Could you choose between a superpower and a friend?

The evil treasure hunter Damien Black needs some quick cash--so he robs the local bank. But Damien Black didn't figure Dave Sanchez into his plan.

The Black mansion is a house of hysterical horrors, but somehow he and Sticky manage to navigate the maze and escape with the cash. Asombroso Dave thinks he's home free, but Damien Black isn't one to give up easily--more than the cash, he wants Dave's wrist band, and he's got a dastardly devious plan that even an invisible boy won't be able to slip out of.

Synopsis:

Dave's most despised teacher, a gleeful frog dissector named Ms. Veronica Krockle, is absent. Her students are psyched! But Sticky is suspicious. Especially when the substitute teacher turns out to be strangelyinterested in geckos. Or rather, boys with "pet "geckos.
