Bennet and Pete are back. They've named their Deep Doo-Doo Web site after their escapades during the last governor's election. Now all they need is some great news to post on it. Their wish comes true when, one morning, a pumpkin appears on top of the courthouse flagpole. The town is buzzing with questions: Who put it there? And why? Things really heat up when the local newspaper offers a five-hundred-dollar reward for solving the mystery. The cybersleuths are determined to find out, and they have some clues. Someone keeps sending them weird e-mails. And the boys figure the prank has something to do with the upcoming mayoral election. It smells like a cover-up to them.
Michael Delaney's raucous humor is just right for middle-grade readers as he pokes fun at political chicanery and dirty tricks in the computer age. Another zippy read for election time or anytime.
