Overview

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.

Chapter One

"Dudes, here's a spelling lesson," I told my friends. "How do you spell excitement?"

Belzer scratched his head. "Does it start with an X?"

I patted him on the back. "Nice try."

Belzer grinned his lopsided grin. "It was a lucky guess," he said.

"Yo, Belzer," Feenman said. "Do big noses run in your family?"

"I've heard that joke," Belzer said.

Feenman grinned. "Who's joking?"

"Give it a rest," I said. I pulled Feenman, Crench, Belzer, Nosebleed, and Billy the Brain into the Common Room. "This is how you spell excitement," I said.

"B-E-R-N-I-E."

That's me, see. I'm Bernie Bridges. Some people call me Grandmaster Dude, King of All the Fourth Graders. But I'd never say anything like that. I'm waaay too modest.

But when I have news, I have NEWS. That's why I dragged all my guys into the Common Room. It's a big room with couches and chairs, a TV, and a game table. It's like our living room.

You probably go home every day after school. But Rotten School is a boarding school. That means we live here, in a dorm. It's actually a falling down, old house called Rotten House. It's the best dorm on campus—mainly because Bernie B. liveshere.

Oops. There I go, being modest again!

My friend Beast was chewing a couch cushion. It took three guys to pull him away.

Beast is a good guy. But we're not sure if he's really human. He's too hairy to be a human. And last week he got caught chewing his initials into a tree trunk.

I like him. But I keep my fingers away from his mouth.

I stood at the head of the game table. "Dudes, I know you're wondering why I invited you here," I said.

Crench rolled his eyes. "Bernie, we know why," he said. "You want to have a poker game tonight. But we can't."

"We're broke," Feenman said. "You already took all our money. I swear!"

I made a spitting sound. "Forget poker games," I said. "That's small potatoes. I've got something BIG. Something exciting with a capital X!"

Now I had their attention. I pulled open my school blazer so they could see my T-shirt.

They all stared at it. Belzer sounded out the letters.

"Bernie, what's your problem?" Nosebleed asked. "Why does that say PPP on it?"

Beast tossed his head back and hee-hawed. "P-P-P. Get it? Get it?"

Crench tugged the front of my shirt. "If you have to go pee-pee, why wear a shirt about it?"

I pushed his hands away. "Crench, what did I tell you about trying to make a joke?

Do you want to strain your brain for life?"

"Well, what does PPP stand for?" Billy the Brain asked.

Yes! I even stumped the class brainiac!

"I'll tell you," I said.

But it'll take a whole chapter to explain it. Keep reading, everyone. . . .

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.
