Arnold’s head is shaped like a football. He lives in a boarding house under a freeway. He deals with bullies, lost baseballs, a pig named Abner, and a tough girl named Helga who constantly teases him but secretly writes poems about him. Sound bad? Not for Arnold. His neighborhood is the only place he ever wants to be.
