Discover all four books in the funny, heartfelt, and beloved Misfits series by Bunnicula author James Howe, together in a collectible paperback boxed set.

Sticks and stones may break our bones, but names will break our spirit.

Seventh grade isn’t easy, especially for the outcasts who get called names. But when misfits Bobby, Joe, Addie, and Skeezie find each other, they learn to fight for themselves and their friends. Bobby stands up and makes a difference. Joe finds the courage to be himself, no matter who’s watching. Outspoken Addie wonders if there’s a way to be true to who she is on the inside without becoming a target on the outside. And Skeezie’s life-changing summer brims with tough choices, love in all directions, and enough sweet potato fries to go around.

This honest and resonant must-have boxed set includes paperback editions of:
The Misfits
Totally Joe
Addie on the Inside
Also Known as Elvis
