Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>Joe Sweety is the worst kind of bully -- big, mean, and always ready to use his fists. Chipmunk is the shiest, clumsiest kid at Rotten School. When Chipmunk is paired with Joe on the class trip, things get ugly -- and fast! Chipmunk spills his apple juice on Joe, he barfs on Joe, and he pulls down Joe's pants. All accidents, of course. But does Joe care? No way! He is out to get Chipmunk!</p> <p>Bernie Bridges can't stand to see Chipmunk, one of his Rotten House guys, bullied by big, mean Sweety. So it's payback time -- and Bernie has a spook-tacular plan. It turns out that Sweety is scared of ghosts. Petrified! Bernie decides it's time for the Haunting of Joe -- with spooky messages on the computer, green protoplasm in his room, and a body-wrap in an eerie cocoon. Will Bernie's payback work? Will it scare Joe into niceness?</p>

Horn Book Review

In the latest Rotten School books, Bernie Bridges uses a ghost to face down a bully and works to get rid of a terrifying new teacher. Stine writes decent plots but mixes in irritating characters and predictable, repetitive jokes. Kids may enjoy these books for a quick read but few will return a second time. Black-and-white illustrations accompany the stories. [Review covers these Rotten School titles: Dudes, The School is Haunted! and The Teacher from Heck.] (c) Copyright 2010.
