A boy is asked to solve the mysterious death of a guinea pig at a girl’s pajama party. Was it the copious amounts of junk food? Was it the awful boy band music? Was it the frenetic dancing or the haphazardly applied cosmetics or the overzealous pillow fight or any of the other things the girls were up to that night?
Nathan doesn’t know nut he’s going to find out by reenacting every scenario the guinea pig was subjected to. If it was subjected to anything at all. Because what he eventually discovers is that the deceased pet is very much alive, and being asked by his sister and her friends to solve the mystery was all an elaborate trap to get back at him for his awful behavior. But if there are two things Nathan is good at, they are not recognizing the effects of his behavior on others and getting back at people who are getting back at him!
When Sara's friends all find their hair falling out they assume Nathan and his homemade lemonade are to blame. And rightfully so. But it's when Nathan tries to save the day that everything goes horribly wrong, at least for everyone but him.
Hair loss is one thing, but causing small wig fires, full-scale draughts, the cancellation of the town parade, and the destruction of the new Metroburg Aquarium is another.
Can Nathan set things right? Probably not. Can he NOT make things worse? Perhaps...
A simple complaint to the building department about how his new home is being built WITHOUT a fire pole, moat, and water slide leads to Nathan taking matters into his own hands, which eventually leads to a restraining order keeping him a hundred feet away from his own house.
But when he decides to file a restraining order against his school to keep it away from him, he inadvertently finds himself with a building permit a contract to build the new fairgrounds, and a wheelbarrow full of cash.
Along the way to building what might be the worst construction project of all time, Nathan accidentally causes an international incident when he manages to give his town back to the British,
But all that pales in comparison when Nathan finally has the proof he needs that everything is his sister Zara's fault, and how she truly is the most evil genius on the planet!
Daniel Pantsback wants to make his school's lacrosse team. That's it. That's all. But along the way a series of events happen to Daniel, his friends, and complete strangers that will result in an intergalactic confrontation where Earth hangs in the balance.
From an amnesiac boat captain to a stranded Inuit, a frustrated factory worker to a man with a metal detector on the beach, and an alien race with a hunger for anything resembling cows... or humans, everyone has a part to play in a much, much larger story.
So when Daniel gets a chance to shoot a winning goal, the outcome might just mean saving, or destroying the planet!
Daniel Pantsback and his best friends Molly and Martin McMartin are going to Ireland to visit their extended families.
But here is a difference between their two families, who were once close but now appear to be enemies. And there is a difference between the two towns where they live, located on opposite sides of the Ireland/Northern Ireland border.
But what they don't know yet is how a hot air balloon, super germs, a gold tooth, a magical well, a tiny Greek restaurant on a tiny Greek island, an enormous pair of glasses, and an angry leprechaun king will ruin their vacation, but possibly save the world.
