. To defeat the Curse, Matt decides he needs to solve the mystery—and FAST!—but that's not easy to do when you're entering middle school, keeping track of your little brother, trying to defeat the best soccer team, and oh yeah, not breaking any more toes.

Eleven-year-old Matt Sprouts is in big trouble. He didn't mean to hurt his neighbor Jenna with that awesome martial arts move—it just happened! Blame it on morning cartoons or Jenna's lack of coordination. Any­ways, getting grounded is the worst thing that could happen, right?

Wrong.

After the incident spirals into a series of downright unfortunate events, it's decided that Matt has contracted "the Curse," a hometown myth that has ruined the lives of middle schoolers before him. And as if the Curse weren't enough, entering sixth grade proves to be just as mysterious—there's a strange girlfriend, wacky teachers, and . . . c'mon, can Matt's toes stop breaking PLEASE?!

Matt decides to take matters into his own hands. Now he just has to break the Curse . . . before all his bones break.
