Raymond Dunne may be a sickly, unpopular kid, but he's a sickly, unpopular kid with big plans! Check out his adventures in King of the Lost and Found.

Author: John Lekich

Raymond Dunne knows how it feels to be left out. Kidzworld checks out the world of this lonely nerd, and what he does to take charge of his fate!

It Ain't Easy Bein' Sneezy

Raymond seems to make people uncomfortable. He sneezes too much, has nosebleeds and even faints. There's not much he can do to change his sickliness, but he can make himself more popular. All he needs is a plan! He starts compensating for his weirdness by joining Hargrave High's leadership program - and lives to help out around campus. Maybe a bit too much.

Losing It

As part of his do-gooder activities, Raymond runs the lost and found. When it's threatened by a distinct lack of stuff being lost at the school, Raymond gets desperate and starts stealing stuff to ensure the owners will come looking for it at his precious lost and found. Can this possibly work out well for Raymond?


A Little Help from My Friends

Raymond's luck begins to change when he's befriended by one of the most popular guys in school, transfer student Jack Alexander. Raymond goes from being an unknown to the leader of a secret social club. With his new social status bolstering his confidence, Raymond finds the courage to do all kinds of things he's never done before - like approach his crush and stick up for his fellow nerds. But will he lose all of his hard-won status when his underground society is threatened? You'll have to read King of the Lost and Found to find out!


The Bottom Line

King of the Lost and Found is a hilarious read that any kid (popular or not) will be able to relate to. The story never gets dull and has all sorts of surprising turns (hidden treasure, anyone?), and outrageous characters like a zany millionaire and a hamster named Houdini. A guaranteed good time!
