Why I liked this title:

Ever get the feeling you were switched at birth? I hope not! Guy Strang is absolutely convinced that he is the regular son of a regular set of parents -- NOT the outrageous, eccentric parents he has lived with all his life. Guy's friend, Buzz, helps him sneak into the school records where he learns that a fellow classmate, Bob-o Smith the nose-picker, was born on the same day in the same hospital as Guy. After spying on the Smiths and finding that he has many similar traits, Guy convinces Bob-o to switch homes for a week in an effort to prove to the Smith's that he is actually their son!
