Down with the Dance Library Kit
Epic Book Trailer
Middle School Mayhem: Down with the Dance is the first book in this action-packed, hilarious series.
Meet Austin Davenport, whose fabulous luck landed him on this earth only eleven short months after his brother, Derek, putting them in the same grade. While Austin's brain power is unmatched, it appears as if his brother got all the athletic gifts and the family butt-chin, meaning their parents love Derek more than Austin, or so it seems.
Join Austin on his journey through the tumultuous waters of middle school as he navigates the swampy and undeodorized hallways and explores the depths of the cafeteria's seafood surprise.
Oh, and someone is plotting to take down the Halloween Dance, the one that Austin has his sights set on, so he can take Sophie Rodriguez, a girl way out of his league, but who doesn't seem to know it.
Can he stay one step ahead of the new principal who has it out for him? Will Austin figure out who the perpetrators are? Will he save the dance in time? Will he wear a diaper on a stakeout?
This first in a planned series of twelve will have you ROFLing like you never have before.
The funny and fast-paced nature of this series is meant for middle grade and early young adult readers.
Beware! This series has the tendency to turn reluctant readers into eager ones.
"C. T. Walsh is pure genius when it comes to writing from a Middle Schooler 's point of view!!"
"What a great book. Both my kids loved it!! Funny, appropriate for kids not in middle school, but relatable for those in middle school as well. Can’t wait to get them book 2."
"Move Over Wimpy Kid, there's a new kid in town. I'm now the coolest aunt for introducing my nephew to Austin Davenport."
"I am 9 years old. I have loved this book for the past couple of months I have had it. When I first started reading it I just couldn’t put it down. I can’t wait till my mom gets the other books in the series. Also don’t get me started with the jokes. They are amazing!"
"This book has EVERYTHING!! Young love, pre-teen angst, sibling rivalry (and hatred LoL), the dreaded school principal, and of course, the school rivalry. This book will draw you in, make you cry from laughing so hard, scratch your head as you contemplate some of the shenanigans going on, and beg to know when the next story comes out."
About C.T. Walsh
Besides writing fun, snarky humor and the occasionally-frequent fart joke, I love spending time with my family, coaching my kids’ various sports, and successfully turning seemingly unsandwichable things into spectacular sandwiches, while also claiming that I never eat carbs. I assure you, it’s not easy to do. I know what you’re thinking: this guy sounds complex, a little bit mysterious, and maybe even dashingly handsome, if you haven’t been to the optometrist in a while. And you might be right.
My goal with my writing is to engage young readers with fun and adventure. With so many competing forms of entertainment available to our kids (and so many of them mindless), I really try to provide a reading experience like no other.
I value the importance of combining fun with learning and life values. My stories are humorous and adventurous with strong characters and solid life lessons with some potty humor sprinkled in. You gotta give the kids what they want…Hey, it’s better to read fart jokes than to play video games, right?
