Publisher: Atheneum

 On the heels of his triumphant acting debut (Nutty the Movie Star, 1989), Nutty Nutsell--now known as ``Parker House''-- captures the lead in The Tae Kwon Do Guy, a bad movie that (he realizes) is perfectly suited to his lack of talent. Worse, a disgruntled ghost is out to sabotage the flick and bring an end to the career of mercurial director Damian Deveraux. Can Nutty survive the ghost-hunting schemes of his brainy friend William Bilks, and also bow gracefully out of the film project? Yes--especially once he discovers that the ghost is willing to make a deal. Nutty displays both common sense and a stout heart in this seventh episode in a lightweight, popular series. (Fiction. 10-12)
