Waiting on Wednesday: Pottymouth and Stoopid by James Patterson/ Chris Grabenstein

Pottymouth and Stoopid by James Patterson/ Chris Grabenstein. A Middle School Story. 305 p. Jimmy Patterson Books/ Little, Brown and Company, June 12, 2017. 9780316349635.

Publisher synopsis: Tired of being bullied, middle-school underdogs "Pottymouth" and "Stoopid" finally fight back with the power of funny.
David and his best friend Michael were tagged with awful nicknames way back in preschool when everyone did silly things. Fast-forward to seventh grade: "Pottymouth" and "Stoopid" are still stuck with the names—and everyone in school, including the teachers and their principal, believe the labels are true.
So how do they go about changing everyone's minds? By turning their misery into megastardom on TV, of course! And this important story delivers more than just laughs—it shows that the worst bullying doesn't have to be physical...and that things will get better.

Patterson's Middle School series is by far the most popular series in my library. The shelf is always empty and the waiting lists are long. It just occurred to me that the collection will probably need replacing soon as the books are being loved to death.
