Everyone's favorite underdogs are back! Can they land work on a movie set - and foil a cat burglar - with their unusual and motley skills?
School is out for the summer, and the Dunderheads are finally rid of the awful Miss Breakbone. Or so they thought! Teen star Ashley Throbb-Hart is shooting a movie nearby, and who should show up as an extra but their formidable former teacher! She's not the only Breakbone on the scene, either; after a string of burglaries strikes town, Miss Breakbone steers her barrel-chested brother, Police Chief Breakbone, toward those meddling, good-for-nothing Dunderheads. And when Spider ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, the blowhard chief has all the evidence he needs to lock him up. Can Einstein, Wheels, Nails, Spitball, Google-Eyes, Clips, Junkyard, Pencil, and Hollywood combine their talents to catch the real criminal before they join their friend behind bars? Newbery Medalist Paul Fleischman and illustrator David Roberts reunite for a delightfully triumphant sequel to The Dunderheads.
Summer has finally arrived, and not only does this mean the end of school, but freedom from the evil Miss Breakbone. The Dunderheads have big plans to be extras in a movie being shot with their favorite actress, Ashley Throbb-Hart, but are horrified to discover that Miss Breakbone is an extra, too! To make matters even worse, Spider gets blamed for a break-in he didn't commit. Determined get him out of the jail and away from the corrupt police chief who also happens to be related to Miss Breakbone, the kids decide they have to find the thief themselves. With comic illustrations, this is a sequel to THE DUNDERHEADS.
