Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bernie Bridges has it all figured out. April-May June—the hottest girl in the fourth grade—will ask him to the annual girl-invite-boy school dance. They'll dance the night away, and April-May June will totally fall for him.

There's only one problem: Reality. April-May June doesn't WANT to go with Bernie. She wouldn't go with Bernie even if he was the last guy on earth.

Then Jennifer Ecch—the Nightmare Girl—swoops in and asks Bernie to the dance. Yuck! How can he shake the unshakable Ecch?

Bernie has a plan. He'll convince Jennifer that he is lower than toe fungus and not worthy enough to go to the dance with her. But love is blind. Jennifer loves Bernie—no matter what.

So Bernie has no choice. The time has come to hold a long-distance snot-blowing contest right in front of Jennifer. That should be gross enough to get Jennifer out of his life—shouldn't it?

About the Author

Robert Lawrence Stine started writing when he was nine years old, writing joke books for his friends at school — and he’s been writing ever since. He has always loved to write funny stuff and make kids laugh. For ten years, he was editor of a humor magazine called Bananas. Later he was head writer for a funny Nickelodeon TV show, “Eureka’s Castle”. In 1992 R.L. wrote his first Goosebumpsbook, Welcome to Dead House – he wrote 87 Goosebumpstitles, which were funny and scary at the same time. The books sold over 250 million copies and led to the hit TV show on Fox Kids Television and lots of bestselling DVDs and videos. R.L. also wrote the story for the cool 4-D movie that’s showing at Busch Gardens and Sea World called “R.L. Stine’s Haunted Lighthouse.”

R.L. Stine is proudest of the millions of kids who have learned to love reading through his books. His other series include Fear Street, The Nightmare Room, and Mostly Ghostly. R.L. likes to travel, visit schools, and talk about reading. He set up writing workshops in several schools in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. He even traveled to Russia with First Lady Laura Bush to talk to Russian kids in schools about books and reading.

R.L. Stine has won numerous awards and honors, including several Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards and Disney AdventuresKids' Choice Awards, and he has been selected by kids as one of their favorite authors in the National Education Association Read Across America.

R.L. Stine lives in NYC with his wife Jane. Their son Matt Stine and nephew Cody Stine (along with friend Liz Weinberg) wrote and performed the official “Rah Rah Rotten School" song. This year R.L. will be traveling around the country, meeting and talking to kids about the Rotten Schoolbooks in schools and bookstores. To find out where you can see him, check out and look for places near your hometown.

Rotten Schoolis R.L. Stine's latest creation — a hilarious new chapter book series for middle-grade readers.
