The Defense of Thaddeus is an intriguing book. Written in scrapbook style, it tells the story of a boy named Thaddeus who has been put in ISS (in school suspension). Thaddeus, a rather strong headed boy, decided to write a defense to get himself out of ISS. Unfortunately though, Thaddeus has done everything the school is accusing him of, and more. From setting a priest’s robes on fire, to choking old ladies with oranges, Thaddeus is going to have to write a pretty good defense if he wants anyone to believe him. The Defense of Thaddeus is a hilarious story about a boy who causes chaos wherever he goes.
