I thought this book was very cute. It is the third book in a series by Janet Tashjian (the other too are My Life as a Book and My Life as a Stuntboy.) Derek Fallon is in 6th grade. There a new kid in his class named Umberto and he isn't nice to him but his is nice to everyone else. Umberto has a disability and lives in a wheelchair. Derek starts going to a cartoon club after school and Umberto joins the club too. When Derek creates his own cartoon/comic, Umberto copies the comic but with different characters and more detail in the pictures. But, everyone gives Umberto the credit. With Derek's friends, Matt and Carly, they stick together and help each other out.
