A boy named Joey Kavinsky writes notes in his notebook each day of the week.
“Big crabs dig holes everywhere,” Joey writes on Wednesday at the beach.
Cindy, his older sister picks on him because of his writing.
“Dumb dumbs like her don’t understand me,” Joey writes about Cindy on Thursday.
Every day is a new note, never repeating one.
Fridays are Joey’s favorite days to write because he always has plans on the weekends to look foreword to.
Great days are written about most vividly.
Harry is Cindy’s annoying boyfriend.
Ingrid is Cindy’s annoying best friend.
Joey writes about how gross and rude they are.
Kids Joey’s age aren’t very nice to him, so he doesn’t have many friends.
Long days result in boring notes.
Monday comes again.
Nothing out of the ordinary happens, so he just imagines what could have happens and writes that down.
On Tuesday, Joey brings his notebook for Show-And-Tell and reads some of his notes to the class.
Peter is a teacher’s pet in class but when it’s recess, he and his friends make fun of Joey and his notebook.
Quietly at lunch, Peter steals Joey’s notebook from his backpack, runs over to the trash can, and yells to Joey, “Come get your notebook, Weirdo!”
Right before Peter drops the notebook in the trash, Joey jumps up from his seat and runs over to Peter, but he’s too late.
Somewhere, deep in the trash can, Peter dropped the notebook.
Trying to dig for his notebook, Joey was cover in trash and a sea of laughter erupted at his poor attempt.
Unclean was Joey’s notebook when he found it.
Very much of his notes were ruined.
Wetter and wetter his eyes became and soon they were overflowing with water.
Xavier, Joey’s one and only friend, comforted him as he slowly walked back to his seat with a hung head and a heavy heart.
“You know,” Xavier offered, “ we can always report him to the principal for stealing and destroying your property.”
“Zere’s no use,” Joey replied through sobs and a stuffy nose, “no one would believe me over The Teacher’s Pet.”

A big crab digs every found ground hole in Joey Kavinsky’s long Monday notes openly. Peter quietly resists sending the unread very worn xi zing.
