How much trouble can a burp get you into? A lot, if the burp is a magic one that makes you do wild and crazy stuff. It's Field Day for the fourth-graders at Edith B. Sugarman Elementary School, and George is determined to be on his best behavior, especially since a job as sportscaster for the new school TV station is hanging in the balance. But the magic burps--and one super-smelly skunk--are just as determined to foul up everything!
The Reverend Stephen Babbington seldom imbibes, but at a gala thrown by actor Sir Charles Cartwright, he indulges in a cocktail and falls over dead. Since there is no trace of poison or foul play, the case is closed.
As long-awaited fourth grade starts, Katie is overwhelmed when the magic wind causes her to switch twice--first into a new classmate and then into Mr. Starkey, the school band leader.
Just before Halloween, the magic wind helps fourth-grader Katie see the truth about a "witch" who lives in a supposedly haunted house.
In his continuing - but mainly disastrous - efforts to be an upstanding, responsible ten-year-old, George Brown decides it's time to earn some money. (There's also an expensive remote-controlled toy that he's been coveting.) But no matter what he tries - whether it's working at his mother's craft shop, opening a lemonade stand, or setting up a backyard circus for neighborhood kids - the magic burps erupt at exactly the wrong times and wreak havoc on George's entrepreneurial plans.
Fourth-grader Katie forgets to read the new book of her favorite author, Nellie Farrow, who comes to class for a discussion, but when Katie turns into Nellie, the presentation seems doomed! Includes a recipe for S'More Bananas.
