Don’t Check Out This Book!

by Kate Klise

Is the sweet town of Appleton ripe for scandal? Consider the facts:

-Appleton Elementary School has a new librarian named Rita B. Danjerous. (Say it fast.) -Principal Noah Memree barely remembers hiring her. -Ten-year-old Reid Durr is staying up way too late reading a book from Ms. Danjerous’s controversial “green dot” collection. -The new school board president has mandated a student dress code that includes white gloves and bow ties available only at her shop.

Sound strange? Fret not. Appleton’s fifth-grade sleuths are following the money, embracing the punny, and determined to the get to the funniest, most rotten core of their town’s juiciest scandal. Don’t miss this seedy saga from the creators of the award-winning Three-Ring Rascals and 43 Old Cemetery Road series!
