Chapter Book of the Day

Under Dogs: Three Novels

by Marcus Zusak

512 pages

Booktalk: From the author of The Book Thief, three books in one volume about the Wolfe brothers: The Underdog, Fighting Ruben Wolfe and Getting the Girl. The first book in this omnibus is also Zusak’s very first book, now published for the first time in the United States.

Snippet:

We were watching the telly when we decided to rob the dentist.

“The dentist?” I asked my brother.

“Sure, why not?” was his reply. “Do you know how much money goes through a dental surgery in a day? It’s obscene. If the prime minister was a dentist, the country wouldn’t be in the state it’s in right now, I tell you. There’d be no unemployment, no racism, no sexism. Just money.”
