"Eeeuuwww! You have kooties!"  Donald didn't quite understand what Louisa means by this but he could tell by the way the other kids were acting that it wasn't a good thing.  It's hard enough to be the new kid in town.  It's even harder when you are being teased everyday.  Donald and his new friend Nate do everything they can think of to stop Louisa but nothing seems to work.  So they decide they must take desparate measures and have no choice but to kill her -- with kindness, that is.  To find out what happens, read KING OF THE KOOTIES by Debbie Dadey.
