Rotten School #13: Got Cake?

Chapter One

How to Be Popular

The most popular kid at Rotten School? Well, that's me, of course. Bernie Bridges. I suppose I'm probably the most popular fourth grader in history.

But don't ask me. Ask my hundreds of friends.

I'm a modest guy. I would never brag about how popular I am. Bragging is totally uncool.

How could I be the greatest dude who ever walked across campus if I bragged all the time?

So I'm not bragging. You can ask my twenty best friends.

They'd do anything for me. Anything.

It's easy to be surrounded by friends all the time. Really. You can do it, too. Here are my three rules for being popular:

1. Be generous
2. Be kind
3. Don't bite

I always try to follow all three rules.

That's why it was such a total shock to me when I had to prove how popular I am.

Whoa. Bernie Bridges in a popularity contest?

Could I lose? I don't think so.

I decided to prove it by throwing the biggest birthday party in the history of the known universe. But believe me, dudes and dudettes—it wasn't a piece of cake.

It all started on a sunny afternoon after classes. My friends and I were out on the Great Lawn, stomping on each other's shoes as hard as we could. . . .

Meet the Author

R.L. Stine began his writing career at the age of nine and has been at it ever since, becoming a bestselling author several times over. Among his many groundbreaking credits are Fear Street, the first young adult horror series, and Goosebumps, the bestselling series that made Stine the #1 bestselling author in America for three years in a row. He lives with his wife in New York City.


Trip Park grew up in Ithaca, New York, and went to college at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was first drawn to advertising. He then moved to Chicago, later New York, where he joined advertising agencies and worked on kids’ favorites including Cap’n Crunch, Gatorade, Kellogg’s, and Ronald McDonald. His children’s commercials have won numerous awards. But advertising also brought something equally as rewarding. There he got to work with some of his favorite illustrators. Watching these artists create their pieces inspired Trip Park to try his hand at illustrating himself.

Trip Park has illustrated a number of children's books including Gopher Up Your Sleeve, written by Tony Johnston, Trout, Trout, Trout! (A Fish Chant) and Ant, Ant, Ant! (An Insect Chant), both written by April Pulley Sayre. He has also developed characters and helped animate commercials for Nickelodeon, The California State Fair, Lego, and many others. When Rotten School came along, the opportunity to translate to the drawing board R.L. Stine’s cast of kids was a wonderful chance to combine his love for children’s illustration with this group of rotten students. His work can be seen at www.tripparkproductions.com.

Trip lives in Charlotte, NC with his wife, Laura and four children.
