Anyone anywhere near Garden Street knows enough to stay away from the Night Riders. They're trouble, they're up to no good, they're just downright dangerous. But when they steal Archie's brother Oggie's prized possession, Archie has to get it back. After all, Archie is the man of the house since his parents separated. Luckily, Archie is a writer. Not only can he go after Oggie's favorite red wallet, but he can distract Oggie with his Mole People stories while he's doing it. Even so, it will still take all of Archie's determination and courage-and unquestionably, his writer's wisdom-to come out on top. Janet Taylor Lisle once again creates a world for young readers that is right on the mark. How I Became a Writer and Oggie Learned to Drive is fast-paced, fun, adventure-filled-and gives witty insight into the process of writing.
