Principal Wagner confidently deals with a faculty washroom crisis, a psychic parrot, and a terrorizing gerbil, but when sixty-five erasers go missing, he enlists the help of the school's best problem solver and locator of lost items, twelve-year-old Lyle Williams, aka Mudshark.
Lyle Williams, aka Mudshark, is known to everyone in school as the one who can find just about anything. Lost homework? Check. Missing something? Check. In a very silly series of zany moments, Mudshark finds himself pitted against a new player, the Psychic Parrot who lives in the library. The school has serious issues: a gerbil's on the loose, all the erasers are missing, and there's a serious mess in the faculty bathroom. Will people start going to the parrot for help instead of Mudshark? Other similar books by Gary Paulsen include LAWN BOY and HOW ANGEL PETERSON GOT HIS NAME.
