This Scholastic classic is now available in a bright, levelled reader format!

What's in a name? Plenty, according to Christopher. He is tired of his ordinary name - millions of people are called Christopher, including three in his class alone! Christopher wants to be special, so he decides to change his name.

Inventing names for himself that are inspired by various heroes and celebrities, Christopher manages to convince everyone to call him by a different name. Of course the plan backfires when grandma sends a cheque and only his real name will do! The lovable hero of Please Clean Up Your Room! returns in this lighthearted story with a simple message about being special.
