It’s the summer before 5th grade, and that means a ninja stealth picnic, supervillain jail, and a zombie apocalypse. The Dudes are five friends who set out to save one of their number from the peril of private school. But code-names, battle training, and a campout of doom don’t help as much as you’d think they would.
Besides that, the girl next door has a teacup-sized pit bull, Tyler’s mom has banned “screen time”, and there’s the rising cost of fake blood. Can the Dudes use inadvisable stunts and madcap plans to save the day? That’s how they roll!

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…
"…the story is given depth by emotional challenges each friend must face, described with subtlety.
"Readers will likely be eager to read the next adventure.
"Hilarious comic mayhem, rounded out by affection and insight." --Kirkus Reviews
Spoilers: Classic humor without movie tie-ins or fart jokes!
Appeals to kids who like funny, realistic fiction without a tacked-on message or ripped-from-the-headlines problem. The perfect read for boys who will run a mile from an "award-winning novel".
Warning: The Dudes’ insane take on parents, school, and the PTA just might be catching.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that readers of the Dudes may imagine some resemblance between the Dudes’ parents and their own.
Makes a great gift or a perfect stocking stuffer.
Hilarious read-a-loud for the whole family.
