Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Rotten School motto is "Growth, Learning, Pizza", and their crest contains an apple, presumably rotten, with a worm emerging from it! Is it any wonder then that their football team, the Fighting Apples, is incapable of winning a game and is at the bottom of the league? Bernie Bridges is the quarterback for said loser team and is about to shake this up, literally. The girl who has a major crush on him, correction, a monster sized crush on him, is going to be his secret weapon. Her name is Jennifer Ecch and Bernie, not so affectionately, refers to her as "Nightmare Girl". Luckily for him, she will do just about anything to be near him, including being part of the football team. After a stupendous winning streak, the team realizes that the championship game will pit them against the "Bone Breakers" from the Huge Boys Academy! What will they do now? Lots of gross-out humor for those who appreciate it. This would be a great book for reluctant readers in the recommended age group. The author lives in New York City and has written many creepy, crawly books, including the wildly popular "Goosebumps" series. This is the fourth installment in the "Rotten School" series of books. Recommended. 2005, HarperCollins Publishers, Ages 8 to 12.

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.

Jennifer Ecch is so strong that is probably because she exercises but when she plays football she gets some more. When Big B. asked her to play football she said yes because she likes him. During the first game she played the team was losing and it was so awsome. They all win all the games just because of her. They have to go to the National Champion team(The Breakers). If someone attacks the Ecch, the team would be in the hospital.
