Children's LiteratureWhat kid would not want to go to a school where the motto is "Growth, Learning, Pizza?" Rotten School is the place--there is a great map at the front of the book showing the layout of the campus. This is a boarding school where there are no parents. Bernie Bridges leads readers through the book, often with his champion racing slug Sluggo in his pocket, telling how and why he decides to change his behavior and personality for an entire week. This means he must change behavior which is mischievous, smart alecky, and pretty darn rotten most of the time. Why on earth would he want to do this? To have the company of one very cute fourth grade girl named April-May-June at a dance. The problem is, it is turning out to be a lot harder than he originally anticipated. There is a page of goofy stickers in the back of the book. This is the part of the "Rotten School" series, which includes the titles The Big Blueberry Barf-Off and The Great Smelling Bee. The author lives in New York City and is well known for his scary book series, such as "Goosebumps" and "Fear Street." Recommended. 2005, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 8 to 12.
