Item description for My Life as a Blundering Ballerina (The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #13) by Bill Myers...
Overview At the suggestion of their speech teacher, Wally and his good friend Wall Street agree to switch places for three days to prove whether boys or girls are better
"It's way harder being a guy than a girl." "Is not." "Is too." "Is not " "Is too "
So begins another madcap McDoogle mishap as Wally agrees to switch places with Wall Street (his best friend even if she is a girl). Teachers, parents, friends, everyone is in on the act as the two try to survive 72 hours in each other's shoes. It's a custom-made Wally catastrophe that includes: exploding Home Ec cookies (apparently Wally used gun powder instead of baking powder), baby-sitting a mob of out-of-control monster babies, and imprisoned 2.2 hours in the bathroom every morning to fix his hair. Last, and by no means least, Wally must replace Wall Street as a star in The Nutcracker ballet
All in all it becomes one of Wally's greatest misadventures as he finally learns the important lesson of honoring and respecting others.

Reviews - What do customers think about My Life as a Blundering Ballerina (The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle #13)?
Hilarious Jun 21, 2001
Wally McDoogle gets into one scrape after another, always causing catastrophe after catastrophe. Now, he's been tricked into switching roles with one of his best friends, a girl named Wall Street. Unfortunately, during that period, a major football game takes place and the ballet "The Nutcracker" opens. Wally has to play Wall Street's part as the Sugar Plum Fairy, while Wall Street has to take his place in the football game.
Of course, numerous other major catastrophes occur as well, during those 72 hours.
One thing kept occurring to me. No matter what his sex is, if one is thrown into ballet or any other activity he is unfamiliar with, he will face a much harder time than someone who has practiced it for a long time. So if a boy doing ballet and a girl playing football switched places, they would both find it a lot harder.
There was a story in the story, a story Wally was writing about a superhero. I liked how Wally's superhero sometimes took on a life of its own, talking back to Wally and not doing what Wally wanted. I hear that real writers have that experience all the time.
In reading the well-known, oft-repeated dialog "Is too.""Is not." et al., I was reminded of the March of the Peers in "Iolanthe" by Gilbert and Sullivan. One faction of the peers (the tenors) shouted "Tan-tan-ta-ra!" while the other faction (the basses) countered with "Tsing boom!"
