Travis Bee is the youngest of three sons of Reverend Bee, one of the town's most respected citizens. There are no lengths to which Travis won't go to attract attention to himself whether it's spraying the Sunday morning congregation with his water bottle, playing up his notorious hyena laugh in the classroom, stealing other kids' pencils, clowning around during church choir practice - or, most of all, teasing Mary Beth Harvey. Of course, Travis gets his comeuppance before long: he's chosen to sing the solo during the dedication service for the renovated church building, a prospect that both terrifies and pleases him. This time, however, he'll have to be on his best behavior, which means he's the perfect target for Mary Beth's revenge. It all makes for an uproarious finale to this rollicking good story about Monkey Mountain mischief.
