Short Description

Big family…little house… Fifth-grader Abe Mitchell is fed up with sharing. All he wants is something to call his own. And he just might get it when he finds a loophole in the fine print of a doughnut shop coupon. Abe thinks it entitles him to a fresh-baked mountain of crullers, dunkers, and chocolate-frosteds. But cashing in means war with Marlene Paczki, the daughter of the doughnut shop owner and Abe’s new crush.

Author Biography

THOMAS TOSI is a writer/filmmaker who, together with his wife, Heidi, has produced an award-winning children's website, educational multimedia games, and dramatic films which have aired on national television, PBS affiliate stations, and screened in numerous film festivals. He was born and raised in New Hampshire, where he and Heidi still reside. He takes pride in the fact that they now live in a solar-powered home where they grow and can organic vegetables.

Illustrator Biography

MEAGHAN TOSI, after being born on April Fools’ Day in New Hampshire, has collected a BFA from Laguna College of Art and Design. She illustrated this book and the graphic novel "Squashed" alongside author Thomas Tosi. She has also self-published "DWEEDY: The Imagined Adventures of My Deceased Cat." She now lives in Portland, Oregon, for the art, coffee shops, vegan food, and the constantly lingering smell of rain.


“An energetic romp through a young boy’s comedic quest and a warmly told tale of youth and family…The black-and-white line drawings by Meaghan Tosi, the author's daughter, are delightful, featuring images that employ the same humorous exaggeration and mock-serious tone that pervade the text.”
“Reminded me of FRINDLE but steers in a more humorous direction.”
—Bookworm for Kids
“Packed with family shenanigans (his twin brothers could give ARTEMIS FOWL a run for top evil mastermind), the terror of girl/boy relationships in upper elementary school, a seemingly unending string of disasters and mistaken intentions, and even an appearance on a reality TV courtroom show, SIX THOUSAND DOUGHNUTS is sure to have readers laughing out loud and cringing in sympathy as Abe pursues his prize.”
—The Fairview Review
“This would be a fun book for parents or classrooms to read out loud to one another.'s full of fun, over-the-top (yet still entirely realistic) scenarios.”
—Shooting Stars Mag
“All in all, a charming tale with a curious storyline, a varied cast of characters to love, and a delicious conclusion that definitely does not disappoint!”
—Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers
“This book isn't just about math. Abe is a fifth grader and is discovering his own feelings for a girl for the first time. Yup, it is a coming of age story too but it is hilarious.”
—Crafty Moms Share
“This book has everything and it's a kid-friendly chapter book. Boys and girls would both enjoy this fun book.”
—Life Is What It's Called
“A wildly entertaining illustrated chapter book for anyone who loves to be amused and doesn't mind a little madness.”
—Icefairy's Treasure Chest
“This is the perfect humorous book geared for those reluctant readers who think there is nothing fun to read. I laughed out loud…”
—J.R.’s Book Reviews
