It’s 5th Grade, and the Dudes are ready to rule the school.

The mission: Inflate the class economy, rock down the walls, race to the state capitol, and take over the governor’s office!

The Goal: To take possession of the most powerful dart gun ever invented! You won’t want to miss Deven’s hilarious election speech, Jayden’s Dude-themed birthday bash, or the battle with baby-stealing bandits! Sherwood will never be the same as these five friends take on downhill skiing, a talent show, a robot bidding war, and a spy mission to the principal’s office. Guard your garden gnome because Dudes are taking over!

The Dudes Adventure Chronicles is a series for kids 8-14 who can’t get enough madcap adventure and hilarious hijinks. The Dudes are a diverse group of preteen boys whose clever mischief turns their suburban neighborhood upside down. 

Terrific voice actor, Mark Sanderlin, delivers the funny for the whole family!

Classic humor without movie tie-ins or fart jokes! Appeals to middle grade readers who like funny, realistic fiction without a tacked-on message or ripped-from-the-headlines problem.

Praise for Save the Dudes:

"With one priceless, laugh-out-loud scenario after another, the mother and son team of Johnson and Reynolds delivers a fine tale…

"Hilarious comic mayhem, rounded out by affection and insight." --Kirkus Reviews

Classic middle grade humor with modern kids and realistic misadventures make for better-than-real-life hilarity. If you like Beverly Cleary's Henry Huggins or Barbara Robinson's The Worst Best Christmas Pageant Ever, you'll love the Dudes!

Warning to Parents: Anecdotal evidence suggests that readers of the Dudes may imagine some resemblance between the Dudes’ parents and their own.
