Bernie Bridges has always dreamed about going to PPP-the exclusive Preppy Prep Prep school. All the kids at PPP are rich, rich, rich! And if there is one thing that Bernie loves it's money, money, money! But how will Bernie get to PPP? All he and his buddies have to do is win the National School Make-a-Great-Invention Contest, and off they go to PPP for a week to compete in the final round. There's just one problem-their best ideas are a Hamster on a Stick and a light-up comb! With a little scheming and a lot of luck, Bernie and his guys manage to win their school contest. But when they get to Preppy Prep Prep, Bernie must come up with yet another invention-this one cleverer than the first. No sweat! But the filthy rich PPP kids are smarter and sneakier than any kid at Rotten School. Has Bernie finally met his match?
Hey! Where Is Everyone? That's what Bernie Bridges wants to know when he can't find any of his friends. Everyone has disappeared! And when he finally does find them, they're acting really weird. For instance, his shy friend Chipmunk thinks he is a fearless warrior, and football star Jennifer Ecch thinks she is a princess. What is going on? Soon Bernie realizes that everyone at Rotten School is acting! They are all playing parts in a big battle. A battle between the Dum Diddys and the Knighty Knight Knights. But it's not a real fight. It's a video game called Wungo Warriors--and everyone has to pay that spoiled rich kid Sherman Oaks to play. Bernie can't let Sherman get away with this. He has a plan to outsmart Sherman--by bringing the Wungo Warriors to life! What Bernie doesn't know, though, is that a real-life battle between the Dum Diddys and the Knighty Knight Knights could shut down Rotten School forever.
The most popular dude in school? It has to be Bernie Bridges. Just ask him! Bernie wants to win the Most Popular Rotten Student of the Year title. But first he has to prove he's the most popular dude on campus. How? Easy. He'll get Jennifer Ecch, the yearbook photographer, to follow him around. All she has to do is snap pictures of him being popular. When that doesn't work, Bernie decides to throw himself the biggest birthday party ever. But, look out, Bernie . . . . Some birthday parties turn out to be surprise parties!
Why are the Rotten School kids screaming in terror? Maybe it's because everyone on campus is making a horror movie! Bernie Bridges wants to make the most terrifying film of all. If he does, he'll win a part in the famous director B.A. Gool's next film: EEK III: Revenge of the Warts. Bernie thinks he's got some great creepy ideas. But he's better watch out on Halloween night--it's going to be a real scream!
Bernie Bridges is the luckiest kid at Rotten School. He wins every game he plays, doesn't get into any trouble, and even finds money! So what's the catch? For the good luck to stick, Bernie has to keep his parrot, Lippy, on his shoulder wherever he goes. Lippy's luck is so powerful that Bernie's friends, Feenman and Crench, want in, too. But the minute they touch Lippy, everything changes--Lippy turns into a bad-luck bird. Now nothing Bernie does goes right. Bad luck follows him wherever he goes. There's only one solution, thinks Bernie. He'll give the bird away to his archrival, Sherman Oaks. But hold on! Now Sherman is having all the good luck in the world. Has Bernie made a big mistake? Can he get both his bird and his good luck back--or has his luck run out for good?
Buffalo wings of steel! Just how stupid is Stupid Chicken? Bernie Bridges thinks the superfowl cartoon character is a dumb cluck! And the same goes for his chirpy sidekick, Little Cluck-Cluck. But why not make a buck from a cluck? Bernie tries to sell Stupid Chicken T-shirts to his pals. One problem--half the school hates Stupid Chicken. Their hero is Drastic Duck, the Caped Quacker. Now Bernie finds himself caught in the middle of the battle between the Clucks and the Quacks!
Sherman Oaks Is A Rat. Sherman is so spoiled and rich that he threw away his allowance because some of the hundred-dollar bills were wrinkled! He and his goody-goody friends and Nyce House are always trying to get Bernie Bridges and his Rotten House buddies into trouble. Well Bernie's in big trouble now. Bernie has a dog in his room, Sherman know it -- and there are NO PETS ALLOWED at Rotten School! Bernie has to find a way to hide Gassy, his dog. But the dog stinks. Hey, why do you think they call him Gassy?
April-May June Loves Bernie Bridges . . . she just doesn't know it yet. She's the coolest hottest girl in the school and Bernie thinks she should go to the dance with him. April-May won't even be seen with Bernie because he's such a troublemaker. So Bernie makes her a promise--a really scary promise. He says he'll stay out of trouble for a whole week if she promises to go to the dance with him. Bernie is shaking, quivering, quaking. Can he turn into a goody-goody--especially when it's time for the famous (against the rules!) super slimy slug race?
Jennifer Ecch is so tough... She's at Rotten School on an Arm Wrestling scholarship! Bernie Bridges calls her Nightmare Girl. But she'll do anything to get him to be her boyfriend. That's why she joined the all-boys football team. With Jennifer playing, they can't lose. But wait. If they win, they have to play the National Champion team -- the Bone Breakers! Someone's got to stop the attack of the Ecch -- or else Bernie and his teammates will be in the hospital by halftime!
Chipmunk is so shy... He inhales when he sneezes! He even blushes when he's asleep! He plays guitar in the closet so he won't disturb anyone. But he just may be the best rock 'n' roll guitarist of all time! And Bernie Bridges needs him to win the annual Talent Contest for Rotten House. Bernie will do anything to keep the prize away from Sherman Oaks and his pals at Nyce House. Can Chipmunk conquer his stage fright and win? Or -- when Bernie pushes him onstage, will it be Shake, Rattle, and HURL?!
Is Mrs. Heinie Gone Forever? Mrs. Heinie is so nearsighted, she can't find her nose without her glasses on! But she doesn't have to see to know that Bernie Bridges and his Rotten House buddies are up to no good. Cuz they're ALWAYS up to no good! Mrs. H. decides she can't take it anymore! She's replaced by a teacher named Mr. Skruloose. He's the Teacher from HECK! He's so strict, he won't let kids SNEEZE! And he gives four hours of homework every night! Mr. Skruloose HAS to go. The annual Water War is under way. Who has time for homework? Can Bernie think up a scheme to bring Mrs. Heinie back? Does a weasel have lips?
Bernie Bridges has it all figured out. April-May June--the hottest girl in the fourth grade--will ask him to the annual girl-invite-boy school dance. They'll dance the night away, and April-May June will totally fall for him. There's only one problem: Reality. April-May June doesn't WANT to go with Bernie. She wouldn't go with Bernie even if he was the last guy on earth. Then Jennifer Ecch--the Nightmare Girl--swoops in and asks Bernie to the dance. Yuck! How can he shake the unshakable Ecch? Bernie has a plan. He'll convince Jennifer that he is lower than toe fungus and not worthy enough to go to the dance with her. But love is blind. Jennifer loves Bernie--no matter what. So Bernie has no choice. The time has come to hold a long-distance snot-blowing contest right in front of Jennifer. That should be gross enough to get Jennifer out of his life--shouldn't it?
Speaking in front of the class isn't easy for small people like Melissa Herman. Especially when there's nothing very special to say about her house or her family or herself. But with the help of her older brother, Melissa borrows a bottle from her father's dental office to take to show and tell. The teacher is appalled, but the children are intrigued. David Catrow's hilariously zany illustrations reveal that there is nothing ordinary about Melissa Herman, or her house or her family. The bright artwork is laugh-aloud funny and will have children begging to hear the story again, or maybe invent their very own tale.
Angel Goodeboy is a perfect angel... You can almost picture a halo over his head! He even wears a T-shirt that says "Mommy's Little Angel." Bernie Bridges is horrified when Mrs. Heinie makes him share his room with Angel.
Grave-robbing. What kind of monster would do such a thing? It's true that Leonardo da Vinci did it, Shakespeare wrote about it, and the resurrection men of nineteenth-century Scotland practically made it an art. But none of this matters to Joey Crouch, a sixteen-year-old straight-A student living in Chicago with his single mom. For the most part, Joey's life is about playing the trumpet and avoiding the daily humiliations of high school. Everything changes when Joey's mother dies in a tragic accident and he is sent to rural Iowa to live with the father he has never known, a strange, solitary man with unimaginable secrets. At first, Joey's father wants nothing to do with him, but once father and son come to terms with each other, Joey's life takes a turn both macabre and exhilarating. Daniel Kraus's masterful plotting and unforgettable characters make Rotters a moving, terrifying, and unconventional epic about fathers and sons, complex family ties, taboos, and the ever-present specter of mortality.From the Hardcover edition.

Travis Rayne Pickering argues that the advent of ambush hunting approximately two million years ago marked a milestone in human evolution, one that established the social dynamic that allowed our ancestors to expand their range and diet. He challenges the traditional link between aggression and human predation, however, claiming that while aggressive attack is a perfectly efficient way for our chimpanzee cousins to kill prey, it was a hopeless tactic for early human hunters, who--in comparison to their large, potentially dangerous prey--were small, weak, and slow-footed. Technology that evolved from wooden spears to stone-tipped spears and ultimately to the bow and arrow increased the distance between predator and prey and facilitated an emotional detachment that allowed hunters to stalk and kill large game. Based on studies of humans and of other primates, as well as on fossil and archaeological evidence, Rough and Tumble offers a new perspective on human evolution by decoupling ideas of aggression and predation to build a more realistic understanding of what it is to be human.
"It's a joy to announce that John Sandford is still doing everything right," wrote the Cleveland Plain Dealer about the second adventure of Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers. "Virgil acts like the best series protagonists-- becoming someone we just enjoy spending time with." Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort, where a woman has been shot while kayaking. The resort is for women only, a place to relax, get fit, recover from plastic surgery, commune with nature, and while it didn't start out to be a place mostly for those with Sapphic inclinations, that's pretty much what it is today. Which makes things all the more complicated for Virgil, because as he begins investigating, he finds a web of connections between the people at the resort, the victim, and some local women, notably a talented country singer. The more he digs, the more he discovers the arrows of suspicion that point in many directions, encompassing a multitude of motivations: jealousy, blackmail, greed, anger, fear. Then he finds that this is not the first murder, that there was a second, seemingly unrelated one, the year before. And that there's about to be a third, definitely related one, any time now. And as for the fourth ... well, Virgil better hope he can catch the killer before that happens. Because it could be his own. Rich with the brilliant plotting and compulsively readable prose that are his hallmarks, Rough Country is another immensely satisfying tale by one of our very best suspense writers.
