I'm Going to Be FamouseBook - 2014
Arlo Moore has resolved to break the world record for eating bananas-consuming seventeen in two minutes should be easy, right? Arlo Moore's favorite book of all time is TheGuinness Book of World Records, and as bananas are his favorite food, he has memorized the record for eating bananas. While gearing up to start his fifth grade year, Arlo suddenly has a crazy thought: He should break the world record for banana eating and become famous! His brother and sister think he's crazy for even trying, and they bet Arlo that he can't break the record in three weeks. Arlo hates when people tell him he can't do something, and so he agrees. Soon, he will be a world champion. It's going to take all of Arlo's concentration and all of his awesome banana-eating powers to break this record and win the bet-and maybe capture the attention of the pretty new girl in school, too. But when everyone starts betting on Arlo's chances of beating the record, his principal forbids him from training at school. With everyone against him, can Arlo still succeed and become famous?
