The "New York Times"-bestselling team behind "Peter and the Starcatchers" returns with this story of mystery, danger, international suspense, and a very nervous frog--a thriller about a foreign criminal rigging a middle-school science fair.
From the Publisher:
Grdankl the Strong, president of Kprshtskan, is plotting to take over the American government. His plan is to infiltrate the science fair at Hubble Middle School, located in a Maryland suburb just outside Washington. The rich kids at Hubble cheat by buying their projects every year, and Grdankl's cronies should have no problem selling them his government-corrupting software. But this year, Toby Harbinger, a regular kid with Discount Warehouse shoes, is determined to win the $5,000 prize--even if he has to go up against terrorists to do it. With the help of his best friends, Tamara and Micah, Toby takes on Assistant Principal Paul Parmit, aka "The Armpit", a laser-eyed stuffed owl, and two eBay buyers named Darth and the Wookiee who seem to think that the Harrison-Ford-signed BlasTech DL-44 blaster Toby sold them is a counterfeit. What transpires is a hilarious adventure filled with mystery, suspense, and levitating frogs. |
Annotation:
Eighth-grader Toby Harbinger sets out to expose the sordid truth behind his middle school's science fair: a history of store-bought (rather than student created) first place projects. However, when Toby finally speaks up, he's framed as a cheater himself and suspended from school. Things get even more complicated when Toby's claims set off an international incident involving the evil President of Kprshtskan and his plot to overthrow the United States government. Can Toby save the day...or at least come up with a prize-winning project?Eighth-grader Toby Harbinger sets out to expose the sordid truth behind his middle school's science fair: a history of store-bought (rather than student created) first place projects.

Author Bio
Dave Barry
Dave Barry won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary in 1988. He is a prolific author of books showing the humorous side of everyday life, both original works and collections of his syndicated newspaper column. If Barry has a focus, one could say it is on people who own their own home (or who will eventually own their home when they finally pay off their mortgage). Barry wrote for his high school newspaper and his college newspaper. A graduate of Haverford College in 1969, Barry also plays the guitar. He was the inspiration for "Dave's World", a television show that was cancelled.
